Ducks In A Row

No, I don’t mean the wild ducks swimming happily in the lake in our front paddocks. We’re well and truly engaged in the ducks-in-a-row stages of preparing to depart from Australia.

My apologies for the lack of updates lately, but the reasons are many and varied and include the new release of one book and a release of a 3rd edition of another one plus lots of other writing assignments.

Freshly baked Irish soda bread and cups of hot tea

We’ve been on a bit of a baking kick as we sip hot tea, eat warm bread, and make lists of things to do. We finally have the darling house on the market, but the prep stages prior to listing took SO much longer than we had expected and had us quite frazzled. Now I can happily report that we have begun packing books and deciding what furniture to keep while we wait for the agent to work his magic and I will be contacting ticket agents in the next week for preliminary pricing.

Since I am (in the midst of all this craziness!) shifting back to journalism and photojournalism, I will be uploading articles and photo essays as often as I can while still ticking off items on the moving to-do list. It’s going to be a finely tuned balancing act!

But there will be exciting new places to examine, new people to meet, and new events to cover in the coming months and I am quite looking forward to those challenges. Big Old World — here we come again!
