another great day as far as this short little parking space on this world;s limited layers
the moon is shimmering right now as i hover between views of this beautiful lady beckoning to look out for her and be enchanted with her reflection of the hot sun....
and understand how she draws you in as she does the low and high tides....
stretched to their natural limits under her draw...

i found my camera and so i can take a fleeting picture of this beautiful moment in time...
land she wants you to believe in this fantasy land when you see her reflection glimmerring back to you

This is how brainwashed right wing Yanks are!

Bobo BRENT Bozell is even more right wing than faux news with his blog,
the sad thing is so many right wing nuts believe what he is spewing!

The conventional wisdom has emerged that in order to avoid the so-called “fiscal cliff,” politicians in Washington must agree to some method of tax increases (“revenue”) – which will be real, even if low taxes are not the cause of our ills -- alongside some kind of promise of spending restraint on entitlement programs, which is our problem, and which no one believes Washington will restrain.
The American left and our “objective” journalists – same thing, I know – are not helping the nation balance its budget. As usual, these partisan hacks are obsessed with tearing the Republican coalition apart, limb from limb. By empowering the GOP moderates, they drive the conservatives into exile. These liberals are dishonest, but not dumb. They have no intention of honoring a pledge to curtail wasteful spending. What they want is GOP civil war. "

im often afraid to tell you how great things are, because then something bad happens...
i suppose my biggest fears are the terrible things that humans do for petty reasons,,,
out of jealousy or just showing they are higher on the pecking order...
regardless, i have to keep a positive frame of mind...
like knowing when ill win the surf race...
and finally after 5 weeks, we are almost there...

Only in Oklahoma!

An Oklahoma state lawmaker oversaw the installation of a 2,000-lb. granite block depicting the Ten Commandments on the grounds of the state capitol Friday, amid fears that the monument will spark a costly legal battle over its constitutionality.
But before state Rep. Mike Ritze (R), who sponsored the initial bill and whose family donated $10,000 to fund the project, worries about fielding a suit from the state’s American Civil Liberties Union, he first needs to deal with spelling errors, The Oklahoman reports.
The rose-stone block reads “Sabbeth” instead of “Sabbath.”
And at its base, the tenth commandment reads, “Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor’s wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidseruent.” It should read "maidservant."

and do you wonder why I call it the Okie Zone?

wow... what a day for our son, Colin!
I am so proud of him the way he loves to grab each moment of the day !!
waiting to play with his favorite friends on the beach,
then playing some frisbee (which i discovered swimming with goggles looking for the treasures hidden amongst the algae and other debris)
then losing this wonderful frisbee with an amazing 70-100 meter throw right smack into the hungry rising tide of the sea..
i kept swimming in the shallows trying to find the missing ufo... spinning into its freedom, but almost standing high in the strong ocean wind... it cut through the headwind facing me when i threw...
i was amazed at the aerodynamics...
i resigned myself to the idea of losing something wonderful that was a gift from my mistress, the sea,
and then taking the toy back with an amazing flight for freedom(??)
it was the sacrifice to her for this wonderfully lazy lifestyle on the beach....
and so we set up the little wading pool in our backyard...
my wife took some pics of us frollicking in the pool...

then colin finds two older friends to run around in the sun...

i didnt know whether to start it out with a large anaconda after devouring it's victim
to talk about our human race
and it's possible future...
sit doesn't have to end in armegeddon like so many southern christians believe
we have a tough road to take

but i often think if we just use our energy wisely on the right things!
maybe our dreams can come true
I was wanting to upload some photos...
there have already been 4 surf swims and i've lost 4kilos of baggage
what have we learned as far as the "resilliency" of our family...
we have overcome many obstacles on this journey to where we are now
and so many still ahead
but if we work and proceed just one day at a time..
austerity is the key for now
until this major project
1. writing a book
2. and our family becoming permanently Aussie
3. enrolling my son in kindy(?) at Broadbeach State School(the school where I ran as a child through the 5 meter wide grassy lawn easement that went all the way to the  young school... (it was built in '62)

colin taking his own picture!

as usual the right wing whining about the media!

Throughout the very long presidential election cycle, two trends remained consistent. The media lauded Obama no matter how horrendous his record, and they savaged Obama’s Republican contenders as ridiculous pretenders.
From the start of the Republican race in 2011, every candidate who took the lead then took an unfair beating. They even slimed Sarah Palin in case she decided to run. Martin Bashir announced she was “vacuous, crass, and according to almost every biographer, vindictive too.” Newsweek mocked Michele Bachmann on its cover, making her look pale, confused and nutty, with the headline “The Queen of Rage.” Politico and other media outlets tried to pin sexual harassment claims on Herman Cain without naming, or even knowing the accusers.

we have a long road ahead!

a long roaD AHEAD... FOR US AND OBAMA!!

esse est percipe!!   to be is to be percieved!!
when we have a vision and a dream... and perceive
happy that our leader will have another 4 years to achieve what he couldn't do before...
i've imagined a life
and others want us to have the world where we know that we will be taken care of!

i was confident that Obama would win but still wary of how the way Bush stole the election from another possibly great leader...Gore... and perhaps we would never have been mixed up in another 2 vietnams!!
 what ifs??
perhaps a better less evil republican party will evolve out of necessity... perhaps a more reasonable moderate Bush, but it would be scary if he ran in 4 years as the neoconservative war machine would perhaps take over continuing our endless wars!

cant complain about the view!

i havent written much lately, while im just absorbing fatherhood fulltime on the beach....
enjoying each moment , while happy with so many things almost as if we could be blessed...
after i have had so many challenges in my life and surviving them...
and becoming proud of the person that i believe that im finally emerging into...
a picture of a wonderful life would be to self actualize as a person...
overcoming life as if it's a chess match...
and loving my son unconditionally
even if he puts soap on my toothbrush...
or eating half the chocholate bavarian cream pie
underneath the bunk bed in the back room while he screams holy hell...
but then yells
and i cant wait to hug him
it is amazing how he has become the love of my life...
and understand while everyone including his nana and papa love him so much....
we are blessed to be his guardian!!

i went downstairs to admire the almost full waning moon...
realizing my own mortality...
i think of a friend who had his wake up call at a much younger age
and then i get a glimmer of what my own mortality could be
when i walk across Hedges ave.
and suddenly see double with much better acuity...
it was bizarre
i closed either eye and didnt see double
but then I could walk just shutting one eye
to a chair
to see my beloved ocean one more time
and eat a halloween mini candy bar
the uneasy feeling wondering when the double image
fades away with each bite

hypoglycemia or
a mini stroke....

and I hug my son that evening
and play frisbee with my son more than i ever have
having discovered my son's new toy hidden among
the seaweed about a 100 meters out from shore...

the feelings run across my mind that night,
with frustration at my own body's fragile shell
and the necessary need to establish the bucket list....

and this Mermaid tale needs to be written!

so we pass it on from one generation to the next
we live through our children
they will be around when we are gone...
my son picked up an old birthday card for dad's 90th birthday well over 6 years ago
written so beautifully by my neice...
i epiphenize they will carry on our conciousness..

life is ever more precious to enjoy every moment while on our very brief and small parking space
