"Be soft in your practice
Let your method be like a fine silvery stream
not a raging waterfall
Let it take you
It will go its own way
meandering here, trickling there
It will find the grooves, the cracks
Just follow it
It will take you"

It's raining outside....big time. Not good for when I get home to La Chateau Tento. The weather has been pretty bad for the last week or so. Actually since Tornado Take-me-out there hasn't been much of a break. Hardly any sun. I'm losin' my tan which was reeeeally cooool. Anyway I'm lucky I've got that skin type where I just go for a run with my shirt off and next day I'm brown as a berry. Olive skin complexion sorta thingie.
La Chateau is very sad, probably depressed even. You would be too if the wind and rain were gale force and just went on day after day. I have rigged it so that it is staying reasonably dry considering. But I am on a slope and it's getting worse with each day. If the rain doesn't stop I think I'll wash into the ocean. Then I'll need a paddle or a little outboard motor or something. Hmmmmm...
Anyway a couple of the support rods on the tent have snapped in the winds and caused a bit of grief. I start slipping down while I am asleep and when I touch the side of the tent the water gets in causing wet blankies and sheets, pillows and stuff. But it's been worse. Bush bangers like me get used to it. Put it down to EXPERIENCE and it's all good for the STORY.
I'm sitting writing BLOG thingie and listening to Enya's greatest hits. Now that's beautiful relaxing music and she's a gorgeous Catholic Irish girl. Got my heritage has ENYA. My mum was Ruby Mary Kathleen Kelly and her mum Brigitte Ingrid Kelly. Very, veeeery Irish and very veeeery Catholic. Hmmmm.... Hope I can sing like her. Her hit 'Only Time' is on right now. Such a haunting but inspiring ballad and as you know I am right into anything TIME because we all have a lack of it!
My head is full of emotion at the moment. There are various reasons for that but as I take each step I am starting to realize that this IS going to happen. I always had the vision and the belief but when little freeze frames of 'REALITY' begin to hit you right between the eyes, it is a strange feeling to try and deal with. It sorta takes my breath away when 'stuff' on my Journey through the STEPS begins to MANIFEST, that is, the VISION becomes a reality. Life is a very fuuuunneeee piece of TIME. We all have DREAMS of some sort but most of the time we give them a nice peaceful smile, a hopeful thought, and then move on with our busy lives. It makes those moments of manifestation of a part or parts of your dreams VERY VERY PRECIOUS.
In fact it's a little slice of heaven.........
