I love making images any which I can – painting, printmaking, collage, digital imaging and photography.   Writing is another hobby.     I live in Australia and spend as much time as possible in nature.

  1. I’m glad you enjoyed Great-Aunt Augusta’s deflation of the ostentatious.
    Candia is coming to Melbourne shortly, so she will be able to judge if the social disease has spread Down Under!

  2. Hi Suzanne, thank you so much for choosing to follow our adventures in sailing and photography. It is much appreciated. Looking forward to seeing more of your work on the One Four Challenge! Chris

  3. Most creative people have loved on a shoestring at one time or another. It’s likely because we have to write/pain/sing/draw/etc. and so we aren’t always able to really make enough to live otherwise. But we need it in order to really be happy, healthy and whole. Besides, learning how to live on a shoestring can help build character. (This is the reason I will give people. (*grins*))

    1. I’ve never really been motivated to get out there and earn mega bucks. I’ve tended to do pretty low status jobs so that I have time free for creativity and for further study. As you say – living on a shoe string is character forming and also – another thing tell people – it’s ecologically sound because you consume less resources, recycle and upcycle a lot 🙂

  4. p.s, Sorry, I should have asked your permission to grab the badge…. I’m designing my own one and hope you wouldn’t mind if I used the same words as I like the message??? This will just help me and others from further embarrassment and explanations…. I’ve never seen one before, but it is a very nifty thing to have and I really love it! I hope it’s okay?? 🙂

  5. Hi Suzanne, lovely to meet you first and second….I just had to snag that Award Free Blog badge! I had to turn one down recently with a very lengthy apology! 😉 It’s nice to meet someone who is guided in life by their passions, I think the soul earns more than what any amount of money would do. So, good for you. I wish you well and fortunate in all your endevours – turning that shoe-string into thick rope 🙂

    1. That’s true – your comment here and on my FWF story are triggering an urge to write longer stories. Thanks so much.

  6. I would love to go to the north pole but it’s not the agenda right now. This year I will be going to Ireland but it will be a short visit on a family matter. It was pleasure reading your post – very entertaining. 🙂

  7. Appreciate you taking the time to read my nutty post.

    You´re everywhere! Europe, Australia, Middle East…what next?……………. The North Pole.

    Thank´s again,now I´m going to check some of your posts which I´m pretty sure will be a delight.

  8. I am foremost a poet, with artistic directions in small crafts. While I did have to write some fiction for school and college courses my recent activity in flash fiction and the Ligo haibun have been spurred by becoming a blogger (about two years now). Would be nice if there were a different word to describe that – blogging. But until something better presents itself I guess that will have to do.

    My daily short(er) verse can be found here:

    Continued success in your all of your artistic expressions! 🙂

    1. Yes I agree – blogging is an awful word. So is texted. Both are ugly in sound and appearance. It would be a wonderful world where poets and artists were the arbiters of taste and decreed what words were to become the next buzz words. 🙂 I’ll go and take a took at your site now.

      1. My internet keeps dropping in and out this morning. I just went to your poetry and attempted to leave a comment on your poem about leaves and the fallen tree. The connection dropped out before it posted – I really liked the poem and was fascinated with the way you wrote it – stream of consciousness in poetic form – really powerful.

    1. That’s weird that you read that on my ‘About’. It’s what I used to have months ago. I changed it a while back. The new ‘About’ comes up when I click on my blog and go to that page. How truly odd. Glad you like what I wrote anyway. The new words are much more ordinary. Maybe I’ll change it again and go back to what I had originally. I really enjoyed your blog too and look forward to catching up with your posts.

Please comment. I love knowing what you think.
