  1. Hi Roshi,
    You wrote s poem for me once following an altercation I had with another girl at school. The poem was remarkable and I still have it! Hope that you’ll get in touch so that I can share it with you and catch up!


    • Sonia! I remember you so well. I often think of you…my daughter (aged 20) lives around the corner from Waverley now! I’d love to have a proper catchup: I’m on Facebook (Ro Fernando) – DM me, and let’s swap emails!
