Cheers to Kipling!


8th place in the surf swim race, oldest in my age group! next year could be one of the youngest!

 Thanks, Rudyard, for capturing the spirit of a champion so well with your eloquence!...
for  showing what we humans have inside of us and then carrying this instinct from millions of our ancestors as we were coming down from the trees learning/evolving  to survive against all odds..

"If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew

To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: "Hold on!"

( i had done so much writing in a creative way only for it to be erased when the blog of writing freezes... knowing that I have the strength, heart, endurance and cunning to go the distance winning my race along my rip that I claim for myself on saturday!!!
visualizing swimming out the rip... figuring the general outlay of the rips and the banks...
wondering if Greg and I could scout it all out before the big races on saturday and figure on the strength of the waves...(the waves were extra large and challenging to get out past the breaks)
These past few days have been so challenging  f as parents and hopefully as  best friends and mates for life!
and yet so rewarding as our family slogs and paddles through the challenging waves of life
first losing my wallet when cycling back from shopping
then having to call the electrician when our power tripped out because of a faulty corroded wiring...

A big 2 meters of white froth is coming towards u
And u duck dive deep under the water avoiding the strong water on top to find the calmer water that will take u past this wave
avoiding the strong water on top to find the calmer water that will take u past this wave


Im very frustrated with this computer as I figure out her idiosyncracies….
She waits for me when I have a moment away from my sometimes angry child refusing to take his nap…

At this pint Colin is screaming while I hide out in bed while writing to u…
As if u are a mistress waiting to hear my innermost thought that I shoot out there for u to perhaps ponder…

Its already 5 minutes past 420 and there less than only a few hours left of light in this gorgeous (d)evolving (??) paradise as the wind and the swell pick up it’s to time to find ur current to take u past those wave and then find the right wave to take to first place!!!

At least in ur own book!
