Tag Archives: lasting effect


Today’s prompt has left me cogitating: The children I have borne are my greatest gift to the world. I hope bits of me will live on through them. I admire each of them in different ways, and I know their love will live on through their own children.

A very small legacy will be the trees I have planted throughout my life. In every home I have lived in, in Australia, I have planted a lemon tree. Of course there have been hundreds more trees than that too. Others won’t know who planted them, but I will know I have left this planet a better place.

Christopher, my husband, will leave many beautiful paintings behind and they will continue to bring joy to many, so he will never be forgotten.

I have just completed, (yes, again), a YA fantasy fiction. I shall contemplate whether to be brave enough to have it self-published. In the meantime it will go off to an editor for the final polish. Will this be good enough to be remembered? Big question.

The Synopsis:                                                                                                                                             ‘Angels behind the Scenes’ is a fantasy novella written for you, whether you are young or old. Heaven and Earth merge in this gentle tale, allowing you to ponder on the after life. Remember you are not alone. Love and joy are not old-fashioned values, just the necessities of a full life.

Don’t forget about me.
