So my roots are gone

But it was an unavoidable thing. My Mother has no retirement funds as, for the first years of her adult life, she was a stay at home (Washington DC) Mum. She had no income and when my parents divorced in the late 1970s the law didn't cater for wives suddenly needing a support system. This was to come later and with it abuse of the system but that is another rant. SOOO She was left with two kids and no income or superannuation.
Fast forward 40 years (OK 37 years) The farm is my mother's only asset, but the place she and I managed to find healing (Separately) I maintain she went nuts and I found connection with the land I loved so dearly. B

BUT, with my mother aging.. and her shoulder surgery...she is now running short on working years. So the farm had to be sold.

It breaks my heart but she walked away yesterday. The only Woosang left in Australia is ... me.
The farm in Victoria is long gone and now the farm in NSW. There is only me.
 Im Glad Tim and Drue got to see it before its demise.

                                                             Vale Woosang Farm.


  1. That is a beautiful farm. That must be difficult to let go of. In some attempt at absurd optimism, "they" say that as one door closes, another one opens. Hopefully that stands true and something good comes of this. Hugs.

  2. Yvonne,
    I fell in love with Woosang Farm on your Flickr page - now it will always be with me. Some things are never lost.

  3. Yvonne,
    Last night (on your Fickr page) I fell in love with the farm. Now it will always be with me. The Woosang Farms of our life are never lost. Thanks for sharing the farm.
