I was at a writing course a few weeks ago at the Australian Writers’ Centre. I was lucky to be there and grateful for the opportunity to learn more about the craft. It was there I met Ria — a classically trained singer who also worked as a Braille specialist, transcribing information for the blind. […]
I know we should be gathering rosebuds, but surely these daisies would do just as well? For Debbie’s Six Word Saturday!
I do enjoy a good sun flare. The image was taken at the pool one hot afternoon. Via the Daily Post Photo Challenge #23: Hot
If you head out to Hobart’s Elizabeth Street Mall you may come across them — a group of strong-willed and passionate grandmothers knitting for a cause. For almost three years Tasmanian grandmothers, also known as Tassie Nannas, have been protesting against the Australian Government’s policy of offshore detention with their knitting needles.

I failed dismally. I am new to the game and I must have made a few mistakes when I was teaching them. After a few turns I had open rebellion on my hands. My husband declared himself the winner and refused to play. It is my contribution to Debbie’s Six Word Saturday.

I met a friend at work many years ago. She was and is a remarkable woman who had endured much to see better days. She came to Australia from Sudan, as it was back then, before the split. She shares just a little of what it was like running from one place to the next, […]

Head an hour out of Hobart to Mt Field National Park, and you will be able to access Russell Falls. It is one of the prettiest and probably the most photographed waterfall in Tasmania. It’s an easy 20-minute walk to the falls. There are boardwalks and good tracks most of the way that takes you […]
