River Camp

IMG_20160329_145421[1]The river flows green filled with blue-green algae
The benefit of low water and warm weather
Fertilizer and farming run off.
Easter came and went
more quietly than ever
Visitors kept away for fear of toxic water

A family of emus,
eight in number
wandered the bush
enjoying the lack of dust
lack of people lack of noise.
Kangaroos, deer, brumbies and boar all content

No swimming, no touching, no cleaning
It was a challenge
Focus on what is possible
Fishing in boats a definite yes!
Water tank filled and towed out on a trailer
Horses bought out, with hay

IMG_20160329_161209[1]So riding replaced the swimming for many
Proudly my anxious young man dived in to the riding
Each day he rode gaining confidence and skill
Chatting away, with his Aunty
Brushing the horse, hand feeding it carrot
Animals have a way into your heart

In town we visited to recharge,call his girlfriend
Walking the dog Gracie
Cuddling the kitten Dotty
Watching the two fight with teeth barred
The little kitten wanting to win
But not able handle the losses

The river that runs green
Brings much healing
The fire heating food
warming water, gathering people
Quiet and gentle the river runs
Gentle, serene and life filling with Possibility



About R Congues

Funny enough, this blog has become the expression of my hopes, dreams, love and experiences. It came about because of the situation I discovered I was in, and I am delighted to see it grow and heal into something different: I am a parent of two children, one who has experienced severe anxiety that became disabling in all aspects of their life. I am a teacher of Maths, Science and Religious Education with a Masters in Special Needs Education; I am a qualified Reiki master, with a love of art and creative experience. I am not a professional in the fields of psychology or medicine. (If you are interested in these perspectives there are many internet sites to use.) I am simply expressing my experience in my own unique way.
