Anzac Day

Today here in Australia and New Zealand we commemorate the brave men from our countries who fought against ridiculous odds in a land far from home to protect our way of life. Today we also commemorate all our Defence Forces both past and present on this day.
It touches my heart to see young people today continuing to honour them.
My Grandson sings in his school choir and they have a beautiful service every year.
My DD captured him yesterday....
DD's class handmade these beautiful tributes. There is something so touching about seeing the effort these 8 year olds went to.
I have permission to share this exquiste work of art by Queensland artist Sandi Lear. It also speaks directly to my heart.
Lest we forget.
Namaste and Blessings Michelle xxx


  1. How beautiful Michelle, both the photography and the artwork. I love the soldier playing his bugle. Lest we Forget.

  3. Love the photos of your grandson in his choir outfit...very smart 😊. Those tributes made by your daughter's class are just so touching and poignant. πŸ’•And Sandi's painting is just so special.
