Pea Soup..

“Whatever it is that pulls the pin, that hurls you past the boundaries of your own life into a brief and total beauty, it is enough. Completely.”......( Jeanette Winterson).
photos are from (almost) the most southern part of Victoria, Australia...Warrnambool, Port Fairy region. So beautiful.
This scenery pic is an old dormant (I hope!) volcano area...Tower Hill, near Warrnambool, normally it's filled with little lakes, not a drop of water to be seen....very dry for this area too.
The whole 100% state of Victoria has been declared a drought zone, 90-something percent for South Australia....and different degrees for other states, yet some parts of Queensland have not long had floods!
"A land of drought and flooding rains"....

"Let the beauty we love be what we do."....Rumi.

"Oh, my ways are strange ways and new ways and old ways, And deep ways and steep ways and high ways and low, I'm at home and at ease on a track that I know not, And restless and lost on a road that I know"......( Henry Lawson).

"Even if you slipped beneath the waves, the adhan may still reach you.".... (Abdal Hakim Murad)

Port Fairy Wharf, where they make the best fish and chips and catch crayfish out on their fishing boats.

"Only from the heart can you touch the sky."....Rumi.

Pea Soup is the name given to the South Beach at Port Fairy, there is another beach which is mainly for surfing, but at the south (Pea Soup) you can snorkell around the rocks and chase crabs, fish and little stingrays.

"I am one of the people who love the why of things.." (Catherine the Great).
This guy was just at the traffic lights, I was talking to him, he wants a bigger car :)

Amor est vitae essentia...Love is the essence of life...Robert B MacKay.

"Besides the noble art of getting things done, there is the noble art of leaving things undone. The wisdom of life consists in the elimination of non essentials. Lin Yu Tang.

There is a thinking stuff from which all things are made, and which, in its original state, permeates, penetrates and fills the interspace of the universe.
A thought, in this substance produces the thing that is imaged by the thought.
Man can form things in his thought, and, by impressing his thought upon formless substance, can cause the thing he thinks about to be created. I think this is Wallace D Wattles.

Purpose Ease and Flow...."When you are on a purpose -life will be easy and the opportunities and resources you need to be fulfilled will present themselves, then it is just up to you to act."

I thought this was from William James, it isn't, and I haven't found where I've scribbled this down from. I think it might be W D Wattles too, come to think of it.
So much happening.
