Wow - So very fast

Amazing, How fast the festive season comes and goes, then we find ourselves in the aftermath, the presents, the excess rubish and packaging, the extra pounds around the waist - who'da thought I could consume enough food to feed a small nation ??? and now I am paying for it.

Not sure how to move the excess Kilo's, but sure have to try something, as I am very uncomfortable now. just don't know how I am going to do it.

Life is still smooth sailing, working plenty as workmates are off having holidays. I hope to have a holiday in April, and head overseas again, maybe just Indonesia for a few weeks this time, havn't been there yet. it will be a great break, and I am looking forward to having the time off.

Sitting here, almost midnight, and I am listening to the "Lennon Sisters" and their song, "May you always" such a beautiful song, Dianne, Cathy, Peggy and Jenny express my sentiments to those that are in my circle of special people I know. So many wonderful and graceous people who cross my path during my life cycle, and I can only wish for them the sentiments of this song. It could be very close to being my favourite song.

Well, we start another year, and I hope it will be a year of peace, happiness and laughter... Yes, laughter is something magical, something special, something that is missing in many of our lives. A good sincere deep laugh has healing powers, no matter your mood, or circumstances, it can transform us - even if for only a short time. Something I will have to make sure that this year I will laugh more, love deeper and Dance the Joys of Life.

Well, it is late and I am tired. As I close, I am listening to Partridge Family, I think I love you... such a fun and up-tempo song, making me feel good.

the First of Christmas Dinners

Last night, was the first of the "Christmas Parties" and it was for work... a great night was had by all that attended, and was held at Kalevu Restaruant - Sylvania... a lovely restaurant, but vey decorative food... What I will never understand is why when I order a steak, that is what comes out on my plate... just a steak, nothing else.... if I want vegies, I have to order them seperate, or salad and chips, I have to order them seperate.... I find this bizare.... I mean to say, just feed me a propper dinner !!!!!!

I wanted to go next door and get a hamburger and a proper serve of chips... hehehehe....

I guess this is where it all begins ?

Well, this is a new beginning, my first blog.... Lets see where it takes us.

I guess this all begun in January 08, when my life made a huge change, some very important decisions were made and life as I knew it became incredibly different.

Until then, I had a very carefree life, working my own business, my own times, partying when I could, and living life in the very fast lane. I had many friends, and enjoyed the friends, their company and many playful times.

There have been many many times when life has gotten too hard, when my heart has been kicked and battered, the pocket seemed empty - like the tummy, but I have made my way through all these and become a stronger and better man from the lessons that have been learnt.

My good friend had many sayings, and was always a wise and wonderful woman that I could spend many hours talking, learning, studdying etc, one of her sayings -

Experience is a hard teacher,

as she gives the test first

and the lesson after.

Oh how very true, and I am sure that there are a world full of people that have learnt this lesson, some in a very hard way.

That is enough of the past, well, that far back anyway, and 28th October 2007 is when I fell in love with a passion that had never been known or felt before. I leave all behind me and move to Sydney for my new life, a life of blissful happiness and love.

I get a marvelous job in Sydney which gives me the freedom and yet the stability to ground myself in Sydney and build the perfect future.

Well over the past year, life only gets better and better, and we celebrate our first anniversary. We both are still very happy and life seems to be smooth sailing.

I have been learning Auslan - Signing for the Deaf, at Tafe for 6 months now, and I do this with my good friend Ken. We have such a good time, and have been refered to as the "Class Clowns" Well, all I can say to this is that if being a clown makes people happy, bring it on..... this is a two year corse and we are a quarter through it... it is getting harder, but so very rewarding.
