born 1947 in Western Australia .. Dalmatian/Croatian family . I am a thus "babyboomer". I have two children and three grandchildren and i am still married to the girl I met in 1966..... love sweet love !!
I am a semi - retired bricklayer still doing the occasional job . I self published my first book of poetry in 1982 and my fifth and most recent booklet (of Haiku) last year 2018.
I got caught up in the ukulele revolution in 2011 at the Balmain Ukulele Club and started setting a few of my poems to music. Not easy! . I made a DVD of one poem in 2013 called "putniks" -- a family history . It is on you tube . I also recorded an album of my poems in 1992 .
I have been inspired by the fabulous songs of Tina D who has recommended this site. I am basically a dilettante so it is great to hear what other people are doing.
This also looks like a real challenge.. fifty in ninety . Wow !
