One favourite in amusement venues of old, was a ‘hall of mirrors’, with its promise of visual delight in multitude reflections of each own self. In Daniel words one might find muse of another kind, by seeing through glaze of panes around each of us, the images of those less knowable till with writ of words, empathy encapsulates experiences shared, and are lastingly delightful.

They say writings can make you smile, laugh, feel romantic,
dream, cry and angry. This piece is a moving one, Daniel. May George rest In eternal peace.

I am saddened to hear of the passing of George Yapao. George and the late Tand Waim were my best friends at UPNG. May his soul rest in peace.

Daniel, it's good to see all you are doing to promote writing by Papua New Guineans. Keep up the good work.

I liked the title of this post. Often my daughters ask me what I am writing on my PC. Don't think I will ever write 'My Book' but eventually hit on the idea that if any writing was my own then I would make the file heading in CAPITALS.

So no matter what the topic if I see a file name in capitals it's one of mine. Have told the girls not to throw away my discs—floppy, CD and now USB after I die but keep them safe.

Who knows one day a great grandchild may be researching her ancestors and find some snippets of interest.

Noted during recent celebrations in the media the publications of quite a few humble letters from World War 1 military personnel often to their loved ones. In these letters you find the nitty gritty of real life experiences rather than the over view of great battles etc.

So right - write.
