Bites and Pieces of America: Exploring food and friendship in Whidbey Island, Salem, Boothbay Harbour and Boston
Bites and Pieces of America is filled with pieces from my 2017 journey from Australia to the USA where I got to visit a dear friend on Whidbey Island, celebrate July the 4th in Salem the Witch City, visit puffins in Maine and meet a baby sloth in Boston. There are also many bites of recipes from the foods that inspired me along the way.

The Dracula Tarot: Exploring Bram Stoker’s novel Dracula through Tarot
It is late at night and I am sitting in a park. I have just begun to study Tarot and my mind is full of its wonderful imagery and symbology. I suddenly feel the penetrating stare of eyes. Not one or two, but many. I turn to face my nocturnal interlopers. I am pleasantly surprised to see a bat hanging upside down in a tree. We stare at each other, neither one of us moving. I realise the park is filled with bats – some resting, some flying. It makes me think of Vampires, it makes me think of Tarot. The Dracula Tarot takes seed.
