The Cascades of Leura Falls

by - 7:29 PM




One of my favourite moments: while hiking towards Leura Falls, I especially loved sitting on a lone bench atop a cliff-side cavern and listening to the other-worldly crashing of the cascades below me. I remember taking out my precious little Kobo E-reader while munching on a tuna sandwich and soaking in the thought-provoking literature of Bonhoeffer. That was my heaven on earth: just me, my God, His creation, a simple lunch, and a brilliant book.






In the words of Bonhoeffer, the infamous German theologian, pastor, spy & martyr, 'I feel the least lonely when I am alone.' Breath-taking moments in solitude, the rush of the cascades beneath, the stillness of the forest, the grandeur of the mountains. Sitting there reading Bonhoeffer's inspiring biography & savoring a simple sandwich, I know for myself that his words are true, when you are alone, you know in the fullest sense that God is with you.
Sending all my love, 
Janielle

Welcome to my wayfaring world of stories. I’m a traveling musician and music educator from Melbourne living in Kabul, Afghanistan. Join me on my quest to embrace people of peace in tough places, inspire creative education where none exists, spark conversations that challenge the status quo, and collaborate with like-minded young people to catalyze a movement of peacemaking through acts of compassion and creativity among the young and free. As a nomad at heart, my ‘home’ is wherever I journey with people on the ground and discover life on the frontiers.
