In 2010 I began a blog called 'Journeys With Noelle'. And boy, did I travel some miles in that blog. With well over 100,000 visits, 47 followers, and an array of guests that reads like the Academy Awards A List, I felt as though I made a difference to fellow writers by sharing their works to my blog visitors.
Sadly, my move to my rainforest hideaway has had a couple of casualties, one of them being my beloved blog. You can still access the blog at http://noelleclark.blogspot.com.au/, however I can't get into the back end to keep it going, despite many efforts.
And so, here I am in a new home - a delightful cottage nestled in the rainforest - and I have built myself a Bower: A place of meditation, peace, charm. A sanctuary, arbour, grotto. Sometimes I write in my Bower. Sometimes I just sit and watch the birds, pademelons (a small marsupial that resembles a wallaby), land mullets (Egernia Major, a large type of skink native to this area), and everything else that lives in my little piece of paradise.
From my bower, I can clearly hear Curtis Falls, a spring-fed waterfall of exquisite beauty with it's crossover drop looking like a wedding veil.
So - WELCOME TO THE BOWER. My Bower. My home. If you choose to join me, I will tell you about my forthcoming book; I will bring esteemed friends and fellow authors here to meet you; and I will share with you the joys and tribulations of living this close to nature.
Thank you for visiting.
