Hi, welcome to my website

Margot Tesch

Working as an IT professional for decades was a great career. I loved it: worked hard, earned a good living and made some great friends. But I decided to walk away in 2008. It was about re-engineering my life for a healthier lifestyle. It wasn't a minor change, it was mega. I joined my husband Chris, managing a large cattle property in South East Queensland in the Traprock.

Oh my goodness.

I had no idea when I made that decision, just how difficult it would be to adjust to living remotely – 60km to the nearest shop! Especially for someone who measures in the 98th percentile for Extraversion! Nor did I appreciate the challenges I would face running a primary production enterprise. I was compelled to blog about my experiences.

Thus my website was born.

Years on, I'm still driven, but now my energy is channelled into learning more about life. I'm consumed by ideas in philosophy, religion, neuroscience, addiction, cultural theories, feminist theory ... and many other 'ism's. These themes weave their way into my writing.

Ultimately I want to write to explore ideas and characters, i.e. take the creative ideas that come to me and explore them. Every idea is an opportunity begin a new adventure in my imagination.
