Today is the first day of my solo travels north to share the oils and discover what people know about essential oils. I found it really hard to leave my little man this morning and this will be the longest I haven't been with him...but I am so excited to meet new people and to discover their stories...To cast out and feel my way, to go with my gut and follow my nose to wherever the trip will lead. It is freeing to be able to go with the flow again, as I did in my younger years, without having the drive of knowing I have another relying on me for daily needs, for food and shelter.
Though it is different to then in so many ways as now there is a deep and powerful pull to be with my son and to hold him in my arms, to smell his hair and see his cheeky smile...I am not sure how I will endure it but I know that it will bring us closer and that I am doing this for his future and to show him a life where following your dreams is powerful and real.
I decided after leaving NSW that I would just go where my nose took me. I knew that I didn't want to go the same old coast road, that I wanted to head in...and I found myself drawn to head towards Bli Bli...ending up just outside Nambour in a little camp site off the back of a macadamia farm run by a lovely couple Sharon and Grant.
I parked up and introduced myself to the other people who were there, a gorgeous older couple named Ted and Lynne and we chatted for about an hour about their family my family and the state of the world...This is the kind of connection I really enjoy, the type of conversation where you truly learn each other, and find out a bit about how the other thinks on things and what makes them tick..
What an interesting couple they are too! He an old Navy man and She the loyal and fiesty wife and mum of two beautiful now coming to mid thirties or forties children, a boy, who came out, much to the chagrin and now acceptance of his dad and a girl who teaches youngsters how to go out into the world and nurtures others through an empathic spirit and drive to give back.
We talked of adopted causes and charitable works different paths and inspirations and where they had led us all and illness, life choices and more...the real deal !
I could talk with Ted and Lynne for hours and I feel that we will again cross paths, it turns out they often come to Ballina, caravan in tow and we talked oils and I gave them some wild orange to uplift and revive them in the morning when they awake!!
Then Colin and Christine arrived back from a gay at the ginger farm and we all sat around the unlit campfire freezing our butts of and talking about how things have changed....Even for me in my forties I could relate to the conversation under the sound of the cockatoos setting up camp for the night and the talk of hens laying and the honey that we would get to taste tomorrow from Sharon the camp hosts' hive....This is it the life I crave...new people and a bank full of information and connection!
Christine told of a friend who had had cancer and had been taking frankincense under the tongue and they were pleasantly surprised with dramatic results she said.."The cancer clean disappeared" were her words...I sampled her some of mine as Lynne recounted the loss of a brother in law and a mother to cancer also ...it was getting cold...we headed to our respective homes for the night.
It seems that there is no end to possibility of connection it is all in the desire to know and understand another's experience...I feel I am really going to enjoy this next two weeks...and mis my boy..
