Snow lake, Dhilba Guuranda-Innes National Park

The-divide-in-the-salt-pa_20210112-031614_1

I get my inspiration by getting out and visiting the vast open spaces of South Australia. A regular place I visit is Snow Lake near Marion Bay South Australia. I find it inspirational, I walk and walk and have never once got to the other side, it is a vast expanse. (There are quite a few salt lakes in Dhilba Guuranda-Innes National Park When you visit simply meander around the park and you are sure to see a few.)


I find that the time I spend doing the things I love produces far more fruit than being at home and being idle.

This year I felt totally inspired whilst wandering around Snow Lake.

Below I have listed a few things I intend to do to keep myself focused on the journey ahead for 2021.

No is a very powerful word which can be used in a positive way.

Say NO to watching news broadcasts that you have no power over.
Say NO to voices which tell you .."You will never make it..you are no good."
Say NO to that extra hour of overtime that will take you away from your family.
Say NO to being selfish and lashing out in anger.
Say NO to unhealthy food that is so easy to grab and put on a plate, instead of planning and cooking a meal.
Say NO to being busy ....and take some time for God, you and your family.
Say NO to that extra vase and you already have 27.
Say NO to excessive time on devices and TV, turn them off for awhile and take a short walk.
Say NO to laziness, get up if you have nothing to do ...join a club help someone, take a friend out for lunch, read, run, dance, paint...
Say NO when you have to!

Say YES to a walk in your favourite place.

Snow Lake.
Old boards lie here and there amongst the sand and the reeds.
Remains of an old fence. Salt lake, Inneston
The reeds blowing in the breezes of an orange sunset
Wood and reeds
The smoke from the Kangaroo Island fires made for eerie sunsets. The sun turned blood red as it set over the lake.
Inneston salt lake
Snow lake
You called me out into a spacious place where I am free..
