Seniors Stories 2021
Ms FELICITY WILSON (North Shore)
—Speaker I want to acknowledge the terrific work of the one hundred seniors who have contributed to this year's edition of Seniors' Stories Volume 7. The theme of the 2021 edition is What's age got to do with it, and there are two entries from my electorate of North Shore. Peter Gill of Kurraba Point's story 'The Spinster' describes a family acquaintance who passed in 2004 but who has stayed in his thoughts. A woman who lived through the war shared insightful tales from the past and left an enduring impression. Paul Tavuzzi of Mosman wrote 'A Timeless Journey', a story of an artist who ponders the past, present, and future through his work. Who sees his life journey without a timetable. His engagement with and focus on his work allow him to look beyond age, reminisce, revel in his current achievements, and feel the thrill of what the future might hold. I encourage everyone to get a copy of the book, listen to the audio files, and engage with the many unique experiences and memories from seniors in our local community.
