Buderim Buying is environmentally conscious

What are the residents of Buderim buying? We are a wonderfully environmentally conscious group of people in Buderim. This is evidenced by one of our top best seller’s this month being our Boomerang Bags. We are selling so many of the Boomerang Bag’s I’m starting to think I might become a bag seller. Just kidding but it is wonderful to see this community-centric bag running around Buderim in everyone’s arms. If you haven’t seen the…

Romancing the Author

A gathering of like-minded people is a wonder to be seen. The exchange of commentary about topics all are excited about is enlightening. Sometimes the connections of ideas and interests just work so well together and this is what I was lucky enough to experience and be part of recently. In the library at the Immanuel Lutheran College located in Buderim on the Sunshine Coast, Romancing the author began. A group of well-recognized children’s and…

Top Shelf Travel

With Easter fast approaching and at least four days free to take some time out, it’s a great time to think about local areas to travel to and relax or get some fitness in and do a walk or hike in our beautiful countryside. Planning these short breaks seem to be last on our organization list but can have therapeutic benefits long after the holiday has finished. The house maintenance can wait, some time to recalibrate the…

Relaxing in Whistler

Sitting here watching the snow fall, nursing a cold in the Whistler Library I’m reminded of the wonderful world of books and what they can offer in so many ways. I’ve tried meditation, yoga, walking (which I still power on with) swimming, gym classes, drinking and many other ways of relaxing but the feeling of sitting in a library distilling my thoughts grabs me like no other relaxation. It grounds me and makes me feel…

28 years and counting, Lonely days no more

The world can be a lonely place sometimes. I know this from the years I spent between dropping off and waiting for my children to come home from school. How I loved/love the moment they return to the fold and offload all the wonderful things they experienced in a day. But the hours between where empty except for an occasional friendly get together we managed to make with other mothers.   So, I was wonderfully…

Come on…… Let’s Talk

David Gaunt, from GleeBooks, talking about what Amazon means for the Bookselling industry recently made this comment  “… we connect writers and readers, and there is nobody out there — nobody — who could do it more intimately and profoundly. If you want to discover a new great voice, you have to come to us. By the time you find out about that author on Amazon or in the mainstream media, you’re just jumping on…
