Some great memories and a great year working in aged care. Loved every minute of it, especially meeting all the wonderful clients.
At the close of the nineteenth century, London was the largest city in the world and Australian artists such as Tom Roberts, Charles Douglas Richardson and Arthur Streeton continued to be drawn ‘home’ to the centre of the British Empire. A succession of artists who had trained at the National Gallery School in Melbourne during the 1880s sought to establish themselves in the artistic hubs of London and Paris, travelling with ambitions to advance their skills, gaining access to both recent developments in art and the bounty of European collections. The return of artists such as Roberts from London and E Phillips Fox from Paris heralded significant periods of change within their artistic circles in Australia, influencing both their students and their peers.

Toastmasters – finding my voice, is a blog and a personal journey of Monica Shanahan’s experience through Toastmasters, and to challenge herself, in new situations. Since public speaking is something that Monica has always avoided, due to her at times, pronounced stutter. You will find that she uses a specific speech technique called ‘Smooth Speech’ which helps with her stutter, and keeps her speech fluent.
