as a year ends

i have been quite reflective this last week and with the year drawing to a close it seems a good time to see how far i have come in 12 months. i am ecstatic with the progress i have made and the possibilities the future holds.i am in a great job where i feel emotionally rewarded for the work i do . my friends have been brilliant with support and understanding throughout the year. Speshally Big Jim, since the work commenced he has mentored me through the maze. and my significant other has been a revelation while growing in stature she has helped me along the path with trust and truth and open and honest communication. all this together has given me a huge inner smile that seems impossible to remove so to all that have helped me along the path . i say   Cheers

Life carries on & on & on

I love my life . not measured against the life of others but according to my standards these seem like the best it has ever been all the ducks are lined up and although i dont doubt the brilliance of what is , i remember all that has gone before and truly appreciate each and every moment and i think it is sheer madness no too. but hey thats just me..

day off

My week off turned into a day off as i am called upon to fill in. i really dont mind in fact i do love what i do for a living . probly 'cos it all comes so easy no effort required . can be tough at times but with excellent frames of reference and a great life outside of work it seems i am managing all these disparate branches with a minimum of fuss

 woohoo for me
 maybe a pic to celebrate

one day later

well the boxing day test saw Straya decimated in less than a day .the boy went top watch at the "g" yesterday i am tipping he was noty happy with how the wickets tumbled like a wonky house made of playing cards .... nevermind all else seems well in the world so i will leave you with seasons greetings and trust you all have a safe 2011 when it finally arrives.

Fill in or fill out

i have recently been preoccupied with forms and have been responsible for the completion of said forms but i am not sure if i meed to get them filled in or filled out by the relevant authority i have asked around but seems to be a bit of an either or type thing so i will look further into this as forms are becoming a almost everyday work type activity .. i sorta knew i was in for some semantics based dilemma when i signed up for this gig. anyone have any ideas?

spray

great spray

Stencils that stick/the more it changes ....


once in a while the writing on the wall becomes the writing on the wall as a word or image resonates deep within me .i spotted this in a laneway in Clifton Hill a cpl of weeks back and it held my gaze for what seemed like an eternity before i broke away eager to snap a pic. this gets me where i live ...

once again it is as before .

New Pics

slept well

after a weekend that involved the highs and lows that i have had to traverse in my own emotional landscape, i feel that i have emerged with a healthy sense of perspective based on the life i currently lead, i have a brilliant job that gives me the opportunity to assist others to improve their lot in life with just a little bit of help,Socially i have a network of friends that are honest , open and supportive and i feel i am one of the luckiest ppl i know.So as i face another day at the coalface i am aware of the position of privilege i find myself in and am so appreciative of lifes rich bounty and try to share and infect others with the joy of life i feel. Not easy to do but i continue to spread the joy one moment at a time while taking note of how far i have come this year so to those that read this knowing me join in the fun and spread the joy

break 2

needed a break from the grind of chasing rabbits around and about with my focus dwindling i thought this may help me refocus for the last little bit of duty for the day, seems life carries on and on and on regardless of how we tinker around the edges you can either give up a little and let the flow take you or as i have chosen remain resolute in the fight against the dying of the light. and as i believe tis the only true course i set my sail in the face of a strong wind with my sights firmly set on a bright day/week/month/year  ahead

day off day on

got back to my email after deliberate shunning the service yesterday, as i reflected on times past. it worked a treat as the mail from the mail was all good Choir practice is back on and Carols in the park looks a good thing after a minor blip on the radar all seems to be tracking nicely.I seriously enjoy what i do for a living these days and both Big Jim and Jack were instrumental in the leap of faith i took to place me in this glorious position. Kudos guys.... and it is work that drags me away and disrupted the smooth running of this Monday morning but i wouldn't have it any other way woohoo ... i love my life

coincidence


 coincidence not this time but it is a word i do love

missed again

as the days pass i realize my life is slipping by. i am aware of the passage of time as the signposts whizz past at such a rate of knots it sometimes makes my head spin. As ppl close to me reach new high water marks in personal growth i am happily doing what i can to become a better person in both thought and deed the examples of those around me inspire me to analyze and adjust my state of awareness .my failure to post yesterday just demonstrates how distracting this life can be. so this is salute to my amazing friends that continue to inspire me to enjoy each precious moment as it presents.  This weekend i return to the source to recalibrate my emotional landscape and the picture brings all this into sharp contrast.
Cheers to all my readers

Early Morning

it has been a while since i was up and about before 6am but needs dictate and i have done a few things already today  i have appointments and dates and a myriad of other stuff demanding my attention which i will attend to right away. Sad to mention to all that may have known him but Mr Squiggle aka Norm Heatherington passed away recently and it is a loss to the world what a lovely kind man he was and he will live on (in my mind) whenever Blackboard tells anyone to , "hurry up".

Monday morning

Up early with lots on. Jace is on his way down from the coast, i have a cpl of contact hours and enough paperwork to choke a horse. slowly i will address these issues and others as the day progresses. Had a great weekend with a balance of go out and stay home stuff. currently life is going swimmingly and i expect this trend to continue .. still no new pics to post   Pfffttt i say in my best french accent

Display Dat play

had a pleasant evening and a leisurely trip home via a giant latte at Mule and a visit to Soph at Fed Square checked out the redheads ceramic display (pics to follow eventually) before heading back home, i have a realization of the Paradox that is this life we lead,  Been so pleased with the life i am leading of late Pinch Me i'm dreaming with the irony of have and have not living so close to the surface it helps define my joy..

joy in the little things

it has been another day to survive the stream of thoughts that at times cloud my mind .. the company i keep and the compassion displayed make it all a little bit easier to manage .So today i have focused on the lesser things like pouring a nice stream of coffee, neatly tied laces and cleaning up my work area one bit at a time. it seems to help . But the 1st day of the 2nd test in the 5 match series brings the memories flooding back i smile as i recall all that has goner before ... gone but never forgotten    later mate

what the fuck do i know

had my reality shaken then stirred with a viewing of What the bleep do we know, i sorta get quantum physics and the unified string theory but the reality is lost down the rabbit hole that Alice discovered . like the nature of people and things and stuff the more i know the more i realise my subjective view of reality is mine and mine alone no matter how i try to share my world.. nevermind we do what we do to become the person we are ... but my circle of control seems to grow exponentially while i have no concern for control of others reality sorta my music with the world playin the tune the more vague i become the more obvious it seems
