...WELCOME TO MY WORLD...WHERE ALL LIFE IS SACRED...AND ALL     LIVING THINGS ARE FREE...
Hello...thanks for stopping by...it's great to spend some time with you...I'm still experimenting with my computer...thankfully it's a labor of love...well, MOST of the time!!! I hope you find the site more interesting each time you visit, which, I hope, will be often...

There are some brilliant pages on the web, which both inspire and daunt me simultaneously...bear with me 'cause this isn't one of them!!

I live in subtropical Australia, where the winters are mild...but summers are another story!!! My favorite seasons are spring and autumn...I love the delicious scents of newborn flowers and the pungent aromas from the wood fires that herald the coming of cooler nights. I'm into all kinds of things...from the magical to the mystical...the serene to the sublime...the sadness and the sweetness of Life...laughter, and wise, gentle people...music, the arts, cinema, happy children, Zen buddhism, friendship...reading, Japanese culture, beautiful gardens, the sound of the ocean, watching birds in flight...Happiness, love, and enlightenment are thing I actively seek.

I share my life with my favorite person in the world, and, of course, my little dog, Rusty, who is as cute as two buttons and bolder than brass!!! I also have a darling feline lady, my companion of 13 years.
I try to live my life by five precepts...

Look..Listen..Learn..Laugh..Love

I have much to learn, and hope I am still acquiring knowledge when I've got one foot in the grave, and the other one not far behind it!!!

As you can see, I'm blessed with a sense of humor and hope you are too...Be kind to yourself and to others...The Earth needs friends and so do her creatures...



There are many endangered creatures on our planet that need our help...Please support any organizations that can help in your local area.  The longest journey begins with the first step...a single voice, joined with other single voices becomes a powerful tool in preventing the cruelties and injustices perpetrated on our fellow human beings, and the forests, lakes, mountains and creatures that make our Earth such a beautiful and diverse treasure.

Help preserve our  living heritage...give it a place in your heart which shines with the brilliance of a billion stars.

Every person can make a difference.

~A NATIVE AMERICAN PERSPECTIVE~


..THE EARTH IS OUR MOTHER...CARE FOR HER..

..HONOR ALL YOUR RELATIONS..

..OPEN YOUR HEART TO THE GREAT SPIRIT..

..ALL LIFE IS SACRED -TREAT ALL BEINGS WITH RESPECT..

..TAKE FROM THE EARTH WHAT IS NEEDED AND NOTHING MORE..

..DO WHAT NEEDS TO BE DONE FOR THE COMMON GOOD..

..GIVE THANKS TO THE GREAT SPIRIT FOR EACH NEW DAY..

..SPEAK THE TRUTH; BUT ONLY OF THE GOOD IN OTHERS..

..FOLLOW THE RHYTHMS OF NATURE..

..ENJOY LIFE'S JOURNEY..

    Thank you, Penelope, for the good wishes. I realize that you are probably having a heat wave in Brisbane right now, so I thought you might like a nice, cool winter scene (like here in Canada at the moment) to help cool you down!  I hope you had a happy Christmas.
    Love, Cheryl
