You are camouflaged against the frosty grey horizon of the darkest winter. I used to think that you were unreachable, perhaps even unattainable. I watched and waited and saw that you too were waiting. Patiently. For spring to arrive. Your cool hues, in a different light, revealed themselves to be serene and knowing. In fact, you were waiting for me, Lumi.  Time passes, truth is revealed.

Shelley and Dale took posession of Lumi after a successful bid in a silent auction raising funds for a burns vistim at the recent Julian Burton Burns Trust "Ice Ball". The funds were raised to provide a reliable vehicle for Dylan and his family so they could travel the hundreds of kilometres that they will need to do in the coming years for his treatment. Thank you Shelley and Dale. We hope Lumi proves to be a reliable source of transport as well.
