Story
Tagline
Fell in love once, only once, when I lived in New Farm
Introduction
A childhood of mango trees,
knee high floods and
pushbikes without helmets in Cairns

Retired and look for dead people in my spare time.

Why look for dead people ?
They are usually easier to find; they tend not to move around and the tree is growing.
