When I walked the 10km around the base of Uluru, I found little heart stones everywhere embedded in the path. It made me laugh. And writing this the lights are flashing at my friend Gill’s house. I’ve been here 5 days and the lights haven’t flashed once…Hearts, birds and flashing lights seem to be surrounding me. I find them all delightful and comforting. I take them as signs from Laura and the universe. On the balcony of our tent a flock of emerald green budgies alighted on the railing and peered in and a little black and white bird walked up to the window. And one night in the middle of a very intense storm when our glamorous tent was shaking to the point we thought it might lift off ‘Wizard of Oz’ style, the living room light suddenly flashed on. It felt like a good luck charm.
