Patience….. 2 more weeks

Hey Everybody. I am seriously excited since in just 2 weeks I am going to the fantastic Tasmania! Hang in there and in no time I’ll be posting some lovely pics!  

Magical photos

Here are the photos I’ve promised. These are not recent because of the changes in the weather and I apologise.

Do you know that magical moment when everything seems to stop as if the world is urging you to take a photo so then you do it. Those moments are very scarce and you gotta catch them as they go by.

Here are some of those magical moments…..

There are a lot more magical moments I wish to post but they will be kept for another time. My favourite photo ever taken is the bottom one. I swam in this pool!!!! AMAZING!

All these photos are taken by me and my father. THEY ARE NOT OFF THE INTERNET!!! However cool they may look.

P.S. You can see my silhouette in one of the photos.

 

I hope you liked them. Thx!

Stairway – The Daily Post

Inspired by today's prompt, I thought I would write something. I hope you
Like my short descriptive piece!

The stairs curved away in what seemed to be an endless drop. I was having second thoughts about this. I hate it when people dare you to do something absolutely 
preposterous that they know is very hard or scary. I bet they can't even do this themselves. 

I was in the Library at the top of the staircase leading down to the 
where all the books are neatly stacked on bookshelves. I can't bear 
myself to do this. I love the library and the librarian Mrs. Willows
dearly and it hurts me to do this. 

Now I know you're wondering "Why don't I just fake it and say I did it 
when I next saw those obnoxious boys," but they are here. Waiting for
me at the bottom staring up at me watching for the first signs of 
backing out so they could bully me and call me a chicken.

I clutched the banister tightly thinking all those thoughts when the
leader of the group peers up with a sneer on his face and called out
"Well hurry up! Don't want Mrs. W to come do you? You'd be banned from 
the library caught trying to slide down the banister."
"Well I am though so I will be banned from the library even if I did do
it" I shot back. 
His face darkened and said 
"Just do it," 
I knew I should of said "no" when I hopped up on the banister of the 
stair,  and say its very disrespectful and I wouldn't do it.
I knew I should of said "Do it yourself" when I sat on the edge.
I knew I should of never said "Of course I can do it." when I braced 
myself to let go.
And I knew that I shouldn't throw my life away with both hands when I letgo of the banister. 

Windows flew by.
Stairs flew by.
Books flew by.
Pages flew by. 
I flew.

Down, down, down I went. Falling, falling, falling. Everything's
falling down. 

"Life is to short to do such things," I thought. 


Thanks for reading. I hope you enjoyed it. I promise you the next post 
will contain photos!!!! ;-)

“Not all those who wonder are lost” – J. R. R. Tolkien 

This is my favourite quote. I live by it. It’s kind of my motto. 

I like getting lost, its fun. 

Whether on a hike or squashed inbetween camping gear in the car,  I love to wonder the earth, particularly in my homeland Australia. 

There’s 2 types of lost. Which do you prefer?
Definition 1 – meaning confused, uncertain, unsure, fustrated, scared and puzzled; or
Definition 2 – free, careless, happy, freedom, joyful, wandering, and in the moment.


I like the latter much more. 

Here’s another quote I like by Roald Dahl’s Willy Wonka:

“There is no earthly way of knowing what direction we are going…” 

Some call it lost, some call it wandering but I call it travelling.
Keep tuned for my next post!
