Life on the hill

I love living in the hills, which I suppose is a good thing, but of late I have been thinking about it more and more.

I am not sure what it is, but I find myself more and more not wanting to go down the mountain.

Now for people like my Uncle who finds the saying "down the mountain" quite funny, I am positive or at least hoping that there are others that feel the same.

I love living in this community of ours, I love the environment in which we get to share the beauty of the trees, the vegetation and the little townships nestled amongst them.


The reason I hate heading down the mountain I believe, is that it does not contain these wonder full things.
It is a feeling of dread to head out of my little haven and face that big bad world of suburbia.
I hate that it is busier, more crowded and the feeling of  being trapped by all that is around you, its stifling.
I find as I drive up the mountain I feel myself relax, breath more deeply and can take in the magnificent views that the hills have to offer.

I know for sure that this is where I am meant to be, nestled amongst the natural giants, where you can hide if you feel the need or can be amongst them all and feel a sense of peace.

It is where I like to call home.

  1. Having only lived 'up the mountain' for a year, I am amazed at how quickly I now find heading 'off the mountain' a dread and a chore! I too love this beautiful community we are lucky to live in. It reminds me a lot of where I grew up - a small, close knit community with one shop and one school and one Kinder, which was run by Mums and Grandmothers of my class mates (of which there were only a few of us!) I feel I have gone full circle and after living in the hustle bustle of a large city, I am now bringin my children up in a community similar to the one O grew up in (albeit in a different country and without quite so many trees!)

    I've only just found your Blog, Tania and loving it so far.

  2. Thanks Rhian,
    I have not been able to find the time to blog as much over the last twelve months and I am hoping that I ill be able to do more this year.

    I also find it a great way to enchourage the kids with their writing as they respond really well to hearing what people have to say about their efforts.

    Thanks for coming over to visit
