11th November 2021. Today as we remember all the fallen and veterans from all nations I am a little overwhelmed as I remember again my father and his unique job in the military that we did not even know about until five years ago. An Auzzie bush bloke but with a love for his fellowman. What grief when I see the world behaving now so selfishly. So many nations HOW GREAT WE ARE! Patriotism is applauded but respect for all the suffering for all lost in past battles..should be acknowledged …BUT also proclamation of HOPE for ALL who Know,,,,, where they will spend ETERNITY.

The winding Path of my life continues to amaze me. I ask of the LORD as this year journeys onward that I will walk and DO his will for HIS Pueposes in all areas of my writing life as well as in the natural and in the home A-men.




COVID 19. My life continues to be a learning curve. MY BLOG twice a week seems to be my only clear and understandable writing place. I return here and sense that this Ashes Website can now be used like a blog site also. I will have to find out. Perhaps speak with a WordPress Expert. For now I am going to use this as a space until I know absolutely what I have here. It was a free website many years ago but NOW Wow!

today is 5th October, 2019 and because of feeling  creative and energised, I am looking and all the resources I have and using them all.   For the information of anyone who may journey onto this  Beyond the Ashes place below are the writings which have flowed over my life in recent years.

A new inspiration is called  http://www.silverfirewebsite.com     and although this link may not work here yet it is something where from the past the sparks of inspiration came in poetry and prose form.   I hope with beautiful illustrations they too may be a blessing.

http://www.golden-rains.com     is an overview of life and has Bear Stories.

http://www.sacredmusings.com     is where more SPIRITUAL jottings are expressed.

Refreshment and Peace!




Ashes travels emotionally and spiritually but the physical journey goes from desert heart to coastal beauty.   Nothing can assuage human sorrow.  Forgiveness is the answer they will find.
