Returning from the Wilderness

It’s been almost 2 years since I last wrote an entry on my Blog, and as I open up my computer I wonder where I should begin as the last article that I published was 2 years ago in Apr-2013. It was the same month that I began my new job in hospitality working full time in hotel reservations at the Ramada Encore Hotel Dandenong.
Ramada Encore Hotel Dandenong
The oldest person in the organisation and an outsider - not something that the feint hearted should try, the experience has been eye opening however I will be finishing up Friday 10th April and am looking forward to returning to world of words, research, history, and ancestral mysteries. 
But the question as always is where do I begin? I have so many projects on the go, some almost complete, some driven by unknown time lines as interviews with family elders slowly creep along. Photos are sorted, stories are recorded and corrected. Trips are made to track down remnants of buildings and/or the owners of elusive family photos.
