Week 24 Challenge – Travel

Week 24 Challenge – Travel

Week 24 Challenge Travel . Do you have a favourite travel story that you would like to share? Or do you have a family story around travel? In my family there is a family legend that my great great grandmother travelled from Sydney to Kerang on the Murray in a group with other families and that all the children travelled in the rear of the caravan of wagons out of earshot of the adults. Family History research shows this to be untrue but it is strange how these stories come into being and we are left wondering how they started and if there is any truth in them at all.



WEEK 23 CHALLENGE – we are making progress This week something I hope you will have fun with this. Take a photo on your phone of the room you are in or a favourite room. Explore the room as if you’re seeing it for the first time. Pretend you know nothing. What do you see? Who is the person who lives there?vintage-boys-room

You can really play around with this one ….See yourself in a different light…how does that compare with how you think about yourself


Challenge Week 22 – Movies.

Challenge Week 22 .

What was the first movie you remember seeing? Was it at the pictures or at the drive in or on TV? That opens the door for a lot of memories.

The first movie I remember seeing was Fantasia in the mid-1950s . It was filled with such wonderful music and I think it was at the Metro Bourke Street, Melbourne.Micky.jpg

I loved the dancing crocodiles and the  hippopotamus it was a marvelous introduction to classical music.  I was scared witless part of the time and thoroughly entranced the rest of the time.

Going to the movies in those days was quite an adventure. All dressed up in best clothes and lunch in town at Myer Cafeteria before the matinee session. It was an experience which  helped turn this writer into a lover of the cinema and live theatre.

Silky web spun soft and light 
Perfection in every point 
Images reflected dull and bright 
Diamonds not of coal but water
Ethereal in design spun at night
Ribbons of steel trap the unwary  

Wound around in circles slender
Enter here and fight for your life  
Bound around the twigs at every height
Surprise at the spider's strength and slight
