 Without the radiant energy emanating from the sun the grapes would wither on the vine. Our alimentary tracts would benefit from neither the wine or fine food to be consumed under the arbour of the remote vineyard. Made all the more remote as a result of an earthquake which destroyed the major highway from the city turning a couple of hour journey into more than eight. The conifers almost give arboreal symmetry which hide the house’s frontal view from full view. The young lad is frontally exposed and heading towards the bean bag body chairs. Will he sit and be enveloped?

In response to Paula’s Thursday’s Special


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.

    :O :O I am sitting here dumbfounded :). I was sure that this time nobody would be able to pair all five of them in a single meaningful photo. Oh, Irene, how I missed you! 🙂

  3. Wow! That’s some story – but it seems the serenity to be had here is well worth the long drive.

    haha, that is one amazing story! 🙂 when Paula mentioned: ‘you can combine all 5 words in one image’, I thought: ‘yes, right, you wish!’ and here you go, you did it!

  5. Nice one! And, I’m assuming “frontally exposed” means the same thing…um…down under? 😀
