Can You Show Me What I Still Can’t See

Bolgmas Day 18!!!!!!!!!!!!

The meaning behind your Blog name.

I am currently in love.

Not with a person but with a place.

Australia.  It’s a love affair I’ve had for as long as I can remember and has only gotten stronger over the years.

I had the opportunity to live in Australia less than two years ago.  Not as a young holiday worker but as a mature, out of work, leave of absence adventurer…and my love grew deeper.

Saying goodbye to my life here, I took a chance over there for six months.  In order to be able to keep those who were interested in my adventures in the loop I decided to (try to) keep a blog.  The biggest mistake was that I didn’t bring my laptop and was stuck updating on a mobile device…which, while doable, was not very practical…so I was rubbish at it.  But when deciding on a domain/web page name Upsidedowncanuck seemed appropriate…I was a Canadian in the land “down under”… (for those not in the know…Canadians are often referred to as Canucks)

And now I embark on a bigger/longer journey…with my laptop, a new camera and some burgeoning video editing skills which will help make my new adventures much more exciting!

Hugs and Love

    I fall in love with places, too! I was just about to write a post about how much I miss Montréal. I was only there for 5 days!!

    Originally, “…thenewsight” was a lyric to a song I wrote about my disastrous marriage – “Take a hammer, renovate this disaster, we’ll all live happily ever after, in a world where blindness becomes the new sight.” Then, when I had my injury that left me paralyzed and in a wheelchair, I took it to mean ‘a new way to look at the world’ which I had to do, seeing as I couldn’t walk, or do many of the things I loved anymore.

    The name of my Blog “The New Sight” actually came from a lyric in a song I wrote about my disastrous marriage – “Take a hammer, renovate this disaster, we’ll all live happily ever after, in a world where blindness becomes the new sight.” After I had my injury that left me paralyzed I kind of adapted it to mean “a way to look at things differently” – which I had to do now that I was three feet shorter and in a wheelchair. I was almost 40, with no kids, and no relationship. So I had to look at things differently. http://www.thenewsight.com.
