Columbus Ohio

I am an Australian citizen who now resides with my wife in the great State of Ohio U.S.A. following our retirement
I have an interest in writing verse as well as poetry and in my spare time, I enjoy the peaceful surroundings of my woodwork shop where I create turned items on the lathe and enjoy the creative arts of that special piece of timber.
In the vast expanse of my retired life, I find myself immersed in dream time - a realm where the burdens of my professional life have gracefully faded, leaving behind only the memories of accomplishments and camaraderie gained. As the sun rises each morning these days, I wake with a smile, for the word "work" no longer carries the same definition or weight of obligation but instead whispers the promises of pleasure and purpose.
In this newfound chapter, I am free to savor life's simple delights - the warmth of the morning sun on my face, the gentle rustle of leaves in the breeze, and the sweet melody of bird songs that grace my ears.
