Deeply engrossed

No talking at all, puzzling

all preoccupied.

About Irene Waters 19 Writer Memoirist

I began my working career as a reluctant potato peeler whilst waiting to commence my training as a student nurse. On completion I worked mainly in intensive care/coronary care; finishing my hospital career as clinical nurse educator in intensive care. A life changing period as a resort owner/manager on the island of Tanna in Vanuatu was followed by recovery time as a farmer at Bucca Wauka. Having discovered I was no farmer and vowing never again to own an animal bigger than myself I took on the Barrington General Store. Here we also ran a five star restaurant. Working the shop of a day 7am - 6pm followed by the restaurant until late was surprisingly more stressful than Tanna. On the sale we decided to retire and renovate our house with the help of a builder friend. Now believing we knew everything about building we set to constructing our own house. Just finished a coal mine decided to set up in our backyard. Definitely time to retire we moved to Queensland. I had been writing a manuscript for some time. In the desire to complete this I enrolled in a post grad certificate in creative Industries which I completed 2013. I followed this by doing a Master of Arts by research graduating in 2017. Now I live to write and write to live.

    • It was. It is a particular type of jigsaw where the picture on the cover is not the picture that you make. The one they were doing was the picture that one of the people on the cover could see. The completed one was a mystery and you had to do the conclusion to the mystery.

    That kid is smart for the age he looks to be.

    • I think so. Communication was limited as he did not speak any English. What I did notice was that he had perseverance to deal with puzzles and he usually solved them. Other six year olds (and older) that I know don’t seem to be able to concentrate on one thing for long periods- giving up and moving on to the next item. I wonder if it is the difference between children who grow up with iPods, iPads and computers as opposed to those that don’t (like this child).

  5. Great! To ,me the first picture especially captures the word. The subjects leaning away from eachother and even the onlooker is engrossed in his own world.
    Preoccupied, fabulous!
