Life in Ky

A spur-of-the-moment house purchase led me back to my home town in northern Victoria. Almost three years later,  life has settled into a quiet rhythm. 

The sky seems bigger and the air seems fresher here.  Birds and wildlife are abundant. The traffic is non-existent, but I can walk most places I need to go anyway. I’ve got room for a veggie garden, though I’m still working on my green thumb. The winters here are a bit brutal, but I love the hot summers. And I love hanging out with Mala, my slightly crazy, four-legged friend liberated from the local pound.

Slowing down has given me time to get involved in some community activities. I’m now the curator of the Community Gallery at the Kyabram Town Hall  (keep an eye on our upcoming Art for Everyone project). And I run a meditation group that meets weekly at the local community centre.

I’m getting to know a few people in town, and rekindling some old friendships. And I get to see friends from the city when they come up for weekend breaks. 

While I’m still running my digital content consultancy, training is now the main focus. It involves less travel than project work—usually only a couple of trips each month.
