My Photo
Location: Katoomba, NSW, Australia

here I am in a little cottage that evokes the energies of my ancestral lands - a cottage on the moors of Cornwall, or on the cliff tops of Ireland or Scotland. It has a hearth. I am a hedge witch {of sorts}. I wear upcycled clothes, patchouli oil and Redback boots. I am a gypsy; an eccentric and a mystic [I often live with a foot in two worlds]. I serve my guests, tea from an old silver teapot. I love Vervain, yarrow, chamomile & mint. Star watcher and Moon gazer. story cloth weaver. keeper of family dreams and wishes. good friend and creator of life. herbal tea drinker and potion maker.

Plan ahead and dream of all the beautiful things that life has to offer

we WILL remember them

the beginning of the term we know - 'the little aussie battler' - strong, young men, sent to fight for our wonderful country. Some never to return.
and of course, today is the day that we simply must make ANZAC BISCUITS and if we have the chance, we play two-up - oh my pa loved that game !! illegal as it was!

Ms*R, as a 1940s fan and being very interested in wartime I have read sooo many stories, seen so many documentaries and generally been very interested in what happened to real people in the wars...but always I have been ashamed of how my generation seemed oblivious to what went on and the sacrifices made...today in Australia I feel proud and very emotional that Australia recognizes and celebrates all those who fought and died. I am proud to remember anyone, whatever nationality that left his or her home, to protect their homeland

It's nice to see you and Nicole have posted about Anzac day too, we need to pass this reminder onto our children too so they can share it with the generations to come.
