A 91 yo's journey to her deserted childhood homes

My Grandmother Nell, (born 1926) was brought up in a farming environment in country Victoria, Australia.

We spent a day going to see her first house and then to a farm where her grandmother, and later Uncle and Aunty lived. Both houses are abandoned now.
Complete with a few old photos to give you a fuller historical context.

It was my first time to these places. It turned out to be quite a moving and interesting experience.
If you don't want to watch it all, there's a nice photo montage at 14 min set to music. But Irecommend you do. There's some interesting stories and beautiful music along the way.

'I made mistakes' - A parent's love

A month without my daughter...
...made June 2017....

I wouldn't have shared this...

..I changed my mind.
Today... the day of her return.


Myth and lies

May the stars align for you and us all this year.
Thought I'd kick it off with a very simple poem. If you like please share.



Career is the con
You carved into slices
And lauded
All over again.

Mythical journey
