The healing place …

Along a dusty road, past many twists and turns, there is a place with no phones.

And no computers.

Some thought they were a little crazy to buy it.

But then they visited.

And they too fell under its spell …

What there is – in great supply – is time, too rare a commodity thesedays.


Three little huts, built with love – and this past weekend filled with friends – cling to a hidden hillside and look down the barrel of the Clyde.


It really is a piece of paradise.

A healing place for a family that had been to hell and back. In the process of buying it, someone tried to gazump them, but the elderly owner said no, this family needs this place.


He must have been a wise old soul.

I would cue the frogs if I could and lend you the slap of oars on water, but all I can offer is some fading light this evening. More to come, I promise…

You just need to be a little bit patient with me 😉

      Hi Marg…haven’t looked at your Blog since May…my darling Joe lost his battle to stay with us in June…loved, cared for, safe till the last breaths…at home. To find a healing for me is the plan now…I will find a way forward, I have no real choice and he wanted me to be whole. Love your Clyde experience, the little things are so pure and true and so often not even seen. Breathe, breathe.

        Dear Bev,
        So very sorry to hear about Joe but what a beautiful farewell you’ve given him. You’ll find a way forward I’m sure but yes, be kind to yourself for now and take pleasure in the little things. Our friends have the most verdant garden – flowers and vegetables and fruit trees – and it was so beautiful just to be in it, if only for a little while. What a beautiful spring it’s been. Simple pleasures, slow breaths and little steps xo
