Writing with a Mountains View (yes, plural).

While settling into my new home, I’ve made time for writing – naturally, that’s what I do – which (in part) also means admiring the wonderful new view from my office window.

We’re in a flat spot here, a smallish area that isn’t sideways, which means we’re far enough back to view a small mountain to one side and a whole mountain range to another. Behind us, of course, are hills and other ranges, but my office looks to the front and as dawn rises I can see clouds covering the mountaintops or mist rising in the valley.

It’s all very inspirational.

Oh yes, the actual writing part… Yes, that is happening and going well. While a beautiful view can be a distraction, it’s also incredibly uplifting. I cannot help but be grateful here and appreciate all that I have, it’s a nice place to have landed.


Yes, just a short post. Tomorrow I’ll tell you more about the wildlife here – Tiger snakes.

Cheers all! 😀

          I know Darwin! I spent 15 years up there! Loved it! All the “wilderness pictures” and adventures I listed under the “wilderness living” tag (dropdown menu at the top) came from when we lived wild at Lake Bennett (250 acres, no house for 5 years). We lived in a hole in the ground and there were pythons under the bed!!!

          The Top End will always be a special place to me. It’s where I got a love for the wild places. Hard to believe but that was 20 years ago. I haven’t been able to live in a city since, don’t even like to visit. And that’s why we found this place (in Victoria) in isolation.

          It is a beautiful place, it is filling up though. Sounds like a great place to live in the middle of nowhere. You must miss being here.
          I have been here for 4 years now and I just love it. The friendly people the crazy weather and the wide open spaces.
          You should come up for a visit.

          Crazy weather is right! Totally upside down. Loved the Wet season, the rain and the storms. Learned not to sleep with a blanket over me but still got prickly heat. Yes I do miss it at times (the Top End, that is, not the prickly heat). They say you either love it up there or hate it. Sounds like you and I both love it. 😀

          One day I’ll visit again.
