Life is what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans


I wrote elsewhere of my brief flirting with turning my back on the world and joining the alternative lifestyle with the promise of getting away from it all, living a simpler life, and making new friends. Luckily, I stopped digging just in time - click here.

One friend from that encounter was Uta Langer who eventually rejoined the human race but not before we had lost contact. Some idle googling on a rainy morning came up with the above painting and this very contemplative piece of poetry, both by her, together with an address.

Lou Payet, Nicole Sullivan and Uta Langer, all of Yamba, in 2010


Like her, having plenty of time, I penned her a short postcard to let her know how much I enjoyed her poetry and to wish her all the very best.
