Writing a journal is creative. It’s instinctive — your pen moves across the page almost of its own volition, no thinking deeply, or censoring thoughts, or pausing for the right word. It’s showed me what it means to be alive, and helped me to flourish in many ways.Continue Reading
Hello and welcome!
I’m Colleen Reagon, writer.
I’m also a traveller, amateur photographer, enthusiastic gardener and aspiring cook. I read a lot too. And Italy and all things Italian have a huge part of my heart.
This story and website began with a desire to live a passionate life. And this odyssey of change includes the way I live, work and see the world.
Work is about helping you communicate effectively with your audience — your potential clients, your customers, your suppliers and your colleagues. Even your loved ones. My task is to ensure that your words convey their intended messages in a compelling way.
Change is about moving with my husband and our princess dog, Lily, from suburban Adelaide, Australia to the south coast of New South Wales.
Because travel is a big part of living a passionate life, you’ll find stories about my travels along this coastline of Australia and about my Italian journeys too.
My odyssey is also about living with purpose, which means sharing the things that matter to me with the hope of inspiring you — no advice, just stories about my new life, my challenges, my travels, and examples of effective communication that you may find useful.
I hope you’ll find something on these pages that strikes a chord in you. And please, if you have something to share, send me an email. I’d love to engage with you!
