There’s something about a river
that draws me to its side
toward a lake or sea.
With abundance of freshness
it’s filled with life and health
beyond the distant fields.
From gentle humble beginnings
– a fact of life itself
amid a lonely past.
Whispers of the river embrace
the peace renews my mind
yonder pathways I see.

Well, hello to you too and thank you for dropping by. 🙂
Let me tell you a short story behind Riverside Peace and why I named it so. Yes, it is the official website of Australian author Chrissy Siggee but it’s the whole me.
At the time of creating my blog my husband and I lived and previously lived not far from a river. The closest river from our new home now is still just a short drive away but there are quite a few rivers really. Rivers have always inspired my writing and I’ve spent hours taking in the solitude at a river side and photographing the source of my inspirations. Not only do we have a river close by but there are numerous beaches, country drives, a zoo and the Koala Hospital – all to inspire any writer or photographer. With the Covid-19 restrictions and closures, I can only work with archived photos. 🙂
Gardening has always been a relaxing hobby and has always inspired my writing and my prayer life. Let me leave you with a favourite song of mine.
