About Thomas Simunsen
(Show Details...)
Bloggers PhotoI have 2 passions in life the first is writing, short stories mostly which you may gather by my 'narrative' pieces Rent a Ghost, The Juke Joint, Return to the Juke Joint, Darkness and a few others. I have plenty more ranging from 8 pages to 12 but won't be posting them for obvious reasons. =)
I suffer from depression and poetry to me has been a great escape and therapy. Although in the words of my poetry teacher at University "I wish you would take your poetry writing more seriously!' it is usually said with a sigh. =P
My other passion is photography which is a great release for me. I take pictures of buildings, bridges, water, cars mostly anything except people! I have shared some of my photos with some of you but for others some of my better ones are on under my name Thomas Simunsen.

Currently I am studying professional writing at Victoria University with the aim to become a freelance writer and teacher (writing and or English). I also have aims to publish a novel (several novels in time) I am working on as well as several non fiction books I am researching.
I hope you enjoy my poems.
Tom Simunsen

I hope everyone had a special Christmas and a very happy New Year

If you have dropped by I thank you I haven't been ignoring anybody I have been away

I stayed longer than I thought I would as the place by the beach was hard to get away from

I took heaps of photos and did plenty of walking It was fun but as they say 'there is no place like home'

I may be going away for a few days around the Australia day long weekend again - back to Sorrento (24th - 26th Jan) (Australia day is the 26th Jan)

The place I stayed at sadly had no internet and I don't have a mobile internet usb stick

Anyway I have heaps to catch up with, which I will do over the next few days or more!

Catch you all later

Tom =)
