I was reminded of my passion for Aboriginal art when I was going through my photo files so, again for something a bit different, here’s a collection of photos I’ve gathered over the years of Aboriginal art – some are rock art, some are paintings. I hope you enjoy them.

You have no idea when you’re going to get a fibro flare-up or how it’s going to affect you which … More THE FIBRO FOLLIES
We are coming to the end of the Islamic holy month of Ramadan (or Ramazan as it’s called here in North Cyprus) when people fast from daybreak to sunset. Families fix up big meals first thing in the morning, then get real feasts going at the end of the day. Given that no food or … More AN ISLAMIC FESTIVAL IN NORTH CYPRUS
