What a month, two glimpses of humanity, one that everyone has an equal right to bind themselves in love and a small window of choice in Victoria for those whose life’s journey is run. On a more selfish note it was also, my 60th birthday.
To celebrate and I mean celebrate, my family and I went to Noosa. No depression for me, just a great overwhelming feeling that 60 is my time to shine. Arrived in the rain then in the twinkle of an eye out came the sub tropical sun.
Journeyed to Rainbow beach (very fitting don’t you think) and there it was, golden sand, crystal clear water and you guessed it every shade of Ultra and Aquamarine. The Australian summer in all its glory, simply an overload of visual wonder. As I stood at the sea edge, the breeze blew the last tried threads of 50 clean away.
Did not go swimming at the beach. This is migratory whale time on this coast and to be honest, I feared setting of the Whale Strand Surf Rescue Team. Note to self: remember to book dietitian!!!!
Instead I just soaked the colour into my soul. As an imported Aussie I can say with my hand on heart this is indeed the lucky country. Bring out all the blues, the green blues the turquoise, the deep aqua, the pool party, summer time, even storm skies, just go with the flow of summer at its very best. Plus with Coloufied paint so safe, friendly to humans and the world, you can create the mood with a completely clear conscience.
Go on, live a little.
