It has always been my privilege to have a song in my heart.
Music and words have always held magic. I have no memory of not being able to read either. Music happens to me. Poetry is a way to clear my heart & head of difficult feelings. I also use it to celebrate beauty, strength and mystery. I am a mother of four, grandmother of four (and a bit) and a military wife of 28 years.
Written for all who are connected to currently serving members of a defence force, "Military Wife" was inspired by my experience, and words used by women to describe their experience - women who are members of the Australian Military Wives Choir.
A collection of poetry written to clear my heart while my husband has been deployed on active service with the military. The collection spans service between the years 2006 to today, and covers deployments to East Timor, Iraq, Afghanistan and more.
