Saluting their service - Remembrance Day - Lest We Forget 🌺
Wreaths laid at the memorial to celebrate the centenary of the Royal Australian Navy Submarine Service 1914-2014 and to commemorate the sacrifices made by the Allied Submariners operating out of Fremantle during WWII. .
When you go home, tell them of us and say, “For your tomorrow, we gave our today”
Why is this day special to Australians and New Zealanders?
At 11 am on 11 November 1918 the guns on the Western Front fell silent after more than four years of continuous warfare. The allied armies had driven the German invaders back, having inflicted heavy defeats upon them over the preceding four months. In November the Germans called for an armistice (suspension of fighting) in order to secure a peace settlement. They accepted allied terms that amounted to unconditional surrender.
The 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month attained a special significance in the post-war years. The moment when hostilities ceased on the Western Front became universally associated with the remembrance of those who had died in the war. This first modern world conflict had brought about the mobilisation of over 70 million people and left between 9 and 13 million dead, perhaps as many as one-third of them with no known grave. The allied nations chose this day and time for the commemoration of their war dead.
The anniversary is used to remember all the people who have died in wars - not just World War One. This includes World War Two, the Falklands War, Vietnam, the Gulf War, and conflicts in Afghanistan and Iraq.
The first two-minute silence in Britain was held on 11 November 1919, when King George V asked the public to observe a silence at 11am.

Ya está por llegar el verano ☀️ y Australia tiene muchas playas para que practiques el surf, encontrarás olas para todos los niveles. ¡Anímate!
#throwback to 6 months ago to the insane ride that my last week in Australia was! WOW!!!! -
What a ride that was.... -
Starting my PEIEC International Practitioner 7 Day Intensive in Brisbane
Finishing my time in the Sunshine Coast
Saying goodbye to old friends
Meeting new friends for life
Meditating with 1064 people on the beach at sunrise🌅
Letting centuries of past hurt to leave my layers
Witnessing and holding space for others to heal deeply yet gently
Learning how to heal self, family, friends, family trees, clans, tribes, cultures, dogs, horses, food and plants.
Magical doesn’t do it justice.
The complete energetic surrender beyond vocabulary and emotion to simply be was priceless..... -
In being in that space I knew with utmost certainty that this was how I would fulfil my soul’s purpose and career vision of connecting families to self, each other and the world🌍
The healing of the shadow self of course continues here in my homeland 🏴but I want to take this opportunity to thank my amazing teachers which is essentially everyone who has came in and out of my life for a season or reason, especially in the last 8️⃣years.

Ladies and Gentlemen please welcome DIANA to the High Tees MUSICAL PANTHEON stage….. This limited edition range is all about celebrating the International musical icons who shook up the industry and popular culture and DIANA certainly did that and then some.
As the leader singer of The Supremes she was part of Motown’s most successful acts and the best charting female group of all time in the US.
As a solo artist, she was a defining voice of the 70’s and 80’s and still to this day influences the music we hear today.

It just had to be.

🌳 It's that time of the year again in Sydney! I've been admiring one of the prettiest Jacaranda trees outside the Town Hall building everyday on my way to work, so it's about time I shared a photo with you for this year's Jacaranda season! 💜
🥰 Whenever I see one of these trees it reminds me of my mum because she planted a Jacaranda tree outside our home when I was younger 🏡 I didn't understand at the time why she loved the flowers so much, but I'm beginning to understand why now as I'm getting older, as they really are so beautiful... 🌸
🌞 Happy weekend everyone! Have you got these pretty trees near where you live or have you only seen them on the gram?! 📸
Big shout out to all our fire fighters and rural fire services who have been fighting all our fires. You guys are amazing. So many people have lost their homes and a few their lives.
We have had a thick blanket of smoke surrounding us for the past couple of days. Even with our house closed us you can smell smoke and the fires are over 30kms away!
The one beautiful thing out of all the smoke has been the red sun on sunrise and sunset. These photos don't even do justice to how stunning it looks.
Praying for rain....Australia badly needs it, including our stuggling farmers.
To the drawing board! ✏️ ⠀
