We can do sunsets, great lifestyles and yummy food. But we can’t sell our wine, we just drink it. We can do festivals, design logos and talk creative. But we can’t keep an economy, we just talk it. We can do playgrounds, live music and walking events. But we can’t manage our traffic, we just sink it. We can. But we can’t. Continue reading We can. But we can’t.

why are broken hearts a pain to heal and why do they need to why do we focus on happiness more than fulfillment and why is that smile on your face not mine we live and breathe through a journey of ups and downs we seek and search and drive each other over and over and we long for something too far away for what is it that keeps us here for what is this thing growing and for what purpose are we following our right path and on the right journey are we even bothered if we’re not and … Continue reading POEM | words jumble out
The vast flat planes For miles my eyes strain Part bare, but over there The terrain has grown again. A tractor dusts the horizon Wheat and sheep tended by the chosen Our farmers, driven by tradition From when time was once frozen. Brown tuffs of weed From floating drifts come the seeds Across further, some lavender grows The wild country no longer. A windmill stands great Lost from history, forgotten Wine turbines churn, our fate Its the horizon, dam straight. ps i saw a sheep do a wee, bent knee, next to tree, let him be.

Love you always in my heart, we will never be apart. xxx Continue reading Christmas December 2011 | Merry Christmas Wade
