The Lemurian Hermitage
A hermit is a person who lives apart from society. Traditionally, this has meant living alone and self-sufficiently, but not always. This House of Solitude is occupied by a Hermit who came from the Lemurian Abbey to connect back to nature and enjoy the serenity and tranquility. She welcome guests.

Spring is in the Air
I love Spring
I love the buds on all in the garden plants and in
the parks the Poplars .
Their new shoots like green arrows
They seem to be stretching toward the sky
to salute the changes in their limbs.
My park has Lombardy Poplars,
planted there in 1928
Over many years they have been pruned
Badly ,very badly,quite disastrous pruning
And as my frind Angie and I walked this morning
They were there again " Those Abourists"
We tried to keep calm ,we tried to be pleasant
we tried not to sound know-alls we really did try
2 young men names on their overalls COPP. Arbourist
Mark F. and Dwayne E.
We asked the question.....WHY are you cutting off those branches now at this time of the year
Their answer " They are across the path they might fall on someone:" The council can be sued for millions.
These trees are meant to have cascading limbs
We advised them that a meeting on the 20th of September
with the MAYOR of the City of Port Phillip and we concerned residents
was to ratify the Heritage Listing of the Park and the TREES as well
They knew nothing of this meeting ,they had not heard of it from
their supervisor who would also be at that meeting.
They then left the park after Angie had quoted where these(Using the Botanical name)
trees come from,and that they are not even in the Heritage listed Melbourne Botanical Gardens.
I came home and opened up my computer
Sent them an email as to the details of the meeting on the 20th
Perhaps I should not have done this ,going over the head of their boss
But too late its done
Lois you are sometimes,perhaps,only perhaps
Think Girl,think before acting emotionally.
I open up Imogen's site at the Hermitage
and look at her beautiful photos
and I am calmed
Do these 2 young men see trees in the same way
I doubt it...but I am open to my mind being changed

Prompted because of a post of mine on 'the other blog',
I searched on the phrase 'how to do' and found this ...
Work of the Trees
The children came to dance beneath the trees,
to laugh and tumble in the rusting leaves,
and learn of simple life by Nature's touch.
Then they grew tall, broad and long of hair,
And knowledge was seized like a stolen pear
while the wisdom of flowers was trampled.
As men and women they forgot to sing,
of such natural truths that wonders bring,
and their spirits withered in sad decay.
Yet some still heard the laughing leaves of dawn
and became shaman, wizard, seer and crone,
and rekindled the spark of innocence.
They live where what was, is what now will be,
nurturing powers drawn from memory,
for within yourself is rebirthing Light.
Living challenge will dictate 'what to do',
but 'how to do' must be found within you,
each by each to wonder where ever when.

Postcards From Cyberia
Just because Imogen has decided to take a working holiday in Cyberia at the new Hermitage Villa does not mean she will be abandoning Lemuria. No, there will still be things happening here, as nature never stops. These postcards are taken of a wonderful place in Cyberia, found while Imogen was out exploring. This place changes colours, according to dreams. It is called the "Villa of Dreams", after all.
He found it!
