I have been so fortunate to cross off 3 items on my bucket list this year.
Two bloggers helped give my dreams wings and shared in the adventure/experience.
First item crossed off the list was swimming with dolphins in March at Kaikoura in the South Island of New Zealand with my blogging, now real life friend, Stoneweaver. What a mind blowing experience that was!!!
Next when I was in Texas, USA in July staying with another blogging, now real life friend, Annemarie we danced in the rain with her son. That was a wonderful, joyous occasion.
The third item was climbing a tall tree. Once again Stoneweaver put her hand up and when she visited me in Australia with her husband in September we drove down to Balmoral Beach in Sydney and after much huffing and puffing managed to climb an ancient Banyan tree.
My next dream is to set up a Foundation to help Not-for-profit organisations run their programs.
So Universe.....how about it!!!!!!
"The reason why the universe is eternal is that it does not live for itself; it gives life to others as it transforms."

My Foundation is now up and running! I have called it "Bella Jules" meaning beautiful and youthful. I will be handing out my first donation next week which is a very exciting moment in time. Thank you Universe!!!
That is me in an amazing, ancient banyan tree in Balmoral, Sydney in September 2010
Here is the Banyan tree in all it's glory!
