Description


Stories of the life of Helen GordonThese stories are about places you have always dreamed of, and experiences that you never could have imagined.Helen will take you to a tiny Pacific island where life is so simple and relationships are so intriguing. In Scotland, you can join in a wedding procession headed by bagpipes. Or live in a caravan with gypsies. Fear for your life on a hazardous mountain trek in New Zealand. Walk in exquisite gardens in Israel. Experience dramatic events within a tiny community. Laugh and cry with the strong aboriginal women whose culture opened another world to Helen. Sit with children as she teaches how to make paper from the abundant spinifex in the surrounding desert. Watch as people are assisted to run an office even though they have no previous experience. Be part of a committee to plan activities to establish a new cultural centre in a mining town. Dance with Helen at a festival in a country town. Share the excitement with others as you paint a large mural. Or learn how to make earrings in a equatorial village. By contrast, sit with Helen as she quietly prepares for her own death. Most of all, take away with you, memories of the astonishing people who were part of her productive life. Beyond these adventures: Why did Helen do all this? And how did she do it? The answers can be found in these pages.
