Tiredness


I have just one more week until I’m on annual leave again (for two weeks). I am so looking forward to it and will use the time as wisely as I can – especially to rest, ensure correct sleep patterns, etc. I am so tired at the moment and need to discipline myself to ensure I have adequate sleep. I must tell myself, ‘sleep is my friend and is not a waste of time.’

Obituaries Australia


If you are into genealogy like me, a site like Obituaries Australia could be a great help. It is even a great site for those who may from time to time need to find out information about a deceased relative or friend. Obituaries Australia is an online database of obituaries published in various print media and is searchable in a variety of ways.

Borenore Caves


Borenore Caves ReserveThis photo was taken quite a few years ago at the entrance to Borenore Caves, near Orange, in the central west of New South Wales, Australia. I was able, with a friend, to follow the cave internally for some distance. We used torches and eventually made our way out through a side entrance.

 

Missing You Greatly


Relaxing beside the Gloucester River at Gloucester River Falls

It was two years ago today that my dear friend Rebecca died, far too young. This photo is of a special day we spent together in the Barrington Tops National Park (Gloucester Tops). I will always remember it, as I will always remember Rebecca. Thinking of you today and missing you all the more. I miss you Bec.

Facebook


Undoubtedly the majority of people who come across this posting will already be users of Facebook or at least have heard of Facebook. So why do I want to post a link to Facebook as today’s URL? That’s a very good question and I have a simple answer to it.

Over the years friends have come and friends have gone. In the time since I started to use Facebook, I have been able to re-establish contact with so many people that have been my friends over the years. Today, I have been able to reconnect with another friend from the past – so, this is the reason for posting Facebook as today’s URL. It is a great tool for maintaining friendships and for re-establishing friendships from the past.

A Friend’s Documentary


I have a friend who is interested in film making. The link below will take you to the video of her first documentary entitled ‘On the Banks of the Snowy River.’ It is a hypothetical reflection on what might have been, should the national capital of Australia have been located elsewhere.

MY DEAR FRIEND – I MISS YOU GREATLY


 

100_1682 I have missed a day’s photo along the way somewhere and so I have been posting for the day before for a couple of days now. So for today only I intend to post two photos, one for yesterday and one for today – but not only for that reason.

The other reason I want to post two photos today is because two people I have counted as important to me have died in the past two years and today I visited the grave/memorial of each of them.

100_1684 The first memorial I visited was that of my dearest and most important friend, Rebecca. My dear friend – I miss you greatly. It was a hard, hard thing to do today – to visit your memorial at Beresfield. I felt I was unable to say goodbye today and will need to visit again soon. The memorial park was packed with people because it was ‘Father’s Day’ here in Australia and I just found it too difficult to do with so many people about. I will come again soon, but I will also visit often.

I have never forgotten you and I never will. I remain forever your friend and I hold you dearly in my heart. I miss you so much and wish you were still here.

I also visited the grave of another good friend’s sister, someone who I regarded as a good friend in the past and someone I have always held dear – my friend Heidi.
