Right Now Organize The Trips You Make

You will make it won't you! 

Oh great. Just thrown in the deep end and head to Sydney and three months time. Attend a Momentum Day. What is a momentum day! That question yet to be asked.

Heck there was yet to come all the bits to organize.  Yet such was the trust that out of the mouth confidently comes  "Yes. Will you be there?"



The video has a note. "Little girls who dream become woman of vision.  A quote said when a State girl Guide Leader challenged all the Girl Guides of Victoria to out think the other states with how the innovative changes would affect every member.

Changes thought out it turned out into the smallest, microscopic little thing.  So many dot points bunched into small groups.  Branching between that one and bigger community access points.  Yet all coming under one name: Change.

change that year was a challenge.  Finances. Vision. Place to stay: Vision it. Activities : Vision it.

Along with a humble apology from the person who actually put forward the challenge in the first place.  sometimes there are reasons why even the best people may organize the trips you make that inspire you for your future.  That future may change radically. But what ever happens you will have changed.

Life is not static. static is stationary. Life moved with the electrified ebb and flow that pushes each person forward. 

Right now organize the trip[s you make so that there is a life challenge to be met - and rise up to meet that challenge.

One Dream One Focus One Flow Of Energy

Scattered emotions, different trains of thought. Pulled about here and there sure sucks. Add to this peoples interference with your mindset.

Think about what you last achieved.  Not the little steps along the way.  That day you decided... I'm going to... Then set about to achieve that one thing. 

Use 'Reach Out To Life's Adventures' as a good example.  Within the video below listen to the points explained.



Sure! Following these principles to get to England only took a few months. But did it really? 

No. To get to England took a combined effort of smaller steps.  

Search this blog for Perth, Brisbane, Melbourne, Bendoc, Wollongong, Cloverleigh, Canberra, Bega, Lakes Entrance, Sale, Bairnsdale, Leongatha, Inverlock. And yes England.

These are still smaller steps of the big picture. When writing this these smaller steps are just the start of travelling though 'every' small country town in Australia. 

The aim is to 'cover those miles with smiles.' Meeting people, recording their most magnificent smile associated stories.

A SMILE 4 U Today.... One Dream. One Focus. One Flow Of Energy

A Visual History Of Churchill Victoria 3842


Churchill likes near the South Eastern side of the Hazlewood Pondage. 

For years the town lacked paintings, outside art scapes and even community gardens.

Gloriously one week that started to change.  Youth, now adults had come back to the town, gained permission and then targeted the community surfaces.  The dull and drab suddenly began to have new life.  Even underpasses at the side of shops garnered a new, vibrant coat of paint.

This painting tells the visual story from left to right.

The aboriginals inhabited the land long before the next visitors arrived.  The Dreamtime traveled the land areas. Farmers returned from the great wars.  Were allocated a ticket for land clearances. 

However after the second of these overseas wars the country needed power stations.  Latrobe Valley and it's surroundings have plenty of brown coal just lying there. Thing is the power stations needed water for cooling.  Thus tickets were rescinded.  The valley ended up with a Pondage. 

Boat and marine skills were learned as the area soon had a yacht club.  Kayak and canoe lessons were learned there. 
Fifty odd years ago CThe township of Churchill was named.  Strangely the two shopping areas had a divide that was the road separating the shopping centers. 

With the opening of Churchill, there was a choice.  The Cigar of its namesake won rather than a swimming pool for the population of the township.

The cigar's light though acted as a beacon for cars and lost travelers in the foothills of the Strezlechis where at night there simply were no lights.

The binni shell was created as the Monash [ Now Federation University] was originally part of the Yallourn TAFE system.  The Bini shell area is now cleared and yet to be built on.

Churchill as a town has a path system that just about surrounds it created out of a granular compactable surface.  Hence the Yellow Brick Road visual reference.

The painting of this mural came at a time where the population was experiencing a change in connections.  The people began to know where they had been. They encouraged the younger generations to know where they were going with their lives.  To broaden their horizons.   To explore the fact that they were awesome enough.  And now the younger generations are inspired to ask questionds about the history of the two towns under one roof.
