the unique voices of my story

THE STRENGTH OF OUR MAGAZINE lies in keeping things real. We’re able to do this by celebrating the adventures, achievements and bravery of people we can all relate to – everyday people, told in their voices. The features and anecdotes are real, and the emotions are experienced and felt by their respective authors. The submissions we receive from our readers for our regular My Story column are core to this emphasis. We receive hundreds of submissions, each one detailing a moment in time that left its author smiling, or with an impression or insight on life that’s hard to forget. Reading through each submission is like taking a dive into a series of conversations, each one entertaining and uplifting. This month’s My Story by Richard Whitaker, ‘A Sign From Above’ (page…

Tigers Rising We are all assaulted with the daily barrage of news about the loss of Earth’s biodiversity from fires burning uncontrollably in the Amazon to the destruction of wildlife everywhere. India is proving that it doesn’t have to be that way. The recovery of its tiger population (News Worth Sharing, November) is a clear demonstration of what can be achieved when a nation takes strong action to preserve its environment because everyone is diminished whenever their natural world disappears. MICHAEL WOUTERS Magic Scissors I have been an avid reader of this magazine since my teenage years and my interest in reading it has not dwindled. The article ‘One Cut at a Time’ by Lam Lye Ching (November) impressed me the most. Hairdresser Lex Low, who is trying to make life dignified for marginalised…

news worth sharing

Women of Worth Give Back to the Community Women of all ages in the town of Putaruru on New Zealand’s North Island are discovering the joy of actively giving to the community while building self-confidence. Aged from 17 to 65, the women are part of a Transform Aotearoa (TA) charitable trust programme appropriately titled ‘Women of Worth’. The women come from diverse backgrounds with some having experienced difficult and challenging times. At TA they find self-esteem and a sense of belonging. After completing one of the development programmes on offer, they become ‘Women of Worth’ (named by participants to reflect what they had learnt during the programme) and meet informally in a friendly, social atmosphere. Their activities include distributing free firewood from local farms to women who need it, maintaining the giant flower…

IT WAS A LONG TIME AGO NOW – a summer’s morning in 1959 – when I was an 11-year-old boy living in the outer suburbs of Melbourne. The area located over our family’s back fence was a large stretch of apple and pear orchards and this formed an idyllic playground for the neighbourhood boys.

We had made friends with the local orchardist and struck a deal with him. In exchange for us patrolling the area and keeping other kids out, we could help ourselves to all the apples and pears we wanted. We were his unofficial…
