I was born in the land of Banjo Paterson, gum trees, and weather extremes.
I am a freelance writer.
I live in the Bay of Plenty, New Zealand, but still like to claim my Australian heritage.
I graduated with a Bachelor of Communications in 2008.
I am writing my first novel.
I love to write poetry, short stories, and also write for the web.
And there is nothing that is on a par with a sunny summer's day spent at Waihi Beach.
I am keeping my fingers crossed that the computer will cooperate and this post will see the light of day. I am also hoping that soon all will be sorted on the insurance front. It is proving more of a … Continue reading →
I made it to DAY 100 of the challenge. Sadly I am still sorting out insurance from the break in. So no computer that operates any faster than I can run…hence my almost disappearance from the blogging world. Please … Continue reading →
Last week I spent the afternoon out on Tauranga Harbour. As we toured around we came close to a landslip that occurred a couple of years ago. I couldn’t imagine how the family felt as they looked out from above … Continue reading →
It is hard to not find your feet tapping, your body tingling when you are privileged to watch others dance. Especially when they transfer their emotion with the twirl of a skirt, the bob of a tassel or on the … Continue reading →
two twenty nine am, someone else’s shadow highlights my own, a tears slides down nestles in the hair that lays upon a shoulder — a forever child it seems — unable to catch the darkness to bring it to the … Continue reading →
So while the computer IS co-operating…here is my take on Ailsa’s theme this week. The technique is called BOKEH. After almost 55 years…the light sometimes even makes me look reasonable. Yes this was today’s photo for my 365 challenge. But … Continue reading →
I have had a love affair with this house I call home. It is the home I brought after I broke my back the first time and could no longer manage the three acres the kids and I lived on … Continue reading →
1. I am going with the angle that I changed two photos…in to one.
2. There is a bit of change going on in my life these days…some days I feel exactly like the ghost in the image, translucent [in the state or quality of being easily seen through]. Floating through this stage until I find whatever it is I am looking for.
I am having a lot of computer issues these days…so if I don’t get to visit your blog, it isn’t because I don’t want to. Just getting a post up can take hours. Once I sort this out I will pop in for a visit…I promise !!!
So today I finally tried my hand at something new in photography. It needs work. But I am pretty happy for a first attempt. It is today’s self-portrait for my 365 project. I would love to hear what you think ??
On Easter Sunday our Energy Minister Simon Bridges proposed a new law that is an assault on everything I believe to be both right and honourable as a Kiwi. In the interest of pandering to large overseas oil companies such … Continue reading →
Ailsa’s travel theme is pale this week…had to put my thinking cap on for this one. Firstly one more self-portrait. And then there is this little guy I spotted when out fishing. He was like a pale ghost just under … Continue reading →
Friday’s them over at the Weekly Photo Challenge is colour, and Marianne’s CBBH theme for the month is multi-coloured. So I decided to use this post to answer both challenges. You all know I have been taking part in a … Continue reading →
What do you get when you combine a sporting franchise run by an egotistical bozo that is feeling the economic downturn, a female billboard model on the verge of getting fired, and a reality TV show? A Dash of Reality. … Continue reading →
I have been thinking about lately. Yes I do think occasionally. About how we take it for granted we will have time to do the things we want…later. Too often we let it slide past us without making each second … Continue reading →
