I’m back in South Australia for another stint pet-sitting my daughter’s dogs, cats, goats and hens 🙂
Yesterday I had a wonderful time meeting two combined U3A writing groups at Littlehampton in the Adelaide Hills. Spectacular scenery along the road from Gawler and yet another group where I felt completely ‘at home’. Once again, inspiring stories and poems written for the occasion and it was great to be able to put some faces to names I already knew as well as meet lots of new friends. And, I gave myself a pat-on-the-back for finding my way along unfamiliar roads with lots of twists and turns 🙂
I’ve called my new friend Little Hampton 🙂
While talking with the group, I mentioned that often I’ve been inspired by a comment, a phrase or a word while talking and listening to groups and on the way home the beginnings of a children’s story came to me . . . you never know where ideas are going to come from!
