Happy Winter Solstice everyone! We celebrated early on the weekend with meatballs a la Amercian Gods, garlic bread and apple pie.

Today I'm just enjoying the winter sun and how much I enjoy watching the seasons change.

The last year I lived in Adelaide I knew that we would be moving somewhere subtropical, and so I made sure to really appreciate the autumn leaves and having to wear heavy jackets and scarves for six months of the year.

Even now seven years later I still feel like I cannot complain when I get cold in winter here in Brisbane. And how could I! Every day is like the most perfect autumn day in Adelaide; sunny but crisp.

New hat again!

🗺 There’s a beach just south of here called Glass beach. It’s filled with breathtaking pieces of colorful sea glass stones. ❇️.
.
.

The crazy thing about this beach is that years ago it was a landfill site crowded with piles and piles of garbage. The dirty odds and ends of peoples' lives. Once the heaps of rummage got too steep, the town would burn it. This fire would transform the trash into the stunning glass we now can see. 🔥 .
.
.

I heard the ruby red ones are made of pre-1967 car tail lights. My favorites are the brilliant green ones. Every year, thousands of people stop here to visit and while some come and see, there’s a few who can’t help but take a piece or two home with them.
. .
⚠️ A sign is posted warning visitors it is unlawful to remove the glass and by stealing it you are depriving all those who come after you from seeing it. It’s tempting to see something so lovely and want to bring it home, to keep a little reminder of the beauty for ourselves. I find the idea ironic that we would want to collect someone else’s transformed trash to keep as our own. 🤷🏻‍♀️ .
.
.
But we do this every day when we compare our lives with the fragments of others. Our struggles. Our bodies. Our beauty. Our bank accounts. Our relationships. We look to social media and see people’s lives laid out like glass on the beach. Their unique experiences and ideas they’ve toiled and burned until it looked like something acceptable, sitting side-by-side other people’s acceptable, dressed up garbage, abet transformed, and we want to have a little part of it for ourselves.
.
.
We see their beauty as it is now and not the rubbish it once was. Perhaps we see this while we are still on fire, searing and unsure and blistering within our own conversion. It's hot and sometimes painful.
.
.
It’s hard to remember that at the end of our enkindling is something quite beautiful too, but that it only comes with the flames of difficulty and embers of adversity and that we must keep burning. 🔥💗🔥

Lanzarote es nuestra otra isla, algunos de nosotros incluso hemos vivido allí. Hay muchas playas y en algunas nos permiten entrar, más de las que nos permiten en Gran Canaria es por eso que la isla nos encanta.🐶✈️

My NY minute guide (part 1) is live on the blog, and it's reaaaally really making me want to live in NYC... ideally in this 5th Ave apartment 💁🏻
