Tullawalla And A Dragonfly

Weekly Prompt: Photo prompt for this week, Right Place Right Time

I’m presenting pictures here of “My Home”, and feeling incredibly fortunate, that I happened to be in the right place at the right time, two years ago, when I was lucky enough to find this little abode for sale. And on inspection I immediately feel in love with the place, knowing that this is where my soul could finally be at peace, and I came to engross myself in this writers haven that I had dreamt of, and knowing that it was now going to become a reality. Thank you to Linda, of Spiritual Dragonfly, for inspiring to do this post about “My Place”, and I hope all is well there for Linda over in Carolina, after coping with Hurricane Florence.

G'day, and welcome to my blog site. My name is Ivor Steven, I live in Geelong, Australia. I'm an ex-industrial chemist, and a retired plumber, and a former Carer of my wife(Carole), for 30 years, who suffered from severe MS. I Write poetry about those personal thoughts, throughout and beyond my life as a Carer. I've been blogging for over 2 years, and writing poems for 19 years. Of course a lot of my poems are about my favourite subject Carole, but since I've been blogging my writings have become quite varied, humourous, mystical, observational, and even a few monster/horror poems.

  3. It’s funny..when I was younger I wanted a big, fancy house. I owned a beautiful, Second Empire home when I owned a B&B. But upkeep was enormous and had to sell it for a place in the country. And although I still dream of that house and wrote a fictional story within its walls, there’s nothing like living in the country. I wish I had a cozy house/nook like yours..an inspiration to your wonderful writing. I did turn one room into a library, way down in the left corner of the lower level. But it brings me joy every time I write in it. Keep it coming my friend.

      1. I’ve shared your home photos before and they definitely depict a warm homeliness. I’m glad you were in the right place at the right time when your little writer’s haven came up for sale 🙂

    1. Oh, after all those lovely compliments, I’m feeling fabulous thanks. My little abode is homely and welcoming, small and comfortable, full of memorabilia and artistic works of “his and hers”.
