A cure for bad day ache


A cure for bad day ache
1. Take a walk on dusk down by the creek
2. Sit for a while
3. Listen to a dog bark, splashing in the shallows.
4. Watch a ghost white Egret stalk fish
5. Observe a Pied Oystercatcher pipe loudly as it takes flight.
6. Collect some nearby stones.
7. Throw the stones into the still waters, coloured and patterned by tide.
8. See ripples spread out, a bronze golden light surfing each crest.
9. Half close your eyes as the sunset red fades away to night
10. Let all the unwanted aches of the departing day drain away
11. Dream of all the things still worth living for just a short sleep away
12. Sunrise, golden light, long morning shadows
13. the Pied Butcherbird’s rich melodious call,
14. a single sun orchid opening in violet.
15. Feel thankful you are alive and experiencing this.
16. Dream with longings for peace and the dawn of a better day






  1. Beautiful! 🙂 🙂 I walked back from our marina as the sun was setting yesterday, Paul, and the dazzling display in the sky kept me enthralled all the way home. Merry Christmas to you!

  2. Yep, feel thankful you are alive and experiencing this! Happy Christmas, Paul
