I live at Port Stephens. I grew up in Sydney, in a little suburb called Punchbowl which was leafy and had wide streets, back then. I was nurtured well and nature was kind to me physically. I ate well and read widely. I could swim brilliantly, though I was not much of a runner, but I was good at soccer and played centre half. I could read the game well. I went to the school for the gifted and soon learnt there was plenty of people smarter than me in this world. I was well clothed and well housed but over the years I suffered an increasingly burning confusion about who my natural mother might be. This blog is about my search for my natural mother and a lot more.
