We share the days and nights together, the mornings and the afternoons,
the kitchen and the news and weather, the birthdays and a hundred tunes.

Oh, but it’s not easy to express the way I feel. No, it isn’t easy just to show my love is real.

I like your style of conversation,
the way you walk and what you wear. I like your special sense of humour and jokes that only we can share.

Oh, how I love your eyes; they speak more than words of the song that is you inside.

So much of you is in my breathing. You’re written into every scene.
I love you more than songs and singing, I want to stay inside your dreams.

ALWS 5/10/23

To say I've been inactive on my website is a serious understatement! I've written nothing here since early 2021. 

So, does this mean the world has stopped for us, that nothing is happening?
A major event for us in 2022 was moving house in October. We had been in Modbury Heights since July 1993.Now we're back in Klemzig.

In May we travelled to the Mentawai Islands in Indonesia, seeing work supported by Australian Lutheran World Service. Dorothy and I are Ambassadors for the ALWS programme, Lives You Touch. We are encouraging people to leave money in their will for the work of ALWS. We committed to leave a third of our will many years ago and hope many others can touch lives in this way.
Since then we have visited Box Hill & Loxton with Jonathan & Julie Krause as part of the Asante presentations, promoting the cause of ALWS. Still to come this year are Asante events in Toowoomba & Rochedale (Nov 26 & 27) and Perth (Dec 10)

Looking forward to seeing many people on these occasions.
