 “There are not more than five musical notes, yet the combinations of these five give rise to more melodies than can ever be heard. 

There are not more than five primary colours, yet in combination they produce more hues than can ever been seen.

There are not more than five cardinal tastes, yet combinations of them yield more flavours than can ever be tasted.” 

― Sun Tzu, The Art of War


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.

    You have more photos in your files than a stick could be shaken at! You lucky thing …


    • I started as a youngster. My grandfather was an enthusiast and used to develop his own which of course caused my brother and I to want to do it too. We are both photograph mad although he has the good equipment and the technique, I just like something, shoot many knowing there will be one that will work. Problem is I find it so difficult to throw anything away…:)


  2. I doubt that I ever will as I know I would regret it. Already I have used some photos that most people would have trashed. 🙂


  3. Interesting quote choice but on reflection really brings fullness to the word, Fun photos as well.


    • I found this quite difficult without showing pictures of hundreds of different animals or plants (but couldn’t find a quote) and I didn’t want to get into ethnic or religious diversity and all the quotes were emotive airy fairy things. I did find a lovely quote which would have required a photo of the edge of a forest then lawn and I just couldn’t fine one. You are going to be saying my comment reply is longer than your posts (I don’t mind long posts by the way) but you probably don’t want long comments. Cheers Irene
