Bush LemonsApril 18, 2008
Last weekend I had the best time. I’ve joined a lesbian bushwalking group up here in the Blue mountains called the Bush Lemons. It is a group of older dykes, which is nice for Dissenter and I because we don’t have to deal with the young queer lesbians. I really like the women who are part of the group. I feel there is such an awesome gynocentric atmosphere created by lesbians communing with each other and Mother Earth. And older dykes are real womyn. They are earth womyn, they are spirit womyn, they are sister womyn.
Unbelievably, these photos were taken less than 10 kilometres away from where Dissenter and I live. We had no idea this walk existed. I really want to get a bike. The walk we went on descended steeply into a valley, continued along by a creek, then went along a ledge on the side of a mountain until it reached a cave with a pool and a small waterfall.
Of course the water was an immediate invitation for me to strip and jump in. No one else would join me, however, citing such frivolous nonsense as the freezing cold temperature of the water, as some sort of paltry excuse. Oh well, their loss.
The Bush Lemons are going on my favourite walk this weekend, down to the bottom of Wentworth Falls. I hope it isn’t too cold to go swimming.
Ah, this planet is so beautiful. It makes my heart just ache, to see how we are killing her.
