Autumn in the High Country, Australia…

From my art studio…

Taking a stroll in the High Country, Australia, is a balm for the spirit. Fresh,  air, magnificent vistas, and rich autumnal colours every day. And crisp nights with skies so clear you feel you can touch the stars.

This is what we need…

This is what we need. Wise and inspiring words. My new Life mantra…


‘The plain fact is that the planet does not need more successful people. But it does desperately need more peacemakers, healers, restorers, storytellers, and lovers of every kind. It needs people who live well in their places. It needs people of moral courage willing to join the fight to make the world habitable and humane. And these qualities have little to do with success as we have defined it.’
