The Tipping Point

By Kathleen

The last two weeks have been grueling. I’ll spare you the details but lets just say that the amount of fuel we each had left in our tank was badly depleted by the course. It was one of those things. All permaculture courses are intense, I’m convinced it has something to do with thinking s holistically for two weeks straight, you start to see everything with Permaculture glasses, even yourself and it usually prompts people into action of some sort.
The same is true of this course.

For Fiz, who’s been dragging, these last two weeks were the tipping point. We all need to know our limits and respect them. Being in a couple means bending and flowing with your partner, but sometimes we reach the limits of our ability keep going.

Thus, it has been decided, seeing as I wish to carry on traveling and Fiz wishes to go home that it makes the most sense for us to do so. We’ll be paying the price of not being able to see each other everyday but this is something probably best not to compromise on.

So for all you readers at home, Fiz will be headed your way next week. For those of you who wish to keep reading, I’ll be staying here and blogging about my solo adventures in Australia.

At the moment we are on the VLine train headed form Melbourne back up to Sydeny, where we will kick it with friends and enjoy a week in the warmth before Fiz heads on home. Then… well I don’t know.
