This occurs when you don’t have anything on your mind.
You've stopped worrying about every thing around you.
you forget you left the washing out,
you don’t bother to put a heater on
because you can stay warm
under the bed covers.
There is no
with a friend for coffee?
Can wait for another day. Check the letter box?
Nobody writes any more. Some vacuuming?
You swept under the table the day before.
Lunch? Sit up and watch TV with a sandwich and a fruit.
Water? There’s always a bottle at hand on your bedside.
I am a French-born Australian linguist who loves writing about multicultural experiences. Taught English in Zambia and Papua New Guinea, gained a Doctorate with UPNG. In Western Australia I worked with migrants and Indigenous communities in Kalgoorlie and Roebourne. In charge of Amnesty International WA, then moved to Adelaide. Short-listed by The Human Rights Commission for the Literature NF Award for the anthology I edited with the Multicultural Writers Association of Australia, I later published my memoir. Volunteered with the Writers Centre, became active with PEN.
