My trip went well

Category: On the road, Workshops

Always when I return from a trip, I kick myself for not having taken more photos of my workshops. The problem is of course is that I am usually so busy during the workshop that I forget to take them until it is all over and by that stage, of course, everyone is rushing to get away and the opportunity has passed. I did take photos of the workshop I did in Rosewood, however, which I have posted here.

Rosewood - how I love it! You can smell the clean air, smell the eucalyptus and it is one of the few places where I love to rise early so that I can see the mist lift from the Snowy Mountains that surround it. When the mist lifts you can see the snow on top of the mountains. Love it, love it, love it! Rosewood is a stopover on the road to Tumbarumba and it is worth the stop - if you are in the area you should go and have a look. You can even have a good cup of coffee at GONE BARNY which is run by Jenny and her wonderful family. They have built a barn and have made it into a coffee shop filled with beautiful gifts. I love the smell of the place; it smells not only of good coffee but of the Eucalyptus oil that they distil themselves.

I would like to thank Jenny Mursett, who is the teacher and the organiser of my Rosewood workshops as she does an incredible job. Most of the students come from the surrounding districts such as Wagga Wagga, Batlow and Tumbarumba and over the years we have all become friends and I look forward to catching up with everyone. I have found that country people seem to have time for each other. I like this way of life and I just wish that city people could stop and draw breath a little more. I guess I notice the hustle and bustle of the city and its people more because I travel to the country so often.

I have more to tell you but I thought I would write more tomorrow.
