I began this blog in 2010 when living overseas and working as an education leadership consultant in the Middle East, after working in public schools in every possible leadership position in South Australia. At the time I named the blog Learnings and Yearnings to convey my passion for life long learning. I retired in 2012 having spent the final two years of my working life in the Autism field as Manager of Education services for a not-for-profit organisation. I was working on a Ph.D related to Autism at the time of retirement, but found after completing the first 5000 words and leaving the field I didn’t have the continuing passion needed to maintain momentum for the research, analysis and academic writing. I love this retirement phase of my life – the freedom to choose to do each day what I want to do, time to relish engaging with my grandsons, and time to explore interests such as gardening, 4 wheel drive travelling in the outback of Australia with my husband, reading and discovering the incredible line drawing art of Zentangle. I aim to learn something new each day until I die.
