Crossing the Rubicon

Rubicon, Victoria
April 1951

We lived about five meters from the Rubicon River and unlike Julius Caesar who crossed the Rubicon once;
we had to cross the Rubicon whenever we left the house.

At Aunty Doll's, 1951  
Julie, 1951
Sheila, my mum in 1951

This seemed to set the pattern of my life.
It seemed I had many Rubicons to cross.
I've adopted the Rubicon as my river totem.
