Our Name

Our name came to us as a gift from the Aboriginal people in Australia with whom Claire was privileged to spend some time.  When they needed something they searched and found it in the abundance of Nature; whether it was food from the sea or the flat stone found on the beach which becomes the plate for the honoured guest.  It brings to our attention that sometimes our problems just need "fresh eyes" to see ordinary life around us in a new way.  We are also reminded that with resourcefulness and creativity we can find what we need right here and right now.
