This is just a page for me to share bits and pieces of my writing. It started when I completed a Master of Arts (writing and literature) at Deakin University so up to 2010 these posts were from course work. Now it's just whatever and whenever the fancy to write something takes hold.

Sometimes I participate in a Photo-A-Day Challenge ran by Fat Mum Slim (#fmspad). Today’s prompt is Happy Place. I thought for a while about where that might be. I thought about beaches, fireplaces and green countryside but I’m never entirely happy being in a particular place.
I worked out I have two happy places:
The laughter and love of friendship, often enjoyed with wine and cheese, and
Alone time for research, reading and writing, often enjoyed with a cup of tea.
Hence, I can be happy no matter where I live. The stacks of stuff that surrounds me is of such little consequence I need to stop stressing about how it’s all going to fit into our next abode.
