This could get carried away, there’s so much to tell!
I am a child of the 70’s and 80’s.
Love those nostalgic playlists!
I have a curious mind and love life long learning.
I’ve studied visual arts at Newcastle university majoring in fibre art/textiles, other studies include; Dip. Ed, costume for theatre, French, creative writing, Library Information and cultural services, currently - bookbinding, tarot, Auslan, meditation.
Spent a few years in Melbourne, eating baked cheese cake from Acland street St. Kinda, among other delights!
I always wanted to travel and ended up living overseas for 12 years.
I have 17 year old twins, Artemis and Armand, who recently moved to my mum’s on the Central Coast.
I teach part time in special education and am a casual at the local library.
I have 2 cats, a dog and 3 chooks.
I love mind maps, camping, walking, my groovy bicycle, road trips, books and reading, dancing, cooking when the urge takes me, poetry, nature, lists, sewing, dress ups, writing, making books and living creatively. (Ha ha, am sounding like a personal column😆)
In another life time I ran creative writing workshops in French (mind blowing!).
A favourite prompt is;
Self portrait in 3rd person. (Here’s mine, can’t wait to read yours)
She is full of hopes and dreams of places near and far.
Rarely rapid, she likes to take her time, slow, steady and surely.
She is easily distracted and overwhelmed by life...how will there ever be time to fit everything in?
She tries hard to make the most of time, though she often feels like she is whiling it away.
Sometimes she loses track of herself.
Sometimes she dances around the house.
She is a night owl, a book worm, a list maker and mind mapper, a stinky cheeese and bottomless teapot lover, a moon starer, a dandelion wish maker, a wild flower, a child of the universe.
She is full of words and poetry, exposed seams, magic and stardust.
For me, it seems there is not much difference between wondering and wandering. It has always helped me find inspiration. Creative dabbling is good for the soul, I couldn't imagine life without it and often surprise myself by what I come up with.
