There is an art to the everyday 💚
“If you write one story it may be bad; if you write a hundred, you have the odds in your favour.”
Edgar Rice Burroughs
Having escaped from the city to live simply & creatively in a country-coastal region I hope to write more. Maybe better if ERB is to be believed.
You can become blind by seeing each day as a similar one. Each day is a different one, each day brings a miracle of its own. It’s just a matter of paying attention to this miracle.”
I’m inspired by daily life, past & present, people & places. My favourite word is happy.
“Books are the quietest and most constant of friends; they are the most accessible and wisest of counsellors, and the most patient of teachers.”
Charles W. Eliot
My first and enduring love is books but I’m also a devotee of internet, email, e-books, social media: any sort of information and communication. I have eclectic reading tastes but people’s lives, stories, journeys, quotes and wise words particularly appeal to me.
“Be faithful in small things because it is in them that your strength lies.”
I love old objects and ways; local food and markets; home made, grown and cooked.
“Writers are magpies by nature, always collecting shiny things, storing them away and looking for connections of things.”
Time moves on. Things change. Capturing the minutiae of day-to-day life in stories & snapshots is my everyday art.

In case you missed my Gravatar blurb: After a decade of living in tiny apartments in the inner-city of Sydney, Australia with my husband referred to in my posts as the Gorgeous One (G.O.) while I worked in corporate-legal and the G.O. in civil earthworks we relocated 500 kilometres north in December 2015 to our home in the Nambucca Valley to follow our dream of living simply and creatively. We travelled around Australia in 2016. Now we work on our 1930’s house, have a vegetable garden and a dog plus share a flock of backyard chickens with our neighbour. These days I’m a horticulture student, something I dreamed of doing for many years. From time to time I write about day-to-day life, past & present, people & places, and take snapshots with my smart phone.
