Headline“LIfe is for living; life is an adventure.”
Independent, happy, healthy and creative, enjoying these years so much. I love my family, my friends, my life here in this beautiful place. I write, edit and paint (pastels) and would love to find a friend and companion who wants to share the pleasures and mysteries of the known and unknown with me. My photos are recent, ranging from 2015 to now. I'm a country girl at heart, born on a sheep farm in the outback. Have lived overseas for many years in my early adult life, and haven't travelled much since then. I'd love to do a little more overseas travel- UK, especially the north and Scotland, the islands, Norway, Iceland... I'd like to see more of Australia too.
But I'm also happy here in this funky town, nestling in a rich river valley, folded by mountains.
I paint in pastels, have created some beautiful landscapes which are much admired, and would love to sell a few more so I can paint some more!
I also write memoir, and am writing the story of my life as a child and my mother's story, running a sheep farm on our own after my father left.
Editing is my bread and butter and jam and cream; I've helped many writers publish, gain their degrees, and perfect their writing; it's a lovely way of sharing my love of words.
Nothing missing, really, except a soul mate to share things with.
