The tracks we leave

‎"If you could only sense how important you are to the lives of those you meet; how important you can be to the people you may never even dream of. There is something of yourself that you leave at every meeting."  (Mister) Fred Rogers
Sharing a link with the reconnecting with nature party from Living the Good North Coast Life with photos from the beautiful wild places of northern NSW complete with wallaby tracks in the sand.  It was a blustery windy day and we found the wallaby around the corner resting in a sunny spot. 

And Sky Watch Friday where people from all over the world gather to share a photo of what they spy on their horizon, always entertaining to see what they have to share.  Linking as well to an ex-pat blog challenge.   Today's theme is the view from where I live.  Would love to say this in on my front door step.  It is the vision that many people have of life down under.  For those that know me as a little beach bunny entirely what they expect. Sadly life near the water is out of reach of most average folks. Instead we make do with visits as often as we can. 

Sharing an example of leaving 'tracks' on a current project I am painting on fabric.  Canvas is easy it is a firm surface that holds the paint well, silk is a whole other story. The tiny natural fibres love to bleed colour but that is what makes it a really fun and fluid process.

This little canvas has layers of misting and lifting and even a dash of salt to give it a bit of spark.  My on line workshops are listed on the My Creative Classroom website.

What a great quote! He said some pretty profound things that would make this a better world if all would "hear" them.

Great photo. I can't imagine seeing a wallaby in the wild! We have a wonderful Australian section at the Columbus Zoo & Aquarium in Ohio, one of my favorite places. You can walk through where the wallaby's live and it's wonderful. Their area is so large and natural.

Have a grand day! Blessings, Edie Marie

Thanks for continuing to participate in the link up. :)
I really enjoy the beach on blustery, winter days - it has such atmosphere. And it's amazing how many wallabies actually do live along that stretch of coast, not a bad place to live l guess !!

Pretty cool - I wouldn't have thought about them living near the beach. Guess lots of creatures enjoy the ocean view!

What a great quote by Mr. Rogers! So true, we all need to be aware of the impact we as people have on others & even places.

Hi, Mandy! The ocean view soothes my winter-sore eyes... thank you! We're in a freeze and knee-deep in snow here in southern Norway...bbbrrr... This beach scene makes me think of summer days to come...ah, yes... Not to late to wish you all the VERY BEST in 2014, is it? ;o)

I love Fred Rogers! He was such a simple but great man. The world needs more Fred Rogers, that's for sure. I am also a beach bunny having grown up not far from the New Jersey shore! Don't get to the shore, the beach, as often as I'd like. Which reminds me it's time for me to make another trip and very soon. Thanks for a great post.
