TUESDAY MORNING – SETTLING IN

DO NOT DO ANYTHING ABOUT ANYTHING IMPORTANT OR URGENT UNTIL YOU HAVE DONE A MEETING, LYNNE.

Not cancelling the internet or getting a cleaner or working out the mobile phone or paying rent on the shack. NOTHING till after a meeting.

DO NOT FREAK OUT ABOUT THE LOST OR MISPLACED KEYS OR THE BATTERY RECHARGER.

MEETING FIRST. MEETING FIRST. MEETING FIRST.

THE CREEK AT THE BOTTOM OF OUR GARDEN

ROBERT GRAY – A DAY AT BELLINGEN

A Day at Bellingen

I come rowing back on the mauve creek, and there’s a

daylight moon

among the shabby trees,

above the scratchy swamp oaks

and through the wrecked houses of the paperbarks;

a half moon

drifting up beside me like a jelly fish.

Now the reflected water becomes, momentarily, white—

magnesium burning.

My oars

have paused, held in their hailing

stance—

are melting;

and the long water is a dove-grey rippled sand.

A dark bird hurries

low in a straight line silently overhead.

The navy-blue air, with faint underlighting;

Has gauze veil hung up within it, or a moist fresh

Smoke.

I land in the bottom of an empty paddock,

at a dark palisade

of saplings…

(Gray 1998, 126)

Time for Joy – Book – Quote

Today I am developing a world of peace for myself, both inside and out.

Today I know I am always only one breath away from peace, one prayer away from serenity.
