Tullawalla: Booklet #9

 

Hello dear readers, friends, and followers. I’ve got 24 days to go before I fly to New York, and my progress is improving everyday. I’m keeping myself busy, bike pedalling (On Yorkie) exercise sessions and walking 8000 steps a day, In between, I’ve been preparing my new booklet of poems. I’ve just finished the manuscript (Phew and yeah !!), and this one is called, “Tullawalla: “Leafless Branches”, No more hospital appointments, and I’ve been given the all-clear to fly away.  Like my other 8 Booklets, all money’s that I collect from the sale of these booklets goes to the Geelong MS Charity Shop. The list of my 9 booklets is below. These booklets are all printed here in my little writing studio/haven, put together by hand, and they’re a foolscap size folder of 21 pages and 40 poems in each booklet

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.

      1. I’m going to New York for long (5 days), but I know It’ll be awesome. I’m mainly going to Philadelphia (3 weeks)to see my cousins, and that’s going to be a thrill of a lifetime for me.

    1. Yes there is Paul, I do have a PayPal account, that you can pay into via a card. With shipping and a donation to the MS Society the cost is about $40 US, for 3 or 4 books,.. I’ve not price them for whole 9 books,.. I shall have to have to investigate, re: get them all weighed at the P.O. I am taking quite a few bundles to the USA, it’ll be cheaper (I hope) to post them from there. Send me your postal address via my email. ivorrs20@gmail.com and we could work something out 😉☺️📧

      1. I’m so sorry! One of my friends just turned 30 and she has MS. Finding the right treatment etc has been extremely difficult for her. She’s been fighting it for 5 years. Five years ago her doctor told her that within a year she’d be in a wheelchair and within five she’d be dead. She’s still walking and living life. I’m so glad she proved that doctor wrong. I wish you all the best.

      2. Oh, I’m so sorry to hear about your friend, MS is definitely an awful disorder. Sounds like your has a good attitude and is coping ok. Being positive is half the battle, and smiling every day with your world, is great for everyone around her. Here’s a couple of poems about my Carole, she was a lovely lady to look after over, during the 30 years of her MS. Cheers 😊💜❤️❤️
