“The great age of the earth will appear greater to man when he understands the origin of living organisms and the reasons for the gradual development and improvement of their organization. This antiquity will appear even greater when he realizes the length of time and the particular conditions which were necessary to bring all the living species into existence. This is particularly true since man is the latest result and present climax of this development, the ultimate limit of which, if it is ever reached, cannot be known.”
― Jean-Baptiste Lamarck

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.

  5. Amazing. Thought at first they were hot springs but I’m thinking one wouldn’t want to take a dip in one of these. 😉

  8. You probably can’t get closer to the origins of the earth and still live. Thank you for wonderful photos and Lamarck’s thoughtful observation. Would love a certain orange haired politician to take this to heart. (Ugh – there I go – politics again.)

    • Wouldn’t we all like him to take it to heart. Hopefully, apart from sending us to war and creating racial tensions and the rest, he is hamstrung in what he can do. From across the ocean I am getting the impression that he is all talk, little action and a lot of hot air. You on the ground know a lot more than me.

  9. Irene you have reminded me that I must place these steam Waters on my bucket list. This is a remark about the steamy waters and not Irene Waters 🙂
