This prehistoric seed-bearing plant

lived when dinosaurs roamed

It’s not a palm

but an unrelated cycad tree

Not to anchor tents though welcome it would be

but rather to jump off the cliff

Attached by ropes

Yes an abeseil anchor it be.

The inside of my teapot

Hosts what look like a map of Australia

although a little skewiff

It came from Norway so perhaps it is understandable.

Cee got this right

A llama own those teeth

And what a face to go with those choppers.

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.

  2. So many great photos here. Love that llama with his smile showing off his big teeth. Sometimes they have the most extraordinary eyes. As for Muffin’s blue – I suspect you will find out and not be thrilled. The carved and pierced wooden bowls – outstanding though they seem a tad bit leaky.

    Thanks for illuminating us! With regard to Muffin – rubbing on new jeans is an idea…or did she sit on some blueberries?
