I include here examples of writings I've created, and a few that others have created for me, since my childhood. Putting them together will help weave a story of great personal changes, punctuated by historical processes of decolonisation in Ceylon (Sri Lanka) where I was born in 1947, and emigration to Australia in 1969. They are a great help in overcoming a memory I have, perhaps deliberately, not encouraged to remain sharp since moving countries.


I hope this story can encourage a sense that a person living in the late twentieth and early twenty-first centuries does not need to feel hostage to their biology or particular family environment. The power to change is a great privilege and responsibility of our times.
