With one giant step from Maleny to Lausanne on the Lake Geneva shoreline, my view of life was changed forever.
Most of the important lessons that I learned came via my asylum seeker family at EVAM Crissier.
Now, sitting back in the land of plenty, it is time to put into practice what I have learned.
Maroochy River at Sunset
The view of the Pacific Ocean from where we live
Today the sun finally came out and painted the world around us in crystals of green and blue. After another day of redecorating our home, I took a leisurely run through the rural landscape that surrounds where we live then Jo and I headed down to the coast for a walk along the Maroochy River at sunset.
The Maroochy River
On perfect afternoons like today, the Maroochy is such a peaceful place to watch the sun hide behind the Blackall Range. People walking and jogging the pathways. Trees teeming with Rainbow Lorikeets. Boats on the water. And pelicans fishing in the afterglow of winter's demonstration, leaving me rejuvenated to pick up a paintbrush again tomorrow.
