My Journey

This section of My Sydney Paris Life contains posts about issues and events that are important to me or affect me in a meaningful way.

At the level of family and close relationships, I write about concerns many of us face, regardless of where we or our loved ones live, though at times my situation is complicated by being part of a blended, global family. These posts include my experience moving my mother to assisted living and clearing and selling my childhood homemusings on memory and the challenges elderly parents (and their adult children) face when it diminishes, and my own memories of my late husband Gary and my late brother Rob.

Beyond the immediate family, I share thoughts about broader issues that matter to me. This can be anything from moocher madness and ideas for how to provide hospitality to guests to more serious thoughts about my experience as a corporate executive in Asia Pacific which influenced my long-distance view of some U.S. attitudes.  I also include a three-part series on ‘Control Is An Illusion’  and what I call the truth/privacy spectrum.

My Journey’ also contains posts about my goals and aspirations, whether trying to find more time to writereducing the stuff in my life, or contemplating a new adventure with Clive as we find ourselves drawn to moving overseas to his hometown of Felixstowe, England.

You can find all the posts about My Journey here or by clicking ‘My Journey” under ‘Categories’ on the left-hand sidebar.

Cheers and thanks for visiting.

  1. Hi Carolyn,

    This is Sue from your FWF class. Wanted to send you a quick note to tell you how intriguing this blog looks and that I intend to spend more time exploring it. As a student, I lived with a family in Preston, Lancashire and spent 6 months in England. I’ve been back twice; I really do love it there, so it is great fun to read about your life. What an interesting one you are living!!

    I understand you are traveling today, homebound to the UK. I wish you and your family a safe journey. “See” you in class!

    Warm regards,

    • Sue, welcome and thanks so much for your comment.

      How cool about your own experience living in England! It’s great you’ve been back here multiple times and hope you continue to return.

      See you in the Free Write Fling and thanks again for taking the time to visit my blog 🙂 Cheers and come back to the UK soon!
