Five Words April: Thursday’s Special

In response to Paula’s prompt where she gives a new set of words to choose from. The entrant can choose one word or all, one photo or many that show any or all of these words: projecting,    arresting,  pastoral,  convex, communal.

In pastoral Australia, far removed from bright city lights and the sophisticated entertainment available there we turn our hand to singing, dancing and comedy.

Communal enjoyment was had (possibly helped by the wine) as they watched those they knew make total idiots of themselves.

A classic love story sung to the tune of John Brown’s body. Me the male lead eventually being thwarted in love. The policeman swung into action arresting me and marching me off stage.

Don’t worry. I finally got my woman and the villain banished.

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. Commenced a masters by research in 2014.
