- Catherine and 3 adult daughters in Australia, Catherine only in New York. Writer (66)
Hello from groovy Brunswick East!!
I am Catherine, 65, single (divorced), former high school and teacher of English and French and of English to adults. I am a writer of fiction with publication in Australian literary magazines. I enjoy reading, art, theater, films, travel, all kinds of music, yoga. I love living in Brunswick East, 2 minutes walk to Lygon Street: every kind of restaurant/take-out from Japanese to Lebanese to Thai to Italian and more, great coffee, supermarkets and all shopping nearby, 20 minutes to city by tram, 10 minutes to Carlton, University suburb and our 'Little Italy'.
I have 3 adult daughters. One, Natasha, has lived in Brooklyn for several years (she has a Green Card.) She is an established artist having mounted installations in Australia, Europe, Asia and New York. She has one permanent installation in New York, details at www.natashajohnsmessenger.com
Natasha has also completed her second Masters of Fine Art in film directing and screenwriting at Columbia University. Genevieve, screenwriter and civil celebrant, and Julia, singer/songwriter/producer, live in Melbourne.
My previous exchange destinations have been London, Paris, Shanghai, and New York and Brisbane and Iluka, Australia.
The first one in New York was non-simultaneous: I moved out of my apartment to offer hospitality to my exchange hosts, who then accepted employment elsewhere in USA so I didn’t get to stay at their home. Another was also a non-simultaneous, more convenient as I was traveling when my hosts’ daughter and friend stayed in my Melbourne apartment, and in exchange my daughter Julia stayed at their home in New York in my place. In 2013 I spent a wonderful month in Manhattan, a simultaneous exchange. I love New York city and can’t wait to visit again in 2017.
Love to walk and get to know cities, explore interesting neighborhoods, visit museums, go to theater. Need to be in easy walking distance from shops, transport etc.
