“In the Highlands - Quamby Bluff”
30x40cm Acrylic on a Cradled Wooden Panel
We have a shack up in the Central Highlands, and I’m always mesmerized by just how rugged and harsh the environment is, and yet there’s so much flora and fauna! It’s teeming with life, even in the most dire conditions, and I needed to portray that somehow. I would love to know what you think!

i didn’t realise i would be, but i am a sentimental mama 🌸
yesterday, before we went down to the little rivulet behind our house to play, rumi insisted on dressing himself. he has randomly selected clothes to wear before but selecting a full outfit and dressing himself, was a first
he picked this outfit. the same outfit he wore at our love party last november. at the time, these clothes were swimming on him so when he pulled them out i thought, perfect! they’ll still have heaps of room. but to my amazement, once he was dressed in the full outfit, i saw the arms were shorter and the pants a bit tighter and i realised...last november wasn’t a few months a year ago...last november was a year ago! a whole year has gone past and in that time so much growth has moved through him 🦋
proud that he had both selected his outfit and dressed himself, when he came out of his room he held his hands on his chest and asked... my beautiful mama?
i gasped and bit my lip.
you are more beautiful than i have words.
...he ran ahead, out the door toward the car singing yaaaaay! and i followed slowly, wiping sentimental tears from my cheeks...
he is growing.
of every day.
and it almost breaks my heart realising how stunningly beautiful that is to witness 🌼

just because you can feel it, it doesn’t mean you have to become a part of it
just because it is the story you’re being read, it doesn’t mean you have to keep reading
just because the world is swaying, it doesn’t mean you can’t stand steady
just because you said yes once, it doesn’t mean you have to say yes forever
just because someone offers you a box of pain, it doesn’t mean you have to heal them
you are responsible for yourself
you can heal when you choose
and you have full permission, always, to say ‘no, thank you’ and hand the box back...it may very well be, the most loving thing you have ever done
your healing power is sacred
don’t give it away
these are fields of gold dust for an empath ✨
