‘Rain Coming’ ©️ by Jake Journeyman 14/4/17

Today I wandered down the coastline at low tide from Shelly Beach to Bateau Bay, and then on up to Crackneck Lookout. The rock pools at Bateau Bay are mesmerising and constantly changing.

Tide Pool

A tide pool is a treasure chest

a pocket book

a clear blue nest

of mussels breathing water-air

sea stars gripping onto stone

floating feather seaweed-hair

a decorator grab, alone.

This ocean postcard mystery

puddled in these rocks for me

knows every secret of the sea.

I discovered this huge rocky dragon or lizard formation today while walking the coastline from Budgewoi to The Entrance on the northern end of The Central Coast, NSW. A spectacular piece of Australian coastline! JJ  11/4/17. #dragons #centralcoast #nsw #photography

 

“No, I would not want to live in a world without dragons, as I would not want to live in a world without magic, for that is a world without mystery, and that is a world without faith.”

‘Little Bird’ © Jake Journeyman 8/4/17

In today’s wander I had perfect autumn weather. Tuggerah Lake brims with wildlife and today was spectacular. In a secluded cove on the lake’s edge about 1 klm past the bridge at North Entrance I spotted these 2 guys eyeing each other off and knew instantly it was my shot of the day. #jakejourneyman #bushman #minimalist #wanderer naturalist #snakehandler #snakerelocator #littlebird #pelican #tuggerahlake #centralcoast #samsung #s7 #gopro

‘Little Bird’

Once I saw a little bird

Come hop, hop, hop

I cried, “Little bird,

Will you stop, stop, stop?”

I began paddling over

To say, “How do you do?”

But he shook his little tail

And away he flew.

On my 5 hour bushwalk to nowhere in particular today I spotted these guys doing exactly what I was doing – enjoying the glorious sun after so much rain.  Cheers, JJ

 

Spring Morning

by A. A. Milne

 

Where am I going? I don’t quite know.
Down to the stream where the king-cups grow,
Up on the hill where the pine-trees blow
Anywhere, anywhere. I don’t know.
Where am I going? The clouds sail by,
Little ones, baby ones, over the sky.
Where am I going? The shadows pass,
Little ones, baby ones, over the grass.
If you were a cloud, and sailed up there,
You’d sail on water as blue as air,
And you’d see me here in the fields and say:
“Doesn’t the sky look green today?”
Where am I going? The high rooks call:
“It’s awful fun to be born at all.”
Where am I going? The ring-doves coo:
“We do have beautiful things to do.”
If you were a bird, and lived on high,
You’d lean on the wind when the wind came by,
You’d say to the wind when it took you away:
“That’s where I wanted to go today!”
Where am I going? I don’t quite know.
What does it matter where people go?
Down to the wood where the blue-bells grow
Anywhere, anywhere. I don’t know.

A. A. (Alan Alexander) Milne (1882-1956), famous for his stories about Winnie thePooh and Christopher Robin, Tigger, Piglet and the rest, was a soldier in the Great War from 1915 to 1919 -- including the Battle of the Somme. 

Milne's poem "From a Full Heart" was included in The Sunny Side (1921), and prophesies his post-war retiring action from such woods as Delville, High, Mametz, and Trones, to Pooh's "The Hundred Acre Wood." 

Milne died in England in 1956

“The River”

Excerpt from ‘Siddhartha’  by Hermann Hess

“Have you also learned that secret from the river;

that there is no such thing as time?”

That the river is everywhere at the same time,

at the source and at the mouth,

at the waterfall, at the ferry,

at the current, in the ocean and in the mountains,

everywhere

and that the present only exists for it,

not the shadow of the past

nor the shadow of the future.”

I wandered for over 7 hours around Wamberal Lagoon foreshores and paths today. Time flew, there is so much to photograph. I’d have liked to stay longer but night and rain were upon me before I knew it. In my journey I helped a sea snake stuck in thick mud get back to the ocean, set free an eel caught in a mangle of hooks and lines, spotted one of the biggest cuttlefish shells I’ve ever seen, and so much more. A great day!  JJ

 

‘Sacred Trees’

by Morgan La Fey

“When walking through a warm and lush forest setting one’s thoughts can easily take flights of fancy. It is not difficult to shed the layers of modern life and find one’s more subtle or primitive beginnings. Somewhere from deep within the spiritand majesty of each single tree steps forth and at once one can find themselves transported to a world of shadow and shade.”
