It has been a full week since I have posted anything. We are all caught up in the whirlwind of life at times; work, family, friends. Sometimes it’s nice to just sit down and breathe. I just had one of these moments to sit and THINK! I went through photos from our Melbourne (Australia) trip. We had the chance to see our son, daughter in law and grandson (man it makes me feel old, saying grandson, and I’m not even 50 yet!) We went to the Melbourne zoo; and although I’m not particularly fond of zoos, it was a lovely family outing. I just scribbled this poem, and found that this photo my husband took was very well suited. The beautiful ape sitting, having a snack and contemplating, really moved me.

About Sharon Hughes
I love my family (husband Paul, and children; Hayden, Karen, Phil and Lisa and grandson Xavier); my faith (Christian); agricultural aid (particularly in South Sudan) and writing poetry. I worked in agriculture science for 5 years, I had changed my career for a while, but recently went back into agriculture science. I will continue to use my agricultural skills to attempt to train and empower others. I have been involved in an aid project in Patuet, South Sudan since 2007. I will share a little of all my passions here, all are welcome.
