|Just breathe!!!! That's all we need to do.|
Rushing, rushing rushing this time of year.
I was so busy yesterday doing last minute Christmas shopping, writing and sending cards, rushing to meet friends for coffee/ice cold drink...all in 40 degrees...I nearly fainted in Oxford Street.
Not a good look when a girl slumps outside the post office! Anyway, the old 'head down and bend over'' routine worked and after a little sit down I trundled off to the car, cranked up the air-conditioning and thought...does it really matter if I don't get the last present!! Not a tap really.
So...today it'll just be breathing! No rushing anywhere. Here's some 'breathing' inspiration.
|On the way to Dayboro....a land of milk and honey....just 30km from Brisbane.|
|Oh, look you can ride horses....or just follow Mother Duck.|
|This is the Dayboro 'rubbedy dub' (i.e. pub aka hotel)|
|There are 'bears' in those hills!!!!!!|
Well, not really....just cute, cuddly koalas.

|A little "worker's cottage" in Newmarket, Brisbane....we were on our way to see|
Joan Armatrading. (Joan was brilliant by the way. Thanks Joan.)
|William Jolly Bridge....I love crossing this bridge....you get a spectacular|
view of the city and my favourite spot in Brisbane....GOMA!
|The Big, Black, Beautiful Box that is known as GOMA....Gallery of Modern Art.|
You'll hear lots about this place....I'm mad about the box (and the boy, of course)!
Yes, a lot to be said for slowing down and breathing! You become much more aware don't you think?
P.S. I'll be doing a Christmas Post next week, just before Santa arrives. You can also sign up for the automatic email posts that will pop into your inbox if you like.
And apologies to those who don't want all these photographs popping into their inbox and cluttering things up. I'm looking into that so you just receive a 'teaser' in your inbox...and then you can click into the posts.
|Waiting for Joan.|
