Artist's Description

She comes (back) to Australia every so often. Loves surprising us. She was so successful again, this time! She carried in her luggage a beard and a paper miter and surprised my father, who is (90 and) in high care, in the retirement village, knocking on his door disguised as Sinterklaas (St Nicholas- the inspiration for Santa Claus).
Those 51 years have shot past, since she, and her husband and then 6 year-old-daughter, and he (my father) and my mother and I migrated to the other side of the world and explored the local beaches, near the migrants’ camp.
Her husband has passed away. His wife, my mother, has passed away.
Yesterday, we had such good fun!! We joked so much and reminded each other of all those things we did, when we first arrived in Sydney, in 1956. Coped with so many horrible situations and had so much fun!

You remember so much detail, she told me!
