in the middle of this cyclone in 2013.... maybe the Mayans were off by a year....
because the high tide is coming....
and i have to prepare for that big wave!!
watching Ky Hurst on TV, after he has practicing in front of our home a couple days a week...
he is a competitor...
he was able to do well on the swim...
im excited about getting back in shape!!
im feeling the energy after hitting the metaphoric bump in the road!!
a nice day to get over the usual repetive nightmares of neighbors who don't like us
body corporate sent me a nasty letter about hosing off with our garden hose while sitting down...
apparently sitting in budgy smugglers offended one of the downstairs neighbors..

an old photo that i couldnt resist putting on again

 i can sometimes get so overwhelmed with time...
as the days melt together... and it just seemed like the other day that i took this pic of my son in the american summer..
ive been chatting a lot more about my(our) life on facebook and realize how important it is to take pictures of these fleeting wonderful moments in time...
capturing a day on the beach, where perhaps you connect with a few other parkers on the beach
and dont with others... but you have the same goal...
to absorb the beach life...
to soak in the sun in the morning and get the last of it the evening twilight!!
   i want to get help from LA about this book,
and we have to get aussie citizenship!!


you take your life in your hands everytime you get into one of these automonsters that can take your life any moment by a texter, talker or drinker going furiously one way in a car or bike

i wrote my best little bit of poetry and it was gone...
i basically have to take a picture of this brief moment in time...
you go to bed and it will be another day.
im going to have to go to be soon .. or i will pay for it tomorrow..
colin is having his swim leasson...
i have to take advantage of these brief sleepless moments when i can have the chance to talk to you!!
i have so many things to do...
i just went for a walk out there in low tide
its only about an hour now from dawn...
days accelerate by!!
wow... its finally connecting...
my thoughts to the cyber universe!!
Im really feeling my age and almost acting like a retired pensioner...
cept no pension for moi...
and then i get a bang in the head
and i feel my energy ebb with age..
its almost like the 4 months in the states sapped me of what little boyish(?) energy i had..
thinking that ill have this energy for at least 10 more years...
what a fantasy...
and now this pain in the neck bothers me...

my family came home late last night..
i was biking on my 1 speed to the Oasis and back just actually hoping they hadnt been kidnapped...
and my paranoia for bad things takes over...
im partially right in this awful premonition
because i find out my better half was about to kicked out of the surf club after being refused any more drinks...
we separated about 4pm and i was finding out about the fires that were set along the way
i was happy when a neighbor called me to say my finally arrived back home after being distracted by the surf club about 400 meters before our home on Hedges avenue...
since my 40s ive been traumatized by the date friday the 13th...
and so now i wonder stupidly about 2013...
especially when on the first day, I take the rip out past the large waves and surf in
only to be lectured by the captain of the patrol
about warning the patrol before I swim...
i wanted to tell him that they are at least 400 meters to walk to
and the rip looked so blue and inviting, that my old legs didnt want to walk that distance just to tell them..
he asked if had life insurance...
i laughed and then he presumed...
"You dont!"
so i didnt feel like discussing this , and  i just continued to workout
and then came home to the power being turned off again in our humble old beach abode, because of a blown fuse (very outdated electricicity) ...
i wondered if this would be the start of a normal day in 2013!

i wrote this kinda prophetic piece and then for the third time im working out with my mentor lifeguard friend , stu..
so i first get stung by the long stringy tentacl…
