Taken on August 9, 2009. Taken at Corindi Beach.
I was bitten by a little bit of wanderlust, I've been a bit itchy around the house and knew I had to Get Out. I just didn't know where.
I started off with a quick visit to my grandparents to say hi and to give my Pa his hat back that he left in my car, and Gran recommended I stop at Corindi which is just north of Woolgoolga.
It suited my petrol-limited budget fine, so I packed my lunch and drove away!
The weather has been absolutely perfect of late. Brilliant, bright, sunny days. It's warm in the sunshine, cool in the shade. Not -quite- warm enough steadily for short sleeves for MY taste, but clearly the locals are starting to think otherwise. Corindi beach is beautiful as all the beaches along this coast are.
I didn't end up staying very long. I'm not sure what I'm so anxious about; I -thought- I had to get away from the house but I still couldn't sit still and just relax. I thought briefly about going for a walk on the beach, then thought I'd come back home and go for a walk along Moonee Beach here, and then when I got here I just stayed inside knitting. So there's some sort of restless anxiety going on, I suppose I have lot to be anxious about; I expect to hear back from Canberra this week, I have a doctor's appointment (finally) on Tuesday, I have a billion and ten craft-related-ideas going on in my head that I'm having trouble kicking off, and several other things as well.
I've started to explore meditation, and with the help of a friend have begun to put it into practice, if only for very short moments to begin with to try and get used to breathing techniques. I'm honestly not sure I could go for very long right now anyways, I'm finding it so incredibly difficult to calm my mind. But with practice, it will become easier. It's like art.
