Well, come on in, October

 

writing dont shrink from your call its your job as a dreamer to support the world with you vision

In numerology

October is represented by “One”

This is a month of new beginnings, independence, initiation, and achievement.

Don’t waste it with frivolous activities or useless relationships.
Caring for YOU, yourself and your own independence should be your mantra.

Begin with as much of a clean slate as you possibly can.

You’ll be challenged with stepping into your individuality.
The more you can connect with the unique off-the- beaten path aspects of yourself, the more successful you’ll be.

Know that there may still be some failures, yet this month is designed to teach you some accelerated lessons in self-esteem, self-love and totally trusting yourself.

October is a month of new beginnings, independence, initiation, and achievement.

Your mantra should be:

“My way, or the highway”

Looking For Me

I’m the queen of chat,

it’s difficult for me to ever shut up, detach.

How to cut a long story short?

that is not easy for me, should i ought?

 

Words spellbinding, ethereal, evoke my vocation,

when i feel emotions, strong memories, sensations.

Born back in the good old United of K,

that was my character building, i’d say.

 

Since emigrating to Perth,

I have learned a lot more about life’s worth

and how much fun you can have,

when in the great outdoors, feeling happy and glad.

 

Travelled, too many holiday destinations to count,

photos, memories, treasured moments, abound.

Numerology, philosophical quotes, books, dreams,

all hold charms of poetic meanings for me.

 

So many happy memories when looking back, I’ve found,

I should like to write a book, to reflect, on happy days when I’m feeling down.

The Eagles, Landed

Footy Finals come in September each year

Our West Coast Eagles definitely each earned their rightful place here

Off on their flights to loud applause, mighty cheers

While dedicated fans waiting, patiently in WA, here.

 

I don’t have a clue how these Ozzie rules footy games play

All I know is that they caused an epic mass riot and wave

The excitement and joy of their connected team spirit

Made even me, want the Eagles team to win it!

 

Hubby took extra blood pressure tablets that day

Helping to keep his nerves calm, settled and in place

Mr grandson and I tried to have a quiet space

But oh, those loud screams that they … made!

 

Would the Melbourne Magpies win?

Touch and go, oh, yes? Oh no, hoping not, but what a din.

That is the bonding of sports when it is played

Even I became uplifted by the applause and euphoria that day

eagles best lou shaz kev

Great Family get togethers, hearing the roars and furore

Sitting patiently for the game, “go, go, go” they all implored

Their cheers and grunts were so hearty and loud

Feeling the exhilaration, the screams of the stadium crowds

 

Sensing nerves were jangling, tattered and torn

Right to the last minute, intently watching those scores.

Mr grandson and I could no longer bear the raucous at full blare

So he shouted out loudly, “Can you all please be quiet in there?”

eagles finn computer .jpg

So Mr grandson and I planned to make our great escape,

A little peace and quiet at the park we thought we should take.

eagles finn and girls at park .jpg

When we returned, tensions were still frazzling high in the air

OMG it was still too much for us both and all to bear!

 

Each sat, biting their nails, grimaces, sitting side by side

Holding each other’s hands, for most of that stressful time

Eyes on alert, riveted on to the MCG ground

Over in Melbourne, all optimistic, bellowing sounds

Eagles roar .jpg

YES! YES! YES!

Winning fists punched triumphantly upwards in the air

Go into that next room, hmmm, not sure, if I should dare?

Mass uproar, jubilation and celebrations

Oh boy, oh boy!!! the Eagles had a win, massive joy and elation!!

 

In the final moments of the game, I dared to venture in,

I had, had no doubt that the Eagles, had, had a mighty win

OMG and now those wild celebrations truly, will begin.

 

Feeling proud of our Royal Blue and Gold colours,

They’re bringing IT home at last, for their loyal followers.

Loud pitched yells and screams,

Oh WOW, what a champion team!

eagles bringing it home.jpg

Victoria Healing ~ 30.9.2018

The Eagles HAVE landed…

PREMIERS!

The club has won three AFL Premierships (1992, 1994 & 2006) and played in six AFL Grand Finals.

West Coast boasts a proud tradition of success which can be attributed to its many loyal members and corporate partners.

The club’s current logo features the head of a wedge-tailed eagle  The club’s current and former logos have all incorporated a stylised eagle’s head, always facing east (i.e. towards the right, where east appears on most maps) to represent the eagle eyeing off its prey in the eastern states.[55] :

The club’s official team song is “We’re the Eagles”, composed by Kevin Peek, a former member of the progressive rock band Sky

Sixty-five years, later they find,

HMAS Sydney shipwrecked, from back in that time;

November 1941…

“645” MEN

Had tragically lost their lives.

 

Exchanges of fire with Kormoran: a warship attack

Where, clearly, no correct signals were given at that…

 

With sympathy and all due respects, back in World War II

Deeply regretting, that we never knew

 

That once they were all lost

But now they are Found

 

Each brave man, has been taken into a count.

On this hauntingly, isolated and lonely, cliff path.

 

A reminder memorial of exchange of fire

 

The fight, the torpedoes, the blast

Full steam ahead, plummeting, sinking fast…

So sombrely, silently, acknowledging, remembering heroic men,

Here, I then took my pen…

 

No,

 

It’s not always fun and happy tales, when roaming new roads

Memories of times gone past will always unfold.

Where the desert meets the sea,

Sombrely

 

Laid to rest…

 

To each of our valiant Men,

God Bless

Lost is Found

"On 19 November 1941, a battle occurred between the Australian light cruiser HMAS Sydney and the German raider, the 
auxiliary cruiser HSK Kormoran. Based on the accounts of 
German survivors, Sydney closed to identify and was mortally
 damaged by hits from gunfire and a torpedo. 
Both ships sank, 80 perishing in Kormoran.

While there were NO SURVIVORS from SYDNEY’s complement
 of “645”

The absence of Australian survivors left many questions on the precise circumstances of the loss, which continues to arouse controversy" —

 

quobba station memorial plaque .jpg

HMAS Sydney II – Found. The wreck of the HMAS Sydney (II) was found by the Finding Sydney Foundation on 16th March 2008 approximately 207km (128 miles) from the west coast (Steep Point) of Western Australia at a depth of approximately 2,468 metres.

Relatives react

Royce Laycock was son of an engine stoker who worked on the ship and was only four when his father died. “It’s good news to know that they’ve found the ship, because you really didn’t realise or know what happened,” he said.

Lost in transit

quobba car lost in transit last

 

Meandering along, ohhh, So slowww…

Towing our little caravan… all packed and ready to rove.

 

Music volume, turned loudly up,

Listening to The Bee Gees

Butterfly feelings of excitement, we’ll never be rushed.

 

Engrossed with magical, tranquil, ancient scenery

This is the way that everyone “living”, should be

Stopping at another rest-point, taking a short break

Our furry babies, happy for more time, we should take.

quobba lost in transit do you know our way back from here

We share the driving,

Me from the passenger seat,

Hubby at the wheel

I find that this… is the better, steering deal.

 

Lost in transit, now which way should we go?

Looking for roads where, we don’t yet know.

 

Waves to our fellow travellers passing by

Nodding knowing glances, we all know why

All on our own road trip adventures galore

Hoping to meet again, when on our camps in this great outdoors.

 

Why not stop for a moment?

Wanting and needing to explore,

What is that signpost roadside, have we been there before?

Following red sandy dusty tracks to find out more

 

Lost in transit, oh, how difficult, this is to explain

As we prepare, a get up and go again.

You don’t need a lot of cash to live this style of life

Free and cheap camping would be my best advice.

The Aquarium Affects

quobba aquarium has anyone seen robinson crusoe?

‘Only Robinson Crusoe had everything done by Friday’

 

We found a world of relaxation at this Aquarium spa and health retreat

Blue skies, salty air, white sandy beach,

Everything desirable is so easily within reach.

quobba aquarium talking to the birds

How could any words, ever possibly describe

These hearty, feisty feelings of being really truly alive

These are the affects of the Aquarium, mind, body and spirit, submissive…

Reconciled.

 

Cancelled visits to the gym, beauty parlour and spa

This is completely free and I’d rate this health resort here, five golden dreamy stars.

Getting away from noisy shopping centres and dusty inanimate streets

Meeting other friendly campers, having a chat, a glass or two of wine, sharing tales and tasty nibblies to eat.

 

Running away from the office; escaping that tired TV and old couch,

Life is so much better, when you are exploring the outdoors,

Instead of mindlessly existing, trapped, restrained in a suburban lifeless house.

When out in the wild, only au natural and comfortable will do!

Marvels, I wander

 

Nine days spent enjoying seclusion, sight seeing, exploring

Point Quobba, you would find, is neither dreary nor boring.

 

Where to begin, where should we start?

Well here we are, at the spectacular Blowholes, where we had first parked our car.

 

Killer King Waves, powering up 20 metre jet stream fountains

From below deep sea caves up and over, craggy rock ledges all about them

Don’t step towards the edge, or you’ll be sucked deep down into the watery depths of the Indian ocean.

 

Many people have lost their lives at this furiously fearsome, stunning spot,

A natural, marvel, phenomenon, but risk your life, you must not!

You just never know just when those almighty surging sprouts will shoot up,

Volatile, random, back away from these cliffs, I implore you that you should and definitely must!

Deadly

quobba blowholes psst who going to tell dad cant fish.jpg

a stop by this coastline pulls you in, serene, yet rugged it can be deadly, with a dangerous swell that can turn into King Waves, capable of crashing over the top of the rock ledge. This coastline needs to be treated with caution and care – lives have been lost by unsuspecting souls here.

Evolver Social Movement

“You live like this, sheltered, in a delicate world, and you believe you are living.

Then you read a book… or you take a trip… and you discover that you are not living, that you are hibernating.

The symptoms of hibernating are easily detectable: first, restlessness. The second symptom (when hibernating becomes dangerous and might degenerate into death): absence of pleasure. That is all.

It appears like an innocuous illness.

Monotony, boredom, death

Millions live like this (or die like this) without knowing it.

They work in offices. They drive a car. They picnic with their families.

They raise children. And then some shock treatment takes place, a person, a book, a song, and it awakens them and saves them from death. Some never awaken.” ― Anaïs Nin

Where? is the ‘Point’

quobba done point zoonie lets make a run for it life on the run.jpg

“We’ll be off line for a while, our neighbours had freaked us out … someone had named their Wi-Fi, “FBI Surveillance” 

 

So we had secreted away to this distant, remote beachside town

Stumbling into shanty shacks, protruding up, all around

Fisherman of the sixties had built these lean-to sheds for their homes

Right next to the ocean, where, you imagine, forever, their ghostly spirits might wander and roam.

Wild and deserted, are these rare and valuable outback sights

So you may wonder what these folk did while nights turned into daylight.

 

Corroded truck wheels, old stringy fishing nets.

Rusty gasoline drums, there was so much, not to forget.

Living alongside this seashore as they all pleased,

These reminders back to when, I’d suppose, life would have been such a breeze.

 

A couple of fish, snaggers or a chop

Tossed on to an old tin Barbie would have made a wholesome meal for the lot.

 

Creepy and eerie, now many years have, slipped on by?

Was it just my imagination?

Or would apparitions of Phantom Fisher Zombies, come stumbling alongside

 

Beach combing these remote, lonely and forgotten sands

 

Seeking shelter,

 

Reclusively…

 

We all found a site at Point Quobba to park up our caravans.

better than material stuff, cash or giant pots of gold.

You can’t put a price, on these travel experiences,

new places to visit, carnal, sensory, adventurous, mysterious.

In Carnarvon, there were torrents of storms and rains,

our caravan nearly sank, but still, enjoyment never waned.

Looking back at our caravanning  adventures,

although, some recollections, may have had to be censored.

 

Circumnavigating, with our instincts and senses,

primal, ancient impulses are recalled and re-invented.

the Answer

may travel profile answer is travel what is the question caravan answer is travel what was the question.png

Back home again, although…

much too early, it seems

When we’ve spent the last three and a half months on a fun road trip, trekking away with our dreams.
Running up and away from winter in pursuit of the warmth, of the bright shiny sun
And we have found that, in this, we are not the only ones.

Freshwater, Quobba Point and Coronation Beach,
We had found ourselves…
Enjoying magnificent beaches, fishing and snorkelling in the seas.

Amazing sights that we saw on our way back up to Exmouth again
To catch up with our fellow nomad community of gypsy friends
On the roads you will meet so many happy folk
So then sometimes, you never ever want to go back home.

Travelling, is a refreshingly different way of life
When you head off sight seeing, you have the freedom to do just as you like.
Now, we’ve returned back from our last road trip
Stir crazy in suburbia
I could easily give this home imprisonment ‘confinement’ the ‘flick’

Many more happy memories from this holiday and more tales to tell
But you could appreciate this ode so much more
If YOU did it, as well
