Sure, I’ve just published ’60 Questions, Insights and Reminiscences’, but there’ re plenty more of the latter I’d like to share.
Do you ever look back on your early times, and vividly recall a favourite outfit?
For me, it was a two-piece suit: really, just a sleeveless top and gathered skirt, a fashion of the day. What made it special?
Ice-creams! The top and skirt were adorned by applique ice-creams, as convincing and charming as could be! And how they stood out, against the plain rosy-red fabric!
And what a conversation piece it was! Grown-ups would often ask me if they could have an ice-cream!
Will the kids of today look back with affection on any of their gear? Will they, too, reminisce?
At every chance, my husband likes to Ron talk about our newest book, ’60 Questions, Insights and Reminiscences’, which will shortly become available through Amazon.com.
Many readers of this blog will know that Ron is the creator of the Grand Organ in the Concert Hall of the Sydney Opera House.
While he speaks with enthusiasm by phone, it’s the in-person encounters which provide him with the best opportunity to show what we’ve done. That’s one indisputable virtue of having a proof copy!
Yesterday’s meeting with a friend provided the perfect opportunity, and, happily, he responded with equal excitement, interest and positivity.
Although the words and ideas in ’60 Questions….’ are mine, Ron has magically enhanced their presentation by his skillful, innovative editing; not to mention his attractively designed, unusual cover with compliments those of our ‘Life and Love’ series of modern, Australian Short Stories.
If you’re reading this, please spread the word!
What makes YOU happy? Success, a compliment, fruition, relief?
I’m happy today because I’ve just published my fifth book, ’60 Questions, Insights and Reminiscences’. I’m doubly happy because those respected few who’ve read it are clearly alive with enthusiasm!
The happiness of publishing this book grows when I consider the possibilities. To be recognised and liked by the wider community, especially by discerning readers, seems mind-boggling.
And then, there’s the commercial side. A popular book would translate into dollars: perhaps enough to build our long-cherished dream of a music room. Our home is small, and what a joy it would be to have a beautiful room with high, ornate ceilings, and good acoustics to compliment our musical activities. We could have a Grand Piano in one corner, and comfy lounges for listeners to sink into. Heaven!
Will it happen? Who knows? It’s all up to you, and the other readers of the world.
Whatever hand fate deals me, at least I can dream!
