Hello, Greetings, G’day, Mālō e lelei’, Bonjour!

There are so many ways we can say hello and connect with each other aren’t there?

During this past fortnight I have met  and conversed with many people.

A stranger on the waterfront and a good morning greeting turned into a delightful half hour and a tentative friendship has begun to grow. The power of the internet gives us the ability to connect with, nurture and grow friendships. 

Of course we all put on our brave face and try to show our best out there in our family, neighborhood or on the world wide web.

Is this what we should be doing?

Or should we admit our vulnerability, be honest in our responses and see where that can lead?

Being ourselves with all our sticky thoughts and fragilities takes courage.


One Challenge at a Time

When a seven storey development of inappropriate and uninspiring design for hundreds of units was announced for across the road from me I was horrified.

So were many other people. I became part of a residents group who asked for planning answers.

This week the potential development has been halted.

I will hear the birds, enjoy the sea breeze and continue to enjoy the charm of Deception Bay for a little longer.

My heart sings!
