Full moon tonight. We climbed Topped Mountain at 20 to midnight. I said thank you for all the blessings this month. For the support and for the manifestation of a beautiful new home. A complete energy shift. From the cocoon of the cottage in the dell to the open bog and wide horizons. I might find my own name for this little house at Tully. Shall we paint the cornerstones copper and front door blue or duck egg and purple red? New landscapes to discover. Night time walks under the open gaze of the moon.

I sit awake, in the kitchen at the Beeches. In flux, In flow. Moving onward from the Sea. Embracing the Unknown. Trusting more than ever before that I am being guided. I have asked to create. To record in charcoal and paint the most powerful of the new images and visions from this last phase of Life and Exploration. An artist, shaman, seeker, seer. A soul bravely sailing these new skies so wide. (And wide open they are now to be. Just 20 minutes from the sea, a whole new world awaits. Serenity and mystery, all to be unravelled, nestled safe and warm in our oasis in this vast new landscape.
I have grown and alighted from the nest of lakeview cottage.
From the beautiful womb, from the safest cocoon. The swans will be painted, in remembrance and gratitude – for their elegance, strength and their wild song and dance on the waters surrounding me. My first home alone. The certain answer to my seeking prayers. Silence and solitude. All fears gently washed away. Protected by the dell, the drumlins of Durnesh enveloped me mind, body, and spirit. I rested and dreamed, swam and sang. The loudest and freest version of myself. I found my voice. And I am intensely grateful for the beauty and abundance of these five years of true self discovery. Foraging every plant from the garden and laneway, learning their secrets. Allowing Nature Her time to teach and heal. I carry all of these lessons now safe within me. That the beauty of this watery place may remain alive and strong in memory within me and that I may share its truest essence with the world. I muse now at this Work. The next phase is a Time for Completion of the Cycle – and at the same time a New Beginning. As this Dream of Love and Light Unfolds. Mena with me – may she embrace the changes, sweet soul.
Jonny my love embracing me. Climbing the mountains step by step. Choosing to walk together. And Buddha Buddy our constant companion. In good company we four are. Content, Free, Protected, This Life is so astoundingly Beautiful. I will breathe deeper on this next phase.
