Write to your Ideal Reader

Blogging 101 prompt … When it comes to first dates, are our apparent perception of those dates we assume are going well, essentially just the inevitable prelude to what will invariably come to pass, the ever so sincere “it’s not you, it’s me” speech or “I’m not at the right place in my life to…

Bombo Quarry

The prospect of the open road, fresh salty sea air and the promise of unforgettable scenery, are one of the few things that I’m happy (albeit somewhat reluctantly) to get out of bed at 6am on a Sunday morning in 4OCelcius weather in the dead of winter for.  This morning is one of those days…

How can one Measure Happiness?

Often, I think about the people who have come into my life, the purpose they’ve served, those who have hurt me, abused me, misplaced my trust, taken me for granted, been toxic in my well being and then I remember those who have reminded me again that there are good, sincere, genuine people who will stick…

Mittagong Maltings Brewery – 30 Years of Decay Stands Proud

I groan.  6am on a somewhat chilly Sunday morning in Sydney.  The temperature says 6 degrees.  Yes, I’m inclined to agree. Reluctantly I force…

Beginnings and Inevitable Endings

Approximately 79 000  minutes ago, it seems fate intervened in my life, granted fate has never been a positive influence in my life, so let’s instead say some beautiful star up there bestowed upon me an unexpected amazing human being in the form of a grounded, beautiful man, that passed through my life, albeit briefly….

50 Shades of Sensory Delights

The heat leading up to Valentines’ this year, got hotter than a raging inferno, all wrapped up in a stylish, sexy grey suit and a somewhat dull default white shirt (which one can’t argue, he wore exceptionally well), and a pair of smoking hot ‘come hither’ hypnotic grey eyes.  This phenomenon that swept the nation…

Taralga Rodeo 2015

There’s something to be said for patiently waiting for a certain time of year to come round, akin to a child eagerly awaiting Santa to come sliding down that chimney.  In preparation they’ve carefully laid out a plate of cookies and a glass of hearty milk lovingly poured and sitting within reach of the chimney…
