K-TEAM SOUTH AUSTRALIA

I guess that’s how it is with one’s local stamping ground. I grew up in Somerton Park which is about a ten-minute bike-ride from Glenelg. Even today, though I live in the Adelaide foothills, I go to Glenelg to shop, have coffee with Mum, and many times I drive through Glenelg on my way up north to Salisbury, or to the Barossa.
So, while tourists snap their memories of Glenelg frozen in time, for me images of my childhood and grown-up years remain fluid, layers in my head and marinated with the changes and experiences over the decades.

‘Good idea,’ was the reply.
With an overcast day, what better idea than to hike in Kuitpo forest. Being the sole-K responsible for the tour that day, I had the final say.

So, begin the adventures of the K-Team SA.

Day 1

Fleischer paced the campsite glancing left and right, up and down. No Amie. After a fruitless search for the lad Joseph Smith, not much older than Amie, a chilling thought crept up on Fleischer. ‘Not Amie too,’ he murmured. He cleared his throat. ‘Nah, don’t be silly, she wouldn’t’ve gone far.’

THE MEANING OF LIFE

What am I doing here on Earth? What is my purpose? And a sadness creeps over me. Am I going to wander this vast empty space alone? All my life? Forever? I put down my spoon of my untouched porridge. Must be something in the water. I’m not hungry today.
