Escaping Broken Hill, or in and around Broken Hill - Mundi Mundi sunset

There's a band in Broken Hill called 'No Exit'. To play in it, you can't want to leave Broken Hill, or so I was told. Well, as I said in my last post of 8 June, I'm trying to have a break from my blog www.ilovebrokenhill.com (and leave Broken Hill so to speak), but old habits die hard.

When I began www.ilovebrokenhill.com I said to myself that I would publish on 8th, 18th and 28th of each month. I've done this since I started the blog over 2.5 years ago. Only missed 'deadline' once. This is my 237th post.

As it's the 18th of the month, I wanted to say something, and an easy idea popped up earlier today. This was courtesy of catching up with Lincoln J., someone I've recently met at several professional development events in my hometown Melbourne.

Royal Botanic Gardens, South Yarra,
a peaceful location in my hometown Melbourne

At today's event, which included four talks and four related workshops, not to mention lunch, one of the talks was about mindfulness and meditation.

The exercise we were given in the meditation and mindfulness workshop was to think of a place where we found peace, and reflect on that for five minutes or so. My place was the quietest part I can find at the Royal Botanic Gardens in Melbourne.

As I chatted to Lincoln at lunch, I asked him where he thought of during the meditation session, an amazingly (to me) he said he thought of watching the sunset, looking over the Mundi Mundi plains, just near Silverton and Broken Hill.

Sunsets in and around Broken Hill, Silverton and Mundi Mundi are spectacular.
Put catching a sunset in the area on your list of things to do when you visit!

Thanks for the inspiration Lincoln.

Cheers, Jane Deany
