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

Adventurous....not as funny as I think I am. I care about things. Mostly living things. Some non-living things. I believe in education and strongly believe that you are not fully educated until you step outside of your own little world. The brave may not live forever but the cautious don't live at all.

  1. 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.

  2. 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.
