Yagoona , is a real place

As my first ever “blog” the words required may be strange.
Australia has many unique sounding words , originating from our First Nation people. The had no written language, no pens, no paper!

Even though we have paperback trees, the bark was used for wrapping babies and food. I an not indigenous , but a boat person , arriving 13th February 1842, into Sydney harbour. The family tribe is Celtic, both Irish and Scottish.

Yagoona was called Irish Town, so for 50 years we lived there without ever seeing a native. Duck creek, at the bottom of our street, was were we walked, played , got lost within time , along its whole length. We were the natives! I feel very Australian, very white with black stained blood.

I hope you like what I write each Thursday, Think Day!
