Caroline Jones A.O. – Collection

Caroline Jones is a writer and broadcaster who worked at the ABC for more than 40 years – on current affairs programs such as THIS DAY TONIGHT, FOUR CORNERS and Sydney morning radio.

For 8 years, on ABC Radio National, Caroline presented THE SEARCH FOR MEANING programs, in which hundreds of Australian men and women told stories of their lives. Four popular books were published by ABC Books from transcripts of those programs.

Caroline’s fifth book became one of the 10 best-sellers of 1998. Published in print and on CD, it is called AN AUTHENTIC LIFE -FINDING MEANING AND SPIRITUALITY IN EVERYDAY LIFE.

In 1988 Caroline Jones was made an Officer of the Order of Australia. In 1997 she was voted one of Australia’s National Living Treasures. In 1998 Caroline was appointed an Ambassador for Reconciliation by the Aboriginal council for Reconciliation.

Caroline often visited St. Mary’s Towers in her own search for meaning. Like so many who find there way to the Towers, she may have been touched by the natural world and its beauty. The following sketches reflect some of her experiences and are reproduced here with her kind permission.
