Layout: Canberra Field Trip

A wednesdayWISDOM quote inspired layout, this page came about after reflecting upon Joyce Meyer’s words: “A #2 pencil and a dream can take you anywhere.”

What immediately sprang to mind was the epic journey that my sons and I were blessed to experience travelling around Australia. The journey was born from the desire to visit the Australian capital to learn in-situ about the political and government systems here in Australia as part of our home education program.

Seriously, this is exactly how it started!

With a vision, my notebook and this half-worn-down and slightly chewed stub of a pencil.

The dream that I had of taking my sons to visit Canberra was so strong that it became irresistible, and whilst we didn’t exactly fly to Canberra and stay in a hotel in luxurious comfort … what we did experience was so much more fulfilling.

We drove 30,000+km overland seeing sites, meeting people, experiencing life and doing things that are missed when travelling by air.

I have said it before and I will say it again: as an artist, I make special efforts to challenge myself every step of my journey in life. Sometimes I fail dismally; that is part of the human condition.

I learn though; I learn deeply.

And then I try again tomorrow to do better than I did yesterday.

On the roadtrip I grew spiritually way beyond my wildest dreams; I am still growing from that journey, struggling to find grace in my everyday.

Our roadtrip was definitely a success in its own right. I now wonder how much of the desire to do the figure-8 lap was born from my own very deep need to trigger a deep change in my life.

I have heard some people refer to Perth as “very conscious”. I have learned that being “conscious” does not give license to being consciousless or engaging in unconscionable behaviour at any level; tolerating such behaviour in others is even worse. THAT is exactly where the grace and the light is striving to transform my life.
