I have been away from here my friends
sad I do feel
things have been a little blue in our home
we are taking one day at a time
we are making time for each other
we are especially looking to be
kind to one another....
and I rest in my God
and the knowledge that
this too will pass....

Our Friends

I am so thankful
for my friends
 friends are our lifeline
our support and our help
they stand by us
the thick and the thin
they help make us
who we are....

Pause and give thanks
for the friendships
you have today
honour and bless
each one for what they are
for what they do for you
and how they enhance
 your life

Embrace the moments
both the big and the small
the great and the not so
the litte details
that only a true friend knows
give thanks for
those who indent
heart marks
along life's way

.......in the words of a dear friend
Beth who always ends her notes to me
with this beautiful saying:
'Peace and Blessings'

Learning to Fly

After reading an excerpt from the book 'Chrysalis' by Emma Kate Codrington, I have come up with my piece for my writing group this week. She suffered anorexia nervosa in her teenage years & now looks to raise awareness & funds for a respite centre here in Adelaide. Our subject matter is "sticks & stones" & this took me down a completely different path to what I was expecting, or had initially thought....

This is the piece from Emma's book:


i wasn't so fragile
and breakable
like a faerie
i could run wild, barefoot
and free
i trusted myself
someone adored me
i felt beautiful
i could cry & release the gunk
i could fly

Emma Kate Codrington

this is my piece:


Macy wants to fly
fly away
from this world
from her current frame
she is going to
her body
her image onto
another screen

…...set off and be free

As I look on
with horror
at the sticks now forming
inside her fragile shell
I only see
Macy emaciated
beyond recognition
of her former self

Macy I want you to be
truly free
free from your
broken view
your disjointed
parody of life
only then
will you run
faerie like and free
only then will
you be beautiful
and fly...
