For the climb we must be prepared.

An apple  – no two

one for the appetite and the other to record in photographs our journey there.

Along the way we hope that we don’t meet any apodal critters

Though I don’t mind snakes most of the time.

Time for some apelike behaviour along the way

After that kind of day I feel slightly apathetic

and in the apartment more apathy appears.

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.

  1. Wonderful photos and the poem is clever. Though having snake draped around my neck would make me apoplectic.

    Lived the photos. I especially like that you are not afraid of ball pythons. My son had one we named Anna – she was a sweet snake, loved to be stroked and kept warm, slept with us in a pillow case when we were without heat for two weeks after an ice storm.
