    a wonderful thing to do these spontaneous sketches…so REAL, especially when you find them years later, having forgotten the moment….excellent donna

    Some weird things happen on the Hornsby train. A lot of homeless people spend time there especially in the colder weather, it makes for very interesting experiences for commuters and the weirdness of it all! I used to work at Hornsby Hospital, and we would spend our morning tea breaks laughing about the adventures of the Hornsby train commuters! Sorry, forgive my ramblings, your subject is great, I picked it as yours from the thumbnail – fantastic.

  • Well, she very well could of been…from memory. There was something desolate about her. Yes, it was a very interesting journey. Hope to do it again. Thanks Christine.
