Bounce, bounce, bounce.

Story of my life right now. I’m learning to live a different life, on a different timetable. As a photographer I understand about the weather, and light, and the necessity to be in the right place at the right time. Light is not an issue here – we make our own. All else remains the same. Except when it rains. Then we stop. So, days are long, as long as the sun and moon shine bright. And all that I want to do outside of a tractor is dependent on the weather everyone else wishes away. So while you’re all wishing for hot sunny days in the lead up to Christmas, I’m kinda hoping that there’ll be enough rain in there that I can make some semblance of celebration of this time of year.

There are many life lessons to be learnt bouncing along, and around, the paddocks day after day in my tractor. But they’ll have to wait to be shared in another post. The sun is shining, and I hear the rest of the team returning to head off to the next job. One of the lessons I’ve learnt is to work quickly, separate myself from the pack. That’s how I make time for myself.


Merry Christmas everyone! May your harvests in New Year be bountiful.
Love to you all.
