Hola from holidaying

by Leonie Dawson on December 26, 2005

mango sorbet melting on the beach
becoming enchanted by “Mists of Avalon”
sisters and brothers and mothers and fathers and many more
handgliding down into a green valley
riding a golf buggy around a tropical island
vision quests with animal healing
three soaring groups of ducks circling over my head
a family of hawks in a strangler fig
and that yellow belly black snake who was just as afraid of me
hot noodles when it is way too hot to eat
my favourite store in the whole wide world – the sanctuary – and my favourite store owners in the whole wide world.
mustering cattle on my old chestnut mare jeremiah
dirty feet and the requisite thongs
my lover and me.

deepest blessings of the season to you.
no matter what season you are in.


Internet Sale

by Leonie Dawson on December 19, 2005

Wanting to start the new year with a fresh perspective and a luminous avatar for joy?
I’ve decided to have an Internet sale on some works ready to spread their wings out into the world. All works are on canvasses, and are ready to hang on the wall. The edges of the panel have been painted, so this piece can hang straight on the wall or on a small stand without being framed.

If you think one of these babies is the perfect Christmassy present for a beloved, I can do you up a personal gift card to give to them to let them know some magic is coming their way.

Please email me – [email protected] if you are interested in any of the pieces. I accept bank account deposits (from Australians), credit card transactions from all over the world through, money orders or Western Union money transfers. I will also accept book swaps for the Angels Surround Us striped artwork and the four seperate pieces of The Universe is Conspiring to shower you with blessings. Your piece will be mailed off in the new year, along with its own personal hand written blessings card.

If you see the one you like has already been sold, don’t be sad, be GLAD! hee hee hee… If one takes your heart ~ let me know and I can create another one for you as a commission, and use your favourite colours.

In the meantime, I’m off on holidays, to the islands and the ocean and my family.

I want to thank each of you for this year. It has been magical beyond my wildest expectations. I am so grateful for your energies, your presence, your comments, emails and support.

Deep blessings to you in your festive seasons,


dream BIG
and drink in the joy.

Day in dot points

by Leonie Dawson on December 18, 2005

* Talk to the amazing Donna this morning for the first time. She is energy aware and throaty and divine and bolstered me to dream BIG.

* I “drop by” the shops to get some more canvasses. I didn’t realise the Christmas shoppers would be out in their hordes on Sundays. Makes me really, really glad we are having a love*filled and present*less Christmas this year.

* Driving, I sing to U2’s One, and really HEAR it for the first time.

“We’re one
But we’re not the same

We get to carry each other

Carry each other…

Love is a temple
Love a higher law

Love is a temple

Love the higher law

One love
One blood
One life

You got to do what you should

One life
With each other



One life
But we’re not the same

We get to carry each other

Carry each other



* Our team BBQ this afternoon out by the river. Mike and I decide to work off our four steaks and two vegetarian sausages (respectively) by climbing a mountain. It was good to be out there again, walking in the alpine country. We met a caterpillar friend and decided half way up that following the contour trail was too dull for us go-getters, and bush-bashed our way to the top. We felt like CHAMPIONS up there.

* We walked our way to the other side of the mountain, and looked out to a gorgeous view of Cotter Dam. So worth the scratches, just to see the place where the valleys, lakes and mountains reached to kiss the sky.

* We stumbled our way down. I have scratched hands and a smile on my face.
Somedays it is those serendipitous adventures, those ones that just HAPPEN, that are the best of all. It gave me faith that I could do just as I pleased. And if that means not following the trail, then I will have a damn good time of it.

Or when.
You can decide how you’re going to live now.”
