a bushwalk in the Blue Mountains
with Cathy and Old Man Crow
loved this fissure in the weathered stone
dry woodland on the ridge
tiny blue flowers of Wahlenbergia gracilis aka Australian bluebell
(PS this ID is an educated guess as there were frilly edges on the petals
Old Man Crow is dubious)
one day we will move to the mountains and go bushwalking every day!

we took the train up to the Blue Mountains for a bushwalk
such a magic day
Cathy and Old Man Crow investigating a mysterious pool
old sandstone stairs to Dante’s Glen
a reconnoiter for the dream
a fabulous Angophora costata
this magic rainbow arched right over the train on the way home
blessing the dream of moving up to the mountains in the not too faraway
the Full Moon in Sagittarus the Wayfinder
Sagittarius from the Zodiac Series Mo 1999
Magic Days!

“For many years, I have been moved by the blue at the far edge of what can be seen, that color of horizons, of remote mountain ranges, of anything far away. The color of that distance is the color of an emotion, the color of solitude and of desire, the color of there seen from here, the color of where you are not. And the color of where you can never go. For the blue is not in the place those miles away at the horizon, but in the atmospheric distance between you and the mountains.”
”Longing, “says the poet Robert Hass “because desire is full of endless distances,” Blue is the color of longing for the distances you never arrive in, for the blue world.”
Rebecca Solnit “A Field Guide to Getting Lost”
One of the wonderful things about living in the middle of Sydney is the train ride up into the Blue Mountains to visit the blue of longing in the west and it’s just a quick bus trip to the wide blue of the ocean to the east!
