A place of your own, where there's peace of mind

Everyone needs a place of their own, somewhere that gives you space and freedom of mind. It may be a favourite room in your home, a special place in the garden, a fishing spot by the sea or alongside a river, or beside a special tree, a tree that gives you strength.

For me (living in Mitchell, outback Queensland), my special place is beside the Maranoa River. Over the road from our home is a narrow, winding track that leads me to a special hidden place beside the river. Here, beneath the branches of a giant river red gum and on the banks of the river, I can see upstream and downstream.

Here there is tranquillity.

Here my mind is free to wander at will. In peace.
