Reaction to and reflection on Knowing Friday, by Susan Fielding.

Born in England, having lived in Wales, Belgium and NZ, Susan currently lives in Melbourne with her husband and three adult children.

She worked in the business, political and not-for-profit arenas combining her years as a full time parent. Her last role was Chief of Staff for a Federal Senator. A life threatening illness was the catalyst that allowed her to indulge her passion for writing, using poetry as a cathartic expression of the rehabilitation process, from wheelchair, to walking frame, stick and finally good health.During those years she joined the local writers group described in Knowing Friday .

Excellent! A wonderful observation on the unconscious rites and rituals of a group, many of which I have experienced myself.

I have been a member of a long standing writers group that finally faded into oblivion...and "Knowing Friday" is so true to th e shift and shuffle of that membership. I am impressed that she was able to capture all of that in so few words.
