“.. to bring light and love to those around me.”


“Our inherent nature is peace, just as it is love, compassion, beauty, generosity, joy and wisdom. Nature shows us all this, if we can take the time to be present, to open our senses and begin to perceive who we really are.”


“Yes, take time to be with your land, let all your senses take notice, a powerful spiritual practice indeed.”


“By understanding and cherishing the natural world we take care of ourselves and our planet.”


“When we pay attention we discover awareness radiates out endlessly beyond and into the body in every direction; this is a hint about our real nature, we are life, we are It, whatever It is.”


“For as long as I can remember I have wondered about the ‘spiritual’ side of life. My explorations have gone in many directions, but now I am content to do what little I can to bring light and love to those around me.”


Christine’s words in DADIRRIDREAMING

Christine indeed has brought light and love to us.

Miss you, Christine.

  1. You made me smile when I saw Christine’s beautiful smile Amy. She was so full of light…wasn’t she !!! I hope her family are doing okay…can’t imagine what this must be doing to them. To lose her so suddenly. Thank goodness she had that wonderful trip and time in Paris with her family.


  2. A lovely tribute Amy. I did not know Christine and have been honoured to read the wonderful words from you and others about this amazing woman. My sympathy for your loss.


    • Thank you for reading, M. It’s still a shock… Hope her family is doing okay.
      Christine reminded us that our friendship in the blog community is real and special.

  5. I too was so shocked and sad – feel I knew Christine in some ways and she often stopped by with lovely comments – including the day before she died. You have shown the light and love of her so beautifully here Amy p.s. always liked that top image 🙂


  6. Dear Amy,
    I so appreciate this. You were obviously connected at a really deep level.
    I have just finished painting her casket. It is surrounded by red lotus.
    Maybe I can work out how to share something of the service with you all.
    I understand that the blogging friends are at least as entitled to be a part of the farewell as those who can get here in person.


    • Dear Stuart, Thank you so much for including us. Christine has inspired many of us and will always be remembered. She will love the red lotus. Love, Amy


  7. A beautiful tribute to Christine this is Amy. I didn’t know her but read about her and news of her sudden, tragic passing over on Jo’s blog. So, so sad, but she left her beautiful legacy, a shining light, illuminating all who did know her. Blessings…

  9. Dear Amy, thank you for this lovely post, I have Meg to thank for sending me here. This time last year I was getting excited, waiting to meet Christine, she was with me for two days. Next week I’m going back to one of the places I took her. It’s taken all this time to find the courage. I miss her and hardly a day goes by when I don’t think of her.


    • Thank you so much for visiting this post for our special friend, Christine. I didn’t know you had spent two days with Christine, it must take a lot of courage to go back… Thank you for sharing the story, Lucid. 🙂


Thank you for visiting! Love to hear from you...
