Before Armaid - Terry the Opera Singer

Before Armaid - Terry the Opera Singer

I’ve always been loud and could carry a tune. Louder than most people when they open their mouths.  And I’ve always been fairly articulate with pronunciation. Who knew that it would be a great combination for singing – loud, articulate singing that could reach the back of the hall. Throw in a 200 year-old musical score with words in a European language and we’ve got Terry doing opera.

It is a depressingly modern condition in which the tendons around the thumb inflame as a result of repetitive strain — in my case because I had, for hours a day over years of a life, tapped that right-hand digit onto the glass of my smartphone.

Before Armaid - Diving Story #2

One mid-afternoon in my third week of offshore life aboard the ship, the deck and air was at its tropical hottest and I was ready to take a dip into the clear, warm waters of the Philippine Sea.  But instead of just swimming along the surface, I decided to strap on a SCUBA tank and go a little deeper. I decided, in fact, to go all the way down to the bottom.

Terry's Travels - Manuka Wood

On the smaller end of the physical scale is the Manuka tree, bush. It’s a shrub that can grow quickly from several inches tall to about 15 feet and under the right conditions it can grow into a slender tree of 30 feet or more.

Peace on Earth

“Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one’s life.”
