'Willowmavin' - the new Kilmore Region 'fire fund' series

"Who will tell whether one happy moment of love or the joy of breathing or walking on a bright morning and smelling the fresh air, is not worth all the suffering and effort which life implies." ~Erich Fromm



I've been really busy these past weeks, working hard on a new series of images. I've called it 'Willowmavin', and it was born, rather unexpectedly, out of the devastating bushfires we had here in Victoria last month.



100% of all profits from any artwork sales will be donated to the Valley Produce Wallan Fire Fund. These guys have been doing an amazing job of assisting their local area to get back on it's feet after what was a week from hell for many. So much loss. And so sad to witness.










The full series can be viewed in the 'Willowmavin' Gallery on my website. And more background to the series can be found on my Photo Blog.

Mark & Mack: Signs & Synchronicites & 444

It's the 2nd of March today. It's the time of year when I get excited, really excited - partly because it's Autumn and this for me personally is a most special time of year. From a spiritual and metaphysical perspective, significant things always seem to happen for me at this time of year. Especially in March. I love this month. And this one is significant, because I get to go to an Abraham Hicks workshop on the 24th - only found out a couple of weeks ago that Esther Hicks was going to be doing a workshop in Melbourne. Soooo excited about that.

But today also marks 4 months since my beloved little Mack transitioned, and it also happens to the day my brother, Mark, would have turned 44. I couldn't help but notice, yet again, the presence of the 'fours'. They are impossible to ignore. I've blogged about it before: here & here.

I've continued to get a very clear message from Mack that he is coming back to us (if you've read my previous post - linked to above - then you will know I'm talking about animal reincarnation). Not nearly so crazy as it sounds. For anyone wanting to explore this subject more, a good place to begin would be to check out the links I have listed on this blog under 'Talk to the Animals'. There are some wonderful communicators who are extremely talented and dedicated to their work. They have my utmost respect. Another person you might want to check out is Dr Brian Weiss (see the link to the left). Approach with an open mind. You don't have to believe anything just because someone else says it is so. But be curious enough at least to explore, and find out for yourself. Then make up your own mind.

I miss Mark and my beloved little canine buddy, Mack, so much. It's comforting to know that Mack is still communicating with me, still making his intention to return very clear. And when the time is right, I know very well, he will. I just wish that the rest of my family could know things as I do. It might not be nearly so hard on them as it has been. But it isn't something I can push. I don't really talk to them about what I do. They don't really understand. Not that I can blame them. I would probably quietly think me crazy too, if the situation were reversed.

On the 13 of February I got a late night phone call out of the blue, and was surprised to hear on the other end of the line, the voice of a woman with a strong accent. Thinking at first that it was a telemarketing company, I was ready to hang up when she went on to say that she was calling from Israel, and that she really loved my photography. She'd bought four images through a UK-based site that I had been selling through, and wanted to know if I would give her permission to purchase a fifth one - I'd canceled my agreement with this site in the meantime, so they were no longer available for purchase. There it was again - Israel (the Star of David), four images (from forty-four images that I had listed with this site), and 13th February - which just happened to be the 44th day of the year. I suspect it was one of those phone calls I was meant to get.

Numbers connect everything. They have their own language. That's certainly how I see the world, and have done for a long time. Everything is connected to everything else, through numbers. Somehow it all ties in together - Mark, Mack, the dates, the numbers. Signs and synchronicities. Impossible to ignore. Nothing is ever as it seems on the surface. And what we see and experience and know of life in our everyday circumstances, is far from all there is to know. And that is incredibly comforting. If only my family could come to know it too. Maybe then they could find the peace I wish for them.

Love & light

Esther & Abraham Hicks in Melbourne

I found out a couple of weeks ago that Esther Hicks is doing three workshops in Australia next month - and one of them happens to be in Melbourne. Just booked my ticket. Soooo excited! I started watching the Abraham Hicks video clips on Youtube this time a year ago, and I've watched many of them since. Of all the spiritual 'gurus' (for want of a better word), that I've followed and respected immensely over the years, Abraham Hicks is the one I resonate with the most deeply with. So, so looking forward to this event...

3 months, 3 days...

“Don’t grieve. Anything you lose comes round in another form.” ~Rumi

My beautiful boy, how I miss you. I feel your closeness, your soul, your gentle, loving energy all around me. I know you are still guiding my path. You make it so obvious. I see the signs - subtle and not - that you give me. Letting me know that you are still so very near. Thank you. It helps, enormously, to know that I have not lost you forever.

I cannot wait for you to be come back and rejoin our little family. I cannot wait to hold your precious being in my arms once again. And I know that I shall.
