Last week’s Quirky Question was, “Where are you from…and where are you now?” Here’s the winning comment, from Shirl:

“I was born in Melbourne, Australia. Because my dad was a policeman, we moved every time he had a promotion, so it was country, city, country, city, country. I remain in the country in a town called Horsham, in Victoria, Australia. My heart is where my family is. I lost my mum 4 months ago and dad last week…both are still here in Horsham, so here I shall remain. I love this country of mine, as all your other writers love where they are. That’s what makes culturalism special. And because sewing is multi-cultural, we all have something wonderful in common.”

Thank you for your gracious comment, Shirl—look for an email about your free eBook.
