The best of times and the ..

worst of times, called up the coast as Dad had supposedly taken a turn for the worse and may not see out the week (apparently) so i drove up met with Jace and went to visit the Man (pics will follow), to have a almost perfect magical afternoon with the promise of more to come, left me and Jace cackling about events long into the evening.  
              I promised to return in the morning with his wife and my Mum with me. That was this morning and although to see my Dad still so much in love with Mum warmed my heart and to see them both seemingly fit and healthy was excellent. But they have sold the house, another chapter ends memories stretching back over 30 years for 4 generations.
Sniff, Sniff never mind life and i move on but i have scored a pic or 2 and a basket and a pot or 2 woohoo ..... and the car i didn't mention is like the elephant that farted then left the room ... conspicuous by it's absence...

Tom quotes reposted

Tom Robbins Quotes speak for me about Love

i could of posted these individually but felt they go so well together and Tom is speakin my thoughts and he does it so well, there are other Quotes of his that also deserve to be read. i will post more 'tis significant that my 1st ever post on this blog involved another Tom Robbins Quote. and my Blog title is based on a Tom Robbins Quote, actually the last quote in this post

"When we're incomplete, we're always searching for somebody to complete us. When, after a few years or a few months of a relationship, we find that we're still unfulfilled, we blame our partners and take up with somebody more promising. This can go on and on--series polygamy--until we admit that while a partner can add sweet dimensions to our lives, we, each of us, are responsible for our own fulfillment. Nobody else can provide it for us, and to believe otherwise is to delude ourselves dangerously and to program for eventual failure every relationship we enter."
— Tom Robbins

"Our lives are not as limited as we think they are; the world is a wonderfully weird place; consensual reality is significantly flawed; no institution can be trusted, but love does work; all things are possible; and we all could be happy and fulfilled if we only had the guts to be truly free and the wisdom to shrink our egos and quit taking ourselves so damn seriously."
— Tom Robbins

"Our individuality is all, all, that we have. There are those who barter it for security, those who repress it for what they believe is the betterment of the whole society, but blessed in the twinkle of the morning star is the one who nurtures it and rides it in, in grace and love and wit, from peculiar station to peculiar station along life's bittersweet route."
— Tom Robbins (Jitterbug Perfume)

"Love easily confuses us because it is always in flux between illusion and substance, between memory and wish, between contentment and need."
— Tom Robbins (Even Cowgirls Get the Blues)

"When two people meet and fall in love, there's a sudden rush of magic. Magic is just naturally present then. We tend to feed on that gratuitous magic without striving to make any more. One day we wake up and find that the magic is gone. We hustle to get it back, but by then it's usually too late, we've used it up. What we have to do is work like hell at making additional magic right from the start. It's hard work, but if we can remember to do it, we greatly improve our chances of making love stay."
— Tom Robbins

"Love is the ultimate outlaw. It just won't adhere to any rules. The most any of us can do is to sign on as its accomplice. Instead of vowing to honor and obey, maybe we should swear to aid and abet. That would mean that security is out of the question. The words "make" and "stay" become inappropriate. My love for you has no strings attached. I love you for free."
— Tom Robbins (Still Life with Woodpecker)

still rainin

been rainin'  all day i have done stuff with more stuff to do .

it's raining again

as it pisses down outside i smile and remember how much we need the rain, my veggies are in, lawns have been cut!  Mmmm love the smell of freshly mown lawn and although i have the weekend free work still seems to be occupying my thoughts so to alleviate and or ameliorate the situation i will give it an hour of my time to give it air then blow it away 'til Monday morning, the responsibility of the lives of others can weigh heavily at times but i will endeavour to address what i can and not concern myself about the remainder ..sounds so so simple as i now have some new pics in my new 'puter i will post one 


phone pics

Run and won

went to the traditional cup day gathering and had a lovely time at the BBQ caught up with old friends and met a new one. Back home by 6pm ready to receive a visitor of my own. an early night and a well earned much needed sleep ensued. Brekky minus the sour dough bread eeewwww. but we managed then waved my friend goodbye and got stuck into the small mountain of work that was needing my attention, organized all the stuff needed to take me through to the middle of next week woohoo. am looking forward to a cpl of days break away from work and all the city stuff ...we shall retreat to my former mountaintop retreat then maybe dip a line or walk a deserted beach i am sure the reality will match my expectations.

Cup Day

Everything in Melbourne stops for a horse race i am not a punter and although i have been to the races both city and country a few times it means little to me. But chance to visit friends ,have a barbie and catch up with ppl i haven't seen in at least a year and maybe longer in some cases all because the horses are gunna run around the track. the world can move in mysterious ways at times.
