what began as year-long challenge has become perpetual until further notice
I was born in Australia and I’m an eclectic pudding of genes ranging from German, Ukrainian, English, Irish, Belgian and Italian in the mix.
I write poetry and stories and I’m procrastinating like mad over a half-written novel about my grandmother’s life in Germany during WWII and her subsequent leaving of her homeland for the far-off planet Australia.
I also love art – looking at others’ and making it – but mostly I’m a metalsmith, ESL teacher, work in my local tourist office, bilingual and a translator and ongoing student of all things Italiano.
In August 2012 I skipped out of a life half-lived in Australia to come to the Monte Amiata region in Southern Tuscany and haven’t looked back…although the northern hemisphere winter is
a whole other thing. Brrr. conducive to writing poetry.
And, ah, here we come to the boring stuff I know, but…Unless reblogged with permission, all content on this website – poetry, photography, illustration – has been created by me and is protected by copyright. I’d love you to make use of what I create, but please ask me first and give credit where credit is due.
Un grande abbraccio,
poems, prose and pathways
