Yolanda Isabel Regueira Marin
Bio: Let me introduce myself, Yolanda Isabel Regueira Marin. Yes, quite a mouthful. You can call me Yolanda. So nice to meet you. I was born in Madrid Spain and immigrated to Australia with my parents when I was four years old I speak and write Spanish fluently and dabble in Italian. I have grown up surrounded by Spanish culture and traditions and have integrated them into my life in the land down under. I guess you could call me a Spanaussie. I live in beautiful Sydney, Australia and am a Licensed Conveyancer. For those of you who don't know what that is ... I practice Property Law and all that it involves. I have many interests one of them being the theatre both performing and attending. I am a member of a community theatre at which I perform. I enjoy photography, trying to capture the place ... the moment, through the lens of a camera. Hand in hand with this is my love for travel. I feel I have learnt so much through experiencing the different cultures and the colors of the many countries I have been lucky enough to have visited. My greatest passion is writing. Life is my inspiration with all its beauty and its ugliness. I have always enjoyed writing, but started my blog as a way of externalising my thoughts and emotions. Whilst I enjoy writing prose, poetry is my first love. I love the freedom of expression it allows. Writing allows me to immerse myself in another character or travel to another world. It feeds my soul and lets my imagination take flight. It is as essential as breathing. I live, I love, I breathe .... a mixture of unique and ordinary. A little bit mad, but sometimes very sane. Life has brought moments of overwhelming joy and dark despair .... I travel through this journey that is life, with one eye open and the other closed to unnecessary reality. "We are all in the gutter but some of us are looking at the stars." Oscar Wilde Take my hand and join me in this journey that is life.
