Born in a remote region of north western Victoria, Australia, the Muse’s childhood and growing up took place in a social context that no longer exists. Milk ,collected straight from the the milking bucket in a seamless aluminium “billy”. Food on the table was all home grown and home made. Clothes were home made. Everyone had chores to do and parents’ word was law.


Fortunately my educators were visionaries and I was schooled as part of the consolidation movement. A willing student, eventually a scholarship came my way. Thus began my ongoing search for knowledge and discovery that still remains with me today. Over time I have learnt much, which brings me to want to share with others the fruits of the years.

Take what helps, share your journey and discuss so we can enrich each others ageing.
