The old in the new

December 4th, 2011

Our first Christmas on the mountain. We went searching for a tree.
No tractor rides or talking cockies but lots of smiles all the same.

Watching & Flying

October 4th, 2011

Watching. Always watching. Taking it all in. He feels into it, feels around it, digests it.
Then he moves with it or away from it. One delightful grounded step at a time.

Flying. Always flying. Either physically or ethereally.
Sometimes when you fly, you crash and burn.
Often he blows with the wind.
But mostly, he flies.

Roadworks + Rope

October 4th, 2011

Roadworks + Rope = Endless Entertainment

This boys delight = My happy heart

live & local

5th July, 2011

Once upon a time I quite fancied the idea of being a band photographer.
Travel. Late nights. Endless parties. Sex. Drugs. Rock & roll.

Now, hrmm, this kinda says is all....

That said though, I'm always a sucker for live and local music.

So I said yes, forfeited my early morning cuppa, and shot this great folk band early Saturday morning.

New Settlement Road
Check them out here & here.

tiny secrets

1st May, 2011

The Autumn winds whisper. They whisper as they pass.
They tell their tiny secrets to the flowers and the grass...

There is much cause for contemplation, and gratefully time also.

I see spirals everywhere.


The answers are slowly revealing themselves....
We gather them together, piece by piece, golden treasures on our path.

We look forward with equal parts nervous anticipation & excited joy.

so much beauty

March 6th, 2011

‎"I have heard too much beauty to ever go back, he said
& in that moment, I knew there was no way the children of our world would fail."

15th March, 2011

It's moving all too quickly. The weeks and then the months pass by.
I forget to stop. I forget to play. I forget to cherish.
I do not want to miss a single moment of this.

And yet... I do.

Jasper Moon, you are the joy in my laughter, the healing in my heart, the warmth in my love.
I adore you. Endlessly. Mama x

(ps i also love hipstamatic)

A Peace Baby

February 14th, 2011

A Peace Baby. That was what the nurses called him.
Born 11.11.1972.

("A Peace sign, for Dadda" painted by Milo Jan 2011)

He's carried that label, and worn it and although he's probably hid from it at times, he has always owned it.

That Peace Baby grew into the family Peacemaker and then into the Peaceful man I fell in love with.
I cannot say that his sense of Peace was the first thing I fell for, but it was this sense of Peace which indeed allowed me to fall so deeply.

I am humbled and honoured to stand beside this man of Peace. And as our sons observe and learn and mimic the actions of their Dadda, I am overwhelmingly grateful that he is a man so worthy of imitation.

Blessed be the Peacemakers. xo

The tides have turned.
We all struggle at times with how four is.

In this moment, four is frustration

four is antagonising

four is negotiation

and four is not enough.
Of time, of patience, of sleep, of understanding.

What is four for you?
