I am a high school teacher of English and History. My passion is writing. Samples of my poetry and articles on a diverse range of topics (such as Feng Shui, who were the Druids, Buddhism, Ancient History, the role of women during the World Wars, Green Computing, Literature and Music reviews) may be found on Helium under the name of Gemma Wiseman. Some of my "little" poetry appears on The Poetry Showcase, under the name of AuraGem.
For more of my writings, some links to Australian artists, interesting and unusual Australian places, visit my blogs:

The Meaning of New Year
The object of a new year is not that we should have a new year.
It is that we should have a new soul.
