Do what you love and love what you do…the rest comes naturally.

What the ‘rest’ is I am not quite sure – but if you don’t follow the first bit one assumes ‘it’ doesn’t come naturally…

For me, it’s writing.  I love to write. It is soothing, infuriating, calming, frustrating, painful and confronting. Putting pen to paper as they did in the old days has been replaced by pixels to screen, but the creative flow remains the same.

Team O’Connor’s genesis was in the form of a digital post card, chronicling our European travels with a toddler in tow. It quickly became a labour of love, a ball and chain, a hypnotic tranquiliser capable of lulling me into another paradigm, away from my roles as mother, wife and daughter.

And now it has come of age…

The blog has been nominated under the parenting category in the Sydney Writers’ Centre Best Australian Blogs for 2012 competition. The People’s Choice awards are driven by you, the readers. A click of your mouse on the above hyperlink, a valid email address and a vote for Team O’Connor may just see the rest come naturally.
