A bird following its instinct travels through life, flying where it needs to be. Drifting over mountains, soaring through valleys, climbing towards the sun, unafraid to make the big decisions, perhaps not making them – just being where it needs to be.
Decisions - based on feelings, instinct, practicalities, emotions, finanacial ... reasons, but what ultimately makes us decide to take action?
And so I am flying back to my homeland to start a new chapter in my life. I am returning and yet not returning. I am going home, but going someplace completely new. I have been away for more than 20 years and I have changed. I was young when I flew away, a single pair of wings against the sky. Now I return with other wings around me – my family, my children flying too as we all go to start a new adventure over some distant mountain.
And so as our home descends into the chaos of packing, and our possesions are loaded onto a container to float across the Tasman Sea to New Zealand, we will be here for just one more week before we board the plane that will fly us over those mountains and into our new life.
Wishing everyone a wonderful inspiring, creative 2013! Thank you for being here, following what I create and being part of this journey with me, I'm so grateful for all of you.
