Where have I been?

I have been away from here for far too long my friends. I think perhaps I just needed to step away and re-group. I have had to sift and sort through some 'stuff' and work out how I patch up a tattered and weary heart and jaded soul and step out again.

A dear friend of mine perhaps sensed the need for me to get away and so we sojourned for a writing retreat up at Mt Tamborine in QLD. It was superb, it was sublime, it was mentally, emotionally and spiritually refreshing.

We met some truly amazing people who just blew me away with their lifestyle choices - they showed me that they truly live by faith each and every day - and I have come back home feeling better. I am more grounded, I am quiet, I am subdued but I am better - and I am writing lots!!

I am now planning a sustainable veggie garden and making adjustments to my pace of life. My studies are now more manageable and I am smiling on the inside.

This is all good stuff and this is what I am thankful for today!!! Hope you all have a lovely weekend.

  4. Lovely to read this post Tiff, you seemed serene when I saw you last, and serenity is a wonderful state to be in.

  5. Last year after Mother died, I was just like you were...spiritually, emotionally, and physically drained. Then I went to the Relevant Conference at the end of October and it did exactly as your writing retreat did...totally lifted me, heart and soul.

    I'm so glad you were able to do that. I look forward to reading more from you!
