Hello! My name is Jo and welcome to The Emerging Chook.
I was born and grew up in the countryside of South Australia. Farm girl and country girl at heart. I would spend my days at school, helping with farm chores and hours in the kitchen baking or sewing or craft with my mum. These were some of the most memorable days.
But I took my mums life for granted, thinking she would alway be there for me, that we would always have those days in the kitchen, sewing room or just be there in general.
Her life was cut short by cancer. My life changed. I went backwards and sidewards, instead of forwards. I thought I was dealing with losing her, but I wasn't.
So eventually, after some prodding from a dear friend I started writing about it, it was cathartic. I've started to rekindle my creative spirit, sketching, photographing and from this The Emerging Chook has been born.
This blog is about healing, dealing and emerging into the world again.
