Typical Gemini, with the concentration span of a gnat & not one for sitting still. My old Da used to say that "you're a long time dead". So my mantra is get busy living.Please join me for more at brizzymaysbooksandbruschettasite.wordpress.com
Event:
Books donít take up all the room in bed and they donít snore
Good news for bookaholics!

The annual Omega Writers Bookfair will take place on Saturday, 14th of March, at the Hills Church, 79 Queens Road, Everton Hills.

I asked a girlfriend from the north side of Brisbane if this event was worth a visit and her reply was "May, I always come away with far too many books". Music to my ears... So who are the Brisbane Omega Writers?

They are a group who love words and use their gifts of communication and storytelling to impact society in world-changing ways. They exist "to educate, support and inspire Australasian Christian writers towards excellence, impacting society with grace and truth. We want our words to change the world".
