(Bev) Author, Editor and Publisher – I grew up in a suburban country-style area and my parents divorced when I was young so I was in an all female home. We moved to Adelaide city in my early teens and I attended Business College prior to working in the corporate arena. I met my life partner, Graham, who is from a business farming background and there were a lot of challenges in learning to communicate in a male personal relationship. The path to co-authoring our website and eBooks with Graham has (to my surprise) been all my life but focused 10 years ago with our website to share stories with humour to encourage and inspire people. My motivation is an image of a person on a train or bus travelling home after a busy day or quietly sitting re ...more

Matthew's apparent humble acceptance of his sister's strictness and quick judgments then the savvy way he leads her to understanding and higher ground so wonderfully depicted by Richard Farnsworth and Colleen Dewhurst in the movie. I love Matthew for his all encompassing, unconditional love of Anne (Megan Follows) which she so desperately needed yet he also challenged her to be a better person and rise above her ego and pride (probably from low self-esteem borne out of the many critics during her loveless childhood years). Great moments seeing Marilla coming to the realisation the reason why Anne aggravates her so much is because Anne is a mirror reflection of the "I did it my way" attitude of Marilla! Must get that DVD out and find out if my Mum still has the original book which I laboured over for so many hours escaping my own challenging childhood!! (less)

I figure if I don't have something worthwhile I feel inspired to share then I just need to let it go and carry on focussed on what's next in my day. I often get inspired by people who come my way unexpectedly while I am busy living my life. Listening to their situations and how I can encourage them helps me recognise the reality of simple needs we all have.(less)

Beverly Dowdell Just uploaded new story "Great Expectations .. is there a key to great relationships?" Check it out on our website: www.aworkinprogress.com.au. Fantastic photo by Graham of pink peach tree blossom. Graham also gives a very valuable insight into what makes him feel complete as a man and being in sync with the balance of nature he sees around him every day. 35 years of knowing him - married 29+ and I am still learning what makes him tick! Men are so very interesting .. especially when I shut up and listen!
