My Seasons: Weekly Photo Challenge

In Australia we are currently in Summer and I have found the temperatures, although hot, quite bearable. It certainly makes it easier to take, however, when there is access to water.

Personally I am in the autumn of my life

My mind remains in spring. There is so much new to discover and experience I just hope my winter doesn’t come too soon.

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.

  8. I’m in the same life season, Irene, but we’re still in winter as far as nature goes. We have, however, had a few days of tantalizing spring weather and I think we’re getting close to the real thing.
