About the Author

Kg. Lyle was raised in a country town in Victoria. He is the fifth generation of his family to have grown there, and now the seventh generation of the family continues in what is now a commuter abode for Melbourne. Kg. experienced the interdependent farming, secondary and tertiary society of rural towns as he grew from childhood to fifty years when circumstance called him to move. The valley of Bacchus Marsh, in those days, still held benefits for growing minds in a safe community. At age fifty, having exhausted his value to his family and community, he ventured forth into the very different culture of inner suburban culture Melbourne. He was fortunate to find sanctuary with people who exposed him to newer thoughts and understandings. He was introduced to the Usui System of Natural Healing called Reiki and became a practitioner of level 1 in 1992. His teaching master, Klaudia Hockhuth of Bungarie, elevated him through second degree before initiating him to master level shortly after. Kg. Lyle’s background was as the child of self-employed small business entrepreneur parents, who instilled community service as an ethos of responsibility to the society which supported them. He first started writing verse in the 1970s as he observed the growth of his town from its rural state into the urban reality of its present. Some of his work was printed in the local Express newspaper as commentary upon the local scene and administration at the time. Heritage has always been a stimulant to Kg.’s imagination as history is the base of the world we have now. Time moved on as it does, and with it, new people passed through the line of his life, each one gifting him with different aspects of living. Most of these gifts have stayed within him, even as the people travelled their personal paths, as he did his. Today he finds himself as a retired pensioner living with his lady of choice, Suzanna, in the beautiful region of East Gippsland, Victoria, with its natural charm of verdant bushland and gentle rivers, albeit challenging winter climate. It is in this tranquil paradise that Kg. has found the space to collate the journey of his writing. He hopes others enjoy the trip too.
