This is my 500th post in Blue Mountains Journal! I began in early 2007 when I was retrenched so for some months had the luxury of time to go walking daily. It kindled a passion through which I've discovered so much -- about the mountains, about the native plants and birds, about poetry, about photography, about light -- as I have walked and been blessed. I no longer write here everyday because I split my time with Sweet Wayfaring, a journal of journeys beyond the mountains. A new adventure begins over there today . I'll be back here with a new walk in a couple of weeks time. Words to walk with: From the Holy Bible Psalm 89:15 (New International Version) Blessed are those who have learned to acclaim you, who walk in the light of your presence, O LORD.
