People who live in cities blessed with this kind of water need access to the river, to draw it's nurturing spirit into their hearts...
Spending time by a river teaches us many things, one of them the flow of life, its constant movement, and it's clear that an enchanted life demands an appreciation of this flow.
The Re-enchantment of Everyday Life
I am so blessed to live only 10 minutes drive from a wonderful place called Warrandyte, home to an eclectic mix of boutiques, restaurants, galleries and nurseries that reflect the rich population of potters, painters and artisans that live here.
I love to come here, grab a curry pie from the delicious wood-fired bakery, and sit beside the river and soak up all of the spiritual goodness.
It is also wonderful to browse amongst the many gorgeous shops and galleries, or go for a walk beside the river.
Not too far from Warrandyte is another lovely, bushy town called Eltham...my very favourite shop is here, which I have taken some photos of (sorry the quality isn't fantastic). I never leave here without some little treasure to bring home.
