Imagining: The eddying stream

The clouds drifted apart, leaving holes in which the sun could filter through and catch the dewdrops carefully stationed on the tips of the leaves of the amphitheater above my angelic head.
Wandering down a well-worn path, I can hear the trickling of a stream of Eden beside me, it whispers in a gurgling, foreign language that only the water sprites can understand. This, in essence, comforts me and brings life to the very depths of my soul.
I realize how flood-ridden my surroundings are, and wonder whether I am the first of my kind to wonder along this path. I think of whether, many moons past, a fairy, a goblin or some dinosaur-like creature frolicked along the same path I did.
A roughly attired fallen tree sits stubbornly in my path, he has welcomed the comfort of life from those mushrooms that have now taken residence in his dying limbs. Sitting atop a sturdy branch is a mythical cat, who looks at me carefully. It mews studiously as I carefully approach it, however, once I am a meter from it's mystical body, it elopes into the bushes without every saying a word regarding my presence.

What are your imaginings?

Why I hate media

Firstly, you know how much I love the old-fashioned way of life.
Life was simple, slow-paced, not many people were expecting much of you.
If you did something wrong, the whole world didn't have to know.
Celebrities weren't what they are today; they were famous for doing good, and for putting effort into their career. Children were safe, adults were safe, and the world seemed like a safer, happier place to be.

The fact is, now we know too much. We know about what is out above this earth.
We know what we have done to this earth. We have extrapolated data into the future, just so that we can "feel better" about what's to come. I'm not so sure. I think we are all too unstable to just believe in ourselves, others and the way this world works.

I wish I could go back in time where women wore sensible clothing, cared only about their children and were courted respectfully. If only we could get back that way of life, the way that people respected themselves. The way they would not wreck their lives at the age of fifteen with bodily harm. The way children were not violent, adults were not violent and the way that love could be everlasting.

If only...

  4. The strong morning sun (yes, that's everywhere in Australian but I still sometimes don't like it)
  5. The hot afternoons

The best thing about Brisbane

The best thing about Brisbane is how amazingly community-oriented we are, especially after the floods. It's amazing, there were parts of Brisbane I had not seen and people I had not known after this event. We have pulled together strongly and are now a better community because of it.
I also love:

  • our trees!
  • the beautiful winters - not too cold!
  • the many different shops there are to shop in
  • the great schools and universities you can go to
  • the spirit of all the people here!
  • the amazing art gallery I have on my doorstep (not literally haha maybe 15 minutes away?)



Oh, and there is a great giveaway over on miseducated! Head over!!!
