to bask in its own reflection in a window glass.

  23. Beautiful photos! When I watch the sunrise I always have this feeling of belonging-to the moment, to the earth,and to the light.

  24. Wonderful skies Arija...don't suppose it mean you have had any rain yet? I am still praying for you all!

    Arija, my sister didn't have any luck with the lady she was going to speak to about the loom...but the lady did say to contact the Spinners and Weavers Guild of Victoria (my sister says they would have a website) and they could surely tell you if there were anyone suitable...for such a gift.

    She also said that perhaps the local councils Nillumbik (which covers the Kinglake area)or the Yarra Ranges council (which covers Marysville), may be able to help...but then again, they could all be very busy people right at this moment!!?

    She was also going to pass your message to her daughter and her friend who both work for one of these councils just in case they hear of someone! (But they are going away soon, so may not be much help there)

    Do hope this is of some help to you!
