Two different perspectives of the Hastings Waterfront. One is a different view from the main jetty the other a view, also from the main jetty but in a different direction, on a very cold misty morning when the water was like glass and the mist was screening the background.
Autumn in the High Country
The two paintings below were inspired by a holiday in Bright Northern Victoria just as Autumn was waning and a wet winter was not far away. They depict two perspectives of the Autumn colours typical of that region.
State of the World Poetry
The poem below was written for one of Jonathan's Writing Group assignments. The subject was "The Edge of the World". It highlights some of the issues in the World today, and if there was an edge to this World why we might want to jump off.
Projects in progress
The Van Bladen Deception:
When two young boys discover a sealed metal box in a dry lake bed and take it away to see what it contains thay unleash a deadly train of events that places them and various other people in extreme danger.
The events following the discovery attract the attention of ASIO intelligence agent Geoffrey Logan. When he starts investigating what has been happening he treads on the toes of his own boss and attracts the attention of an American billionaire and his associates. That group of high profile businessmen appear to be working on a major project to benefit all mankind but their leader and some of the group members appear to act in a manner that is questionable.
The action takes place in Australia and in the beautiful US city of Seattle.
A Melbourne radio talk show host is targetted by a secret group to promote their activities in moving the government to improve the justice system: to make the penalty fit the crime. In doing so they open a can of worms that leads to lethal consequences.
The Twilight Years
The Twilight Years relates Jonathan's experiences working in the Australian Healthcare system as a Caregiver. Jonathan describes the difficulties, pleasures and learning experiences in caring for aged and disabled people in their own homes. During his 10 years in this role he met many wonderful people and helped them manage various medical conditions - Parkinsons, MS. MND, Cancer Cerebral Palsy and more - as they did their best to enjoy their Twilight years.
Jonathan commenced his working life in the agricultural industry as an accounts clerk. After five years the urge to travel gripped him and he headed for England, set London as a base and proceeded to see as much as he could of Britain, Ireland and Europe. His funds weren't too flash so in between trips he worked in casual jobs in London. As he travelled both ways to the UK by ship he managed to see a bit more of the world during ports of call and he actually circumnavigated the world by sea.
On his return he commenced a career spanning 30 years in the automotive industry with one of the major manufacturers. When he reached middle management one of
his roles was as an advertising manager and it was in that role that he developed a love of creative writing. He completed 2 tech school courses - novel writing & short story writing to hone his skills.
On leaving the company he took on a more relaxed job as a copywriter and started writing poetry and short stories in his spare time and then wrote his first novel which he ended up shelving after some poor reviews . He then got serious and wrote Mandate and published it as an E book.
When the small marketing company that Jonathan worked for closed its doors he had a big career change and worked as a caregiver in The Australian Healthcare Industry for 10 years. That experience enabled him to write and publish "The Twilight Years". It highlighted what it was like caring for aged and disabled people in their own homes. The book was originally published in paperback and is also available as an E Book. Just click on the button on the HOME page or in the BOOK section of this site.
