Time to go home

It's all being thrown at me at once... son wants to leave the country, CG still wants to catch up, even though I've said I am going home and that it's not good for me to be here, and I can't say no to people, so I am going to find my study time squeezed because I feel it's only fair to give him some...

Four days in

I arrived on Friday morning, not as exhausted as usual, after a nice flight through Abu Dhabi... it was my fortune to be seated among a large crowd of people returning from Mecca to Sydney. I knew this because my companion for the trip told me that he (and most of his family, and many others on the... Sign in to see full entry.

And, about-face...

I thought I'd reached a decision. I thought I had a plan. A beautiful new apartment came my way, and I moved in. A stable place, in the land of out-of-season daffodils, in which to just put my head down and do my work. Four days later, I flew home for a few weeks, hopefully for less than four...

The Wanderer Checks In

Just for a moment.. my wanderings have been through the mental wilderness my life has turned into since becoming involved with HB here. He can't have any idea of -- or may not actually care about -- the havoc that he, and my ex-husband's dishonest, hopelessly irrational and thoroughly unacceptable... Sign in to see full entry.

Quietly screaming

The herons have four eggs now... I feel very proud, somehow... dragged a couple of colleagues in to show them, while the hen was standing up and primping her nest. Yesterday in the early evening, CG rang to tell me he has become a grandfather again... nice news. I was happy for him, told him I'd... Sign in to see full entry.

Whales and rainbows

My two-day trip was very nice; congenial company, a stop or two to admire the coastal scenery, a rain shower or two -- some quite prolonged -- and at least four rainbows on the first day. I do like rainbows. I took some photos of the rocky shores when we stopped at Seal Point, and when we walked up... Sign in to see full entry.

Now what do I do?

A dilemma. CG (construction guy) has called and wondered if I would like to accompany him on a trip he has to make next week. He needs to pick up a digger of some kind... so romantic (smiles)... but setting that aside, although it is nice to be asked, what happens next? I asked how long he would be...

Induced panic.

"Basically I'm in a state of induced panic." Kevin Rudd (Primer Minister), speaking about his fear of an encounter with Bruno on the Rove McManus TV program last night. "Perhaps it is lucky for Mr Rudd that they did not share the stage because Bruno's appraisal was straight to the point: " Your... Sign in to see full entry.


Life has calmed again, by what miracle I don't quite know. God; faith; prayer... Give it time; I'm sure I will have other meltdowns, other bad days. What matters right this minute is what's important; to love someone by giving them what they need, no matter how much it hurts. Today, I've reached out... Sign in to see full entry.
