I was happy to think that Aussie author Kim Kelly thought I was worth asking to participate in her Reflections of You, where she interviews writers, readers, and whoever she thinks has something to contribute.
This is Kim’s post

REFLECTIONS OF YOU
LINDA

One of the best things about the internet and all our fast and far-flung communication these days is that you get to meet great people you otherwise might never have crossed paths with. Today’s intrepid Reflector is one such person – Linda Visman.

I can’t even remember how it is we actually met – online, that is – but I had the lovely pleasure of meeting her for realz at a library event at Lake Macquarie a few weeks ago. Linda is a writer, reader and blogger herself, and she’s a big-hearted woman, generous in spirit and mind.

And here she is answering our Big Seven questions on life and love…

  1. Reading this post filled in some of the gaps as your memoirs stopped when you went to university. I think many of us growing up in the 50s and 60s led interesting lives as it was the dawn of a new age of questioning and refusing to accept the norms of the time. To be separated from your children must have been very hard. There’s definitely a book in there but I feel if I wrote a book about my life there are too many things I don’t want people to know. That’s why people write fiction I suppose but then people will still try and find themselves in works of fiction especially if is not very complimentary.
    Enough raving. I enjoyed the article.

    • Thank you, Linda. I had to think about whether to include a couple of things, but decided people need to know that all lives have their ups and downs, and perhaps to show also that we are not always what people surmise us to be.

  2. Beautiful interview/bio, Linda. I love your heartfelt reflections on place and family. It’s infused with genuine love and honesty. Our journey’s aren’t always easy, but your story is a testament to the power of love to see us through. 🙂 ❤

  3. Thank you for sharing your reflections with us, Linda. I enjoyed learning more about you.

  4. Thank you for sharing 🙂

  5. Another piece of wonderful writing Linda. I’ve missed seeing your pieces and hope you are well. Linda 🙂

    • Thanks Linda. Good to ‘see’ you. Yes I’m fine, just busy. Not much travelling either & it’s months since I saw my boys & their families.
      However, we are taking time next month to visit Tassie. Our own holiday before we get too old or tired. 🙂

  6. Thank you for sharing your life with your readers, Linda. 🙂
