LOVEview…. GOOD Shepherd

The peak in view is called Manjal Dimbi by the Kuku Yalanji.  Roughly translated the words mean mountain holding back. According to the Aboriginal dreamtime stories, the large humanoid rock represents Kubirri, who came to the aid of the Kuku Yalanji when they were persecuted by the evil spirit  Worrumbu.  Kubirri holds back the evil spirit, who is now confined to The Bluff above Mossman River, Manjal Dimbi has been anglicised to “Mt. Demi” and Kubirri is known as the “Good Shepherd”.

Mapped Out

Even when you think you have your life all mapped out, things happen that shape your destiny in ways you might never have imagined.

“Every time you are tempted to react in the same old way, ask if you want to be a prisoner of the past or a pioneer of the future.”
– Deepak Chopra

drunk on the moon

He’s still the keeper of my flame

The speaker of my secret name

The guiding hand, the history

The heart, the soul, the willow tree

The things we never can regain

You close around me like the night

and set fidelity to flight

The fire burns, the tender touch

The hollow words that mean so much

And feed this restless appetite

I lost my head

I said things I’ll come to regret

When I was drunk on the moon

You seemed so sure

Turning the key to my door

When I was drunk on the moon

Drove past your place again today

A little virtue slipped away

The wheels they turn, the old routines

You ring the changes unforeseen

And sow the seeds of disarray

I lost my head

I said things I’ll come to regret

When I was drunk on the moon

You seemed so sure

Turning the key to my door

When I was drunk on the moon

LOVEview on the edge

daisy flower symbolic meaning is “childhood, innocence and purity” so the everlasting daisy would mean holding onto all of these qualities for all your life – forever.
