Ceremony, connection, laugher, tears, goosebumps, stories, singing, dancing, hugging, meditating, making music, walking amongst the trees with people who love them like I do. Pure bliss!
Can I show you pics of the lovely people and what we got up to? Nopey nope! I wish I could but I can't. I'll hold the times and the photos close to my heart instead. To those who were there, just let me say, I love you all, and you are all amazing humans, and may we meet again soon, because I can feel your hearts all the way out there across Australia and New Zealand, and it is something to hold to, but will not be enough forever.
Special mention to Dusty and Jenni, my fellow WA-ites, who shared a cabin with me and made me feel like a kid camping again. You both rock and I love you lots!
Here is the hillside beyond the campground with a distant rainbow.
Almost the very best thing? I made it! No crashes, no bad reactions, I was full of energy for the whole four days no matter how hectic it got. I had to be careful, especially of what I ate and breathed, but ten years ago, if someone had told me that one day I would be well enough to do such a thing, I'd have thought they totally sucked for teasing me. Chronic Lyme *can* be treated and managed well enough to have a good life again, and I am living proof, but I will never take it for granted. I'm loving every moment of it.
Home is good too. I'm still bouncy happy Tina. No post-con depression. I am every day working to add more of my spirituality into my life. Seeking to find out who I am at core, and making sure I prioritise those parts of my life that feed that. We are all works in progress, and I'm working on it. Always will be, I'm sure.
More time in nature...
More time with good friends, human and animal...
More time doing work of the hands...
|The moccs are getting a makeover.|
|Druid tabard to be...|
|New kids' story coming soon!|
More time doing service for my community at both my brigades, including my amazing new bushfire brigade, Chidlow VBFB...
|Shiny new jacket for a shiny new beginning!|
More time snuggling you-know-who...
And apparently less time crocheting, because that same you-know-who likes sitting on the current afghan way too much lately.
Blogging is still going to be less frequent, but I miss the diary element of my time here. I might endeavour to be more regular with it. We'll see. Lots else to do these days!
I wish for you all, "a blessing upon your days, a blessing upon your lives, a blessing upon the land." /|\
