Undulating – applies to hills more than anything else I thought and so I found undulating hills. The last perhaps being too steep to undulate in the true sense of the word – smooth, wave-like motion. So can the sea with its waves moving in a definite smooth wave motion also be classified as undulating – ups and downs, peaks and valleys. I decide that it can.

So perhaps ripples on a pond or river also work as they too have ups and downs, a wave-like motion.

Music too has wave like motion, ups and downs, highs and lows and I have certainly heard the expression “she undulated to the music”.  I remember at a dear friends 60th birthday a number of us were undulating to the music. Moving in a wave like motion.

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.

    And yet, even though they all undulate, the first one is the best!

    • I agree totally. I was a day late with killing my friends. My husband was the one to get stung (I think they knew I wasn’t going to hurt them). In a lot of pain, he did the job for me and now all but three wasps are dead. Those three are still tending to their nest and I should spray them but………….

        Honestly, I know where you’re coming from, Irene. But I’m still glad your husband is around to do the dirty deed: wasps aren’t people-lovers. He will probably get rid of the remaining trio …?
