I do love this city...

I'm in a very reflective mood right now, so tune out now if you don't want to share this with me... Trust me, it's not exciting... I've already deleted the original version of this post.


Well, my time living with the view above is drawing to a close. I took this picture last night from my rooftop. It was a nice night to sit up there with some beers and a bit of a cool breeze and think about what changes may lay ahead for me. Sometimes you choose life so it sends you in new directions where you don't really know where you're heading, but you have a good feeling about the change.


The other side of the harbour is what is ahead of me. This is the view on the way back this afternoon - from what I shall forthwith refer to as "my summer residence". This is where I'm moving. Although, I do plan to stay put for longer than just the summer. I'm moving to a street where, believe it or not, at one end is this - this beautiful harbour and at the other end is one of the world's most beautiful beaches. I feel like I'm one lucky lad right now.

I can not even begin to explain how much I have LOVED the past couple of years. People's faces flash into my mind and I just smile. Nights out strobe through as well. Afternoons sitting... drinking... laughing. Some times, the ones that are so vivid, are the ones I know are the times when I've felt more whole, more happy and more ME than ever before. I could seriously die right here, tonight, knowing I was satisfied. But, really, I have a few more mountains to climb so I'm not ready to check out just yet. But I could if I wanted to...

Wahoooooo! You're moving back over to the "Dark Side"! Welcome back mate! Methinks a revisitation of the Commodore on a Sat/Sun arvo could be on the books...? :-)

Looks mighty good from either side. It sounds like, wherever you end up, it's a good place to be.

It's good to feel the way you do Muz. Many people would pay good money to feel that same way.
Here's to decades before the check out!
