Easter in Australia

By Thebangtoddowenwaldorf @BangLiving

Easter in Australia

“We’ll take an early day on Friday” was the first thought of the day.  I placed my feet on the floor.  Sitting on the edge of the bed I lowered my head to my knees and placed my fingers on the floor.  With my face staring at the carpet below I began pushing down with the palm of my hand.  I could feel my spine extending from its tightness.  Next was exercise and then breakfast.  The familiar sound of hard squares of wheat clattered against the bowl.  I love wheat biscuits.  It is the first breakfast that I had in Australia and they exude an aroma of nostalgia.  I wonder if I will be able to find them back home?  I’ll focus on that when the time comes.  For now I’ll eat them every chance I can get.  Just in case. 

I spent several hours out on the slope near the creek Friday.  The intensive vine clearing part of the work had been wrapped up the day prior.  Today I was clearing an area of weeds and planting several of the rain forest plants that were dropped off earlier this week.  “One meter a part” I reminded myself.  Later I met Linda.  I was joining her and her friends for an Easter lunch.  One of many celebratory Easter lunches of the weekend.  I was excited about this.
