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.

  1. Oh, I DO like this one! I like that there is another duck in the background, too. I understand that you were aiming for another bird and caught this guy instead. 🙂 How cool is that? The green makes a beautiful background and sets off that patch of blue on his wing. And the words are so true…sometimes that belief is a struggle. It matches the photo, too – you can just see all the energy this duck is putting into getting airborne!


      1. I think it works really well. I’m glad you didn’t trash it. There is so much texture and caught energy in this one. Yep, you’re right, it’s a FEMALE mallard duck. She is beautiful!


There are two things I know for certain. One: Bert and Ernie are gay. Two: I want to hear your opinion.
