My brother had a koala bear that he loved the hair off, refusing to sleep without Char until he was an older boy. One of his sons was similarly attached to his stuffed dog which started out as quite a fluffy hairy animal but not is somewhat threadbare with its hair worn off. These animals acted for both as a security blanket. With the animal present no harm could befall them, even allowing them to sleep safely.

For others walls are needed to give security.

For others the wall is not enough.

From the youngest and poorest to the wealthiest and most important security is important to all.

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.

  3. I think the stuffed dog provides the most security of all – peace of mind that all is well with the world. The more bedraggled he gets, the more the proof of love. The other security options provide a false sense of security and tell everyone else to stay away – nearly a provocation.

    It is important and yet can mean something different to each person.
