The last time....and the first time #expatlife

Chelsea Flower Show, photo here

As we pack up for boarding school in Australia, my youngest, Connor, plays a game with me.. "Mom, do you know, this will be the last time we..". He says it with a twinkle in his eye and big open smile that melts my heart. I laugh, falling prey to the tease and quickly quip something back, as I always do. We laugh, we jest...we stay positive.

Beauty.... shades of grey




Wookie Mayer

Whenever a friend mentions that she is thinking of "going natural" and letting her colour grow out..I am the first to say "embrace the grey"... "you should, really, it will look wonderful on you"..."the best decision you could make"... "you have the perfect skin tone for it"...and they do and it always look wonderful.

Down by the Saigon River...is where you will find me



Saigon River..amidst the water hyacinth and bougainvillea.

Down by the Saigon river, where the water hyacinth flows and pink bougainvillea gently cascade around you...it is where you will find me, in a pink stupor. I say pink because chances are I will have been walking a distance, red faced from the heat and will be in a trance..most likely because I am lost.  It is a common predicament for me, my children will agree. Ask them my response when we would set off in the car with directions in hand, quickly lost to the highways and byways..."Not to worry, getting lost is fun, we are going to have an adventure". Even better if we were walking..getting exercise and having an adventure...it doesn't get any better than that.

"Blogger Block" and the Dance of Life

Views to the Tasman Sea..from a beachouse.


It is that time of year, when I do "the introspective", the mindful dance of life. The dance where I put my head in the clouds, procrastinate and think about life... and my blog.
