change your perspective
look up into the face of life
discover hidden treasures
We are creatures of habit and it does us good to see things from a different point of view.
This can be literal, as when I looked up into the face of this flower, or perhaps when you take a different route home.
We can also benefit from stepping outside our preconceptions, our habitual ways of thinking, and discovering the richness in other ideas and opinions.
This month began with the super moon, blue moon, blood moon. I stood outside at two in the morning and caught a glimpse of the full moon as clouds swept across its face. Disappointment surfaced and there was little point doing anything other than sleep. Dreams were full of sunsets and roses and strange red streamers hanging in doorways.
And the next day – a storm hit – ex-cyclone Fehi – and we were battered by winds over 110km an hour, and torrential rain. King tides add to the challenges. After weeks and weeks of dry hot weather, we needed rain, but this was too extreme.
This is a time of challenge and change, and I’m looking for the treasures.
