In this category I am going to feature stories about locals. These will be lives of people who are just like you and me, who I have encountered in the different locales I move in. Some initial stories will be inner Melbourne folk, others will be Mt Hotham villagers and others still will be random people I meet.

Learning is the elixir of life. It keeps you current, connected and curious for more. Many have written on this topic and I am no expert, but the way people learn fascinates me. Finding what is required to facilitate the “aah-haa” moments is what keeps me in the teaching, learning game. Whether they be big kids or small, each and every one of us is forced to stay learning in our ongoing world of change. This part of this blog will explore that, and find stories that inspire … reminding us of what is possible through human endeavour.
When people talk lifestyles, the accompanying pictures often have deck chairs – but also palm trees, poolside waiters and drinks with cocktail umbrellas propped in the top. This photo, taken outside a restaurant in Telluride CO, was not posed. There were others occupied by skiers taking in some sunshine, but the waiters and exotic drinks were absent. So, you will notice, were the crowds. It was a gorgeous day and I think the closest run was called “see forever” which aptly fits this view.
