I left Melbourne this morning and am on the way to my first workshop and I just pulled in for the night . Did about 650 km and 400 km to go.
Outback arts NSW, who is my employer for this trip does a terrific job to bring arts and crafts to country women . I have toured with this amazing organisation several times now and can not express enough gratitude for how the organiser looks after the project and assists so many life's in the process .
Australia is a very big country and many parts have been in droughts for a very very long time which creates a lot of heartships for farmers, their families and communities . Hatmaking has become a way of connecting with woman and besides skills being learned their is sharing, laughter and personal insights to be had
Today is a travel day and so is tomorrow . My time to reflect on the horizons of this amazing country we live in. It allows me time to listen to books and pot casts and it is an opportunity to connect with nature and its beauty each time I stop the truck .
I feel truly blessed
