(Conversations with your children often bring up long forgotten memories)
Summer 1978 – The Golfer and I were the best parents in the world!
At least that’s what we were told that February evening as we all sat near the front (not up the back on the grass) of the Myer Music Bowl waiting to hear this sung in real life
Sailin’ away on the crest of a wave, it’s like magic
Oh, rollin’ and ridin’ and slippin’ and slidin’, it’s magic
And you and your sweet desire
You took me, oh (higher and higher, baby)…
’Our Big Girl’ has been home for a short while – this time last year they left town (towing their home behind them) looking forward to doing ’a big lap’ of Australia.
So far they’ve had the time of their lives.
Yes, so far, is what she said – because decisions have been made and they are going to be off again fairly soon to give it another go and see some of the things they missed.
Impressions so far – contrary to what some may say – everything’s alive out there.
Australia is a living thing!

It’s Monday morning again and I’m sitting here in the quiet with that early cup of tea I enjoy so much wondering about how I’ll feel when the words Good Bye are spoken this time. We’ve given her ‘roots and wings’ , she’s acknowledged them several times , so I’m comfortable waving her off again….maybe it’s just me wondering if time is running out – wondering if I’ve lived all my dreams, – are there any more waves for me to crest’?
How about you – do you ever feel like life is passing you by
