My friends of the 70s and 80s.

Carmen Bonds


Carmen Taylor, or as she is now known now, Carmen Bonds. I have known Carmen since she was 15 years old. Her sis was my good friend. We kinda took her with us everywhere. I was so happy to see her recently and catch up on old times.


Marie and Bedilu


Two of my closest friends in Melbourne. Bedilu and I would sit and talk about the issues of the day, forever. He was a Ethiopian refugee and had taken up refuge in Melbourne. Marie on the other hand lived in Melbourne with her family. I used to hang out with her and her brothers. Their family moved to Queensland and I lost track of her, till last year when she found me on Facebook!



My aboriginal sister, Karen Taylor. We knew when we met that we would be friends forever. Both born under the astrological sign of Cancer, we had a lot in common. We currently don’t keep in touch as much as we should, but she is always in my thoughts. We shared a lot. This was the 80s and we were into clubbing and partying. We even brought along her younger sister, Carmen.
