In among our Blue Gum plantation

is one of the most serene places

I can think of.

In the middle of the paddock I would

shut down the vehicle I was driving

and just sit and listen to the

deafening sounds of silence.

A silence only broken by the breeze in the leaves,

birdsong and the occasional kangaroo or wallaby

as bounds away to perceived safety.


Driving through the temperate rainforests

near the Great Ocean Road

Is where this image was taken.


In 2017 I visited the

Western Front Battlefields

including Belgium’s

Toronto Avenue Cemetery…


…which had to be the most serene cemetery

on the Western Front.

Aalthough having made that assertion

all the cemeteries we visited had

an air of serenity about them



How ever many you have in your house

for Christmas 2021,

may we wish you all the blessings…

…a gathering of your clan may bring.

Merry Christmas

one and all!

And may your world have a

Happy and Safe New Year

  1. Beautiful thoughts and images Woolly. My husband and I spent some time on the Great Ocean Road, which we thought was magnificent. It was also where we saw our first Koala – quite a thrill for us! And you’re right, off of the beaten path it was absolute serenity. Thanks for the fond reminder.
