Today

We went for a lovely drive to Philip Island today,just my lovely lady and myself. We had some great dim sim and noodles at Cowes there,and just enjoyed each others company. Was a nice day,and I always love to spend time with her. It distracts me from worrying about my lack of employment,and feelings of insecurity and uselessness that accompany this. She is very supportive,and constantly tells me to go for what I want to do. But what about her needs and wants? She is stuck in meaningless work,and would love to do something she likes doing. I'd feel selfish and ignorant wanting to pursue my own goals,and I just want to make a fair contribution to the running of the house,and paying bills etc.And above all,ensure we keep us connected and happy. Above all else,I never want to jeopardise what we have,as she means so much to me :):) and i love her so.....

Good grief!

Yes!Good grief!! I got here in Melbourne on the 2nd of May after a long 12 hour journey, towing 2 ton of stuff but was so glad to arrive safely!!!  And am only just blogging again haha.  Having pretty much settled in with my lovely lady,and adjusted to a few extras such as cute kittens and new puppy, its time to find a job!! Groan for it can be difficult......been here twice before in last 18 months having moved to Qld,then Adelaide! Both places too warm and dry for my liking! However it is green here, quite cool and has lots of close services and so it seems nice people!! Am liking it already!! Its also great to see my beautiful gf every day and not stress about being apart!!!

I miss my daughter a bit, but know she has her own life, and that i can hopefully get her over here soon for visits, once i've gained employment and catch up financially etc....

All in all-it is good to be here and I am relatively happy with all at the moment, the only thing marring this is lack of a job, which I'm sure will be a problem solved very soon!

i am so slack haha

Been a while since I blogged-but tomorrow is the day of my journey to foreign lands and new beginnings!!The trailer and car is loaded,just got tiny bit of cleaning to do tomorrow and its good bye Adelaide. Have had mixed emotions-excited to be starting life with my beautiful gf, yet sad to be leaving my daughter behind,albeit only an hours plane flight away. I think though with some visits she will see things for what they are-that Dad needs a life too and that she is most welcome anytime. Marjorie too has been moving-working hard to organise a place for both of us bless her heart and wearing herself out in the process! Moving is not often a pleasurable experience-but its the end result that motivates most people. And this move has been a long time coming-long distance relationships are great and all but sooner or later the strain shows,and something needs to be done. And I couldn't be happier being part of M's life and sharing our loves of music and many other things with each other!So yay for tomorrow-and all tomorrows after :)

Love

The more connections you and your lover make, not just between your bodies, but between your minds, your hearts, and your souls, the more you will strengthen the fabric of your relationship, and the more real moments you will experience together.

Good deeds

Today,while eating my lunch sitting in the truck at a shopping centre,a lovely older lady asked if i would mind lifting a 15kg bag of fertilizer out of her trolley into her car. Of course,I immediately obliged,and the deed was done in a matter of minutes,and I was thanked and all was sweet. Small as this gesture was,I felt good that I was actually asked. It raises the point that if asked-would most people jump up to help another? I'd like to think so! I quite often let other cars in front of me in traffic,or collect extra waste just as a gesture of good will. If everyone went that centimetre further.our world would be much more caring and harmonious I believe .Often we are all too self absorbed and so damn competitive we give no thought to helping others!!! And I like to believe it comes back to you-and it does! People often let my truck into very busy trafficways-and I always smile and wave them a brief thanks. It takes nothing to smile and help out a wee bit-and you could make someones day!!!!:)

musings

Well, things are slowly building up towards my big move to be with my beautiful gf!!Having booked a trailer,broken my lease,booked a carpet clean and proceed to start packing,things are picking up at an ever increasing pace. to say I can't wait to get out of here is an understatement!!  I look forward to spending my life with Marjorie(her pseudonym hehe),getting to know her properly and sharing all things in life-good and not so good!!! There will be trials and maybe some adjustments,but I feel we can meet these challenges and together overcome any hiccups that may present themselves. As well as this there will be the joys of discovering new things,exploring our shared interests and building a stronger foundation for enjoying each others company for time to come. I have the utmost respect and love for her, and can't believe how she just gets me-something new to me in this world,and its so good to be loved back for being who I am,not for what I can be(as I've had too many times in the past).I may waffle on here sometimes-Its just I can't iterate enough what it all means to me.Words can't often describe all the emotions I feel-because some of them are new to me too!!!

Yay to the future ,to new beginnings and to love-we would all be lost without it.For to love is to live.

Have I ever told you how good it feels to hold you

My heart can’t wait another day when you kiss me I just gotta
Kiss me I just gotta kiss me I just gotta say

Baby I love you c’mon baby
Baby I love you ooh-wee-ooh baby
Baby I love I love only you

I can’t live without you I love everythinh about you
I can’t help it if I feel this way

Oh, I’m so glad I found you I want my arms around you
I love to hear you call my name oh, tell me that ya feel
Tell me that ya feel tell me that ya feel the same

Baby I love you c’mon baby
Baby I love you ooh-wee-ooh baby
Baby I love I love only you

Oh, I’m so glad I found you I want my arms around you
I love to hear you call my name oh, tell me that ya feel
Tell me that ya feel tell me that ya feel the same

Easter

I had a great weekend with my beautiful girlfriend-we had lots of laughs,good food,went out and spent quality time together and had a lovely family meal on Sunday!! I love spending time with her,enjoying food or listening to music or just doing things we love doing. I am so looking forward to moving to be with her-we have a fantastic rapport and can talk about anything,as well as find enjoyment in doing anything together. I feel I am so lucky-and as with these things so worried something will happen to take it away!!But thats just a result of my own lack of self worth-and will believe I deserve this as life has been teaching me the lessons to be able to appreciate good fortune instead of shrugging it off as random,and only meant for other people!!I love her so-and never want to let her go.

Saturday Night

Here we are,end of another week! A good feeling and time for some bevvies. Had another b/day yesterday, and I still think every year-what have I achieved in my life. Apart from the birth of 2 great kids-not much!! I have worked in a variety of jobs,and done my best to excel at all of them,yet seem unfulfilled yet. Do I want to keep doing this, or do something which will be more to my calling? I feel I have wasted my musical abilities-do I follow these and use them for good or evil hehe Or do I look another direction and study to help people more-in the fields of spirituality,healing or counselling which all hold attractions to me? At 41 ,I feel no closer to knowing my true calling then I did at 16....
On another note,I am anticipating seeing my beautiful girl again at Easter,and that keeps me propelled towards next weekend!! Yay!! And after that,the organising and stress that goes with moving again-to a new beginning with my gf. I feel sad for my daughter,whom I am leaving here,but know she is always taken care of,and that she will be visiting  and I will still get to see her smiling face and feel that connection I've had with her since she opened her eyes as a wee baby.Her mum spoils her too much-but I can see a sensitive,caring young woman emerging and it tugs at my heartstrings knowing all the growing up she has to do,and the resulting turmoils and triumphs she will be dealing with. I hope she never feels the sense of hopelessness and loneliness I did as a child growing up,growong up in a world still stuck in old fashioned ideals of how a boy should act and be,Granted she is a girl lol and will find it somewhat different!! But that in itself brings forth many challenges-But I feel she will be ok.
Life is what you make it they say-well I'm gonna make it happy!!! I will love my gf and create a new life-bringing a maturity that will overrun any previous challenges i"ve had in my relationships previously. And forge a new path of fulfillment and wellbeing-for both of us,by just working together and following our hearts.I can't wait to get started!!!

The way of things to come?

A mother had her forehead tattooed with the web address of a gambling site after auctioning off advertising space on her head to pay for her son's school fees.
Karolyne Smith with her Goldenpalace.com logo
Karolyne Smith has to live with a permanent billboard on her forehead after she accepted Goldenpalace.com's offer of $10,000 for the 'advertising space'. She needed the money to send her son Brady to a private school.

Karolyne said: ""I really want to do this. To everyone else, it seems like a stupid thing to do. To me, $10,000 is like a million dollars."

"I only live once and I'm doing it for my son. It's a small sacrifice to build a better future for my son."

Karolyne did not take the decision lightly. She discussed it for more than three weeks with her boyfriend Jeremy Williams.

Smith's eBay auction attracted more than 27,000 hits and 1,000 watchers. Bidding reached $999.99 before Goldenpalace.com, an Internet gambling company met Smith's $10,000 asking price. Goldenpalace.com also gave her another $5,000 for her trouble.

Another person, inspired by Karolyne is currently auctioning his forehead as ad space on ebay.

Weekends

Just survived a weekend with my lovely daughter who is 12 going on 25.Well actually it was just saturday afternoon and sunday. Amongst watching the whole season of Summer Heights High,pillow fights that i lost and endless payouts i wound up feeling exhausted by Sunday night!!! It was good though and i'm happy she can be relaxed and be herself around dear old dad(as she keeps reminding me,in between pulling hairs off my nose with tweezers and commenting on my grey hairs popping up!)I have been talking to her about the move and she is showing interest in the new area my love and I will be living in and the various things we'll be able to do and see.And my gf has been posting songs on Facebook(as I have) that my daughter has shown great interest in and even requesting copies of said music and cd's. So I think after the initial sadness when I do leave she will be ok once she comes over and sees how happy we are and that she is always welcome to visit.And I thank my beautiful gf for being so accepting of her and understanding how important it is to keep the bonds we share. In many many ways my gf is such a beautiful person i can't comprehend how lucky I am to be with her and enjoy her warm loving presence in my life.:)

Rocking with me

There was once an elderly, despondent woman in a nursing home. She wouldn't speak to anyone or request anything. She merely existed - rocking in her creaky old rocking chair.

The old woman didn't have many visitors. But every couple mornings, a concerned and wise young nurse would go into her room. She didn't try to speak or ask questions of the old lady. She simply pulled up another rocking chair beside the old woman and rocked with her.

Weeks or months later, the old woman finally spoke.

'Thank you,' she said. 'Thank you for rocking with me.'"

Twenty Dollars

A well known speaker started off his seminar by holding up a $20 bill. In the room of 200, he asked. "Who would like this $20 bill?"

Hands started going up. He said, "I am going to give this $20 to one of you - but first, let me do this."

He proceeded to crumple the 20 dollar note up. He then asked. "Who still wants it?" Still the hands were up in the air.

"Well," he replied, "what if I do this?" He dropped it on the
ground and started to grind it into the floor with his shoe. He picked it up, now crumpled and dirty. "Now, who still wants it?"

Still the hands went into the air.

"My friends, you have all learned a very valuable lesson. No
matter what I did to the money, you still wanted it because it did not decrease in value. It was still worth $20.
Many times in our lives, we are dropped, crumpled, and ground into the dirt by the decisions we make and the circumstances that come our way. We feel as though we are worthless; but no matter what happened or what will happen, you will never lose your value.

Dirty or clean, crumpled or finely creased, you are still
priceless to those who love you. The worth of our lives comes, not in what we do or who we know, but by ...WHO WE ARE.

You are special - don't ever forget it."

Stuff

Well,I've sent in a lease break form, which to me is a first step to a new life,with my lady whom i love very much. A bit of organizing,packing and by May will be off to new state and city for another direction in life. One i hope with more permanency and is sure to be a much happier life!!! While the excitement of it is overwhelming,in the background of my mind is always the fear of failure,which i try to push aside and think,no it will be ok!! New things always tend to get me in worry mode,but I just think how I feel when my gf is with me and worries just ebb away. Finding work worries me too-while I feel I'm a good worker,I don't want to be out of it for long. For financial and well being reasons. Above all this though i look forward to forging a new life with someone who see's things much the same as I do,similar likes and interests and just a total love of mutual things(and each other).This will be a first in my life,as i've always been struggling to fit in with partner's and their kids at times demands and expectations,leaving myself overworked and hollow quite often. My daughter will still visit,and it's important for her and me to maintain that close connection. But for me and my lovely gf,this is another step and a positive way to create that which we both want. A life together with much fun and experiences,and someone who will still hold hands with you when you are in your twilight years... YAY for new directions and chances in life-and for special people in it who mean so much to me,you know who you are :)

What a Weekend!

Yay!! Just had my lovely girlfriend over for the weekend,despite having to work grrrr. As always it was great seeing her and catching up on things,and just hanging out with each other.As always too I felt a big loss when she went home,as if half of me were missing!!! Well soon things will change and we can set about creating a life together which is something i've wanted with the right girl for a very long time.And she is the right one I feel-never have I felt so happy and at one with someone, and take great pleasure in the simple things. She has a fantastic view on the most important things in life-love,music,good food,simple pleasures(hehe)-and I can relate whole heartedly and enjoy any time I have with this woman, who has such a beautiful soul she awes me constantly! I feel blessed and very lucky,and hope this continues for years to come!!

Love

A loving relationship is one in which the loved one is free to be himself - to laugh with me, but never at me; to cry with me, but never because of me; to love life, to love himself, to love being loved. Such a relationship is based upon freedom and can never grow in a jealous heart.

A Fair thing?

It has been a better week emotionally for me-although i miss her badly,knowing my girlfriend is visiting next weekend has reduced the lonely,sad feelings i get a lot these days. Until today haha watching Avatar triggered a major set of sad emotions,after which some sleep was required. My parents instilled the hold it all in,be brave attitude.This condemned me to holding emotions in most of my life,but the last 12 months or so has seen an awakening,where i can't hold them in any longer!! As a result i feel great highs and lows,which is new for me but very enriching for relationships-as I can say how i feel with a clear mind,knowing i'm not kidding myself or anyone else. In the past i've shown what i'm supposed to feel,or even not showed any at all coz i never knew what i was feeling!!!I do know I love my gf very much,and she has the benefit of me overcoming many years of confusing emotional maelstroms.And as we look to plan our lives together this can only help our relationship remain strong and real-and something to enjoy and nurture....

And another day over...

I had a quite normal sort of day,ordinary so to speak.Yet i became annoyed and perplexed at people's inability to have patience,or even think outside the square.I need to park sometimes where i can drag bins out to the road , to load onto truck.There is no other way to do this function without blocking the road, but people can go around the other way to get where do they want to go. So why do they insist on coming up behind the truck,just sitting there while i'm slaving away trying to ignore their dirty looks? And then the one who came up behind the truck and beeped at it while I wasn't even in it? I so wanted to jump in,put in reverse and stomp on the accelerator,demolishing the said cars front end and hopefully his arrogance and rudeness as well.Are we all becoming so impatient and rude? I know I don't like what its making me become-angry and frustrated!!! I try and be patient and calm but sometimes gees!!!! Get me out of here!!!!!

Positive Things

I've decided to write a list of things I like to balance all my recent negative thinking!So here goes-I love the rain,gazing on a beautiful beach or coastline,listening to music that moves me,driving around the city in early hours when no traffic around(very pretty),my girlfriends eyes and smile,my girlfriend hehe,beautifully restored cars or tastefully modified wheels,eating at restaurants,chocolate,trying different cheeses,drinking good bourbon or scotch whisky,looking through antique shops/op shops for treasures,playing classical music on the piano,walks in rainforests,watching comedies and romantic movies,listening to loud metal music when the mood suits,driving to different places and exploring those places,trying different cuisine,veging out after a hard week at work,cuddling up in front of a fire,chatting online,listening to peoples different life stories,creepy movies,computing magazines to keep up with technology,laughing with friends,watching movies with my girlfriend or daughter,any time spent with these two fantastic people,drinks with close friends,watching live music,thunderstorms,fishing when i get the chance(don't like hurting the fish though!have become the eternal pacifist-don't even like killing spiders in the toilet!),holding my gf close and hearing her soft breathing and heartbeat,making love,escaping into a good book,iced coffee(only farmers union though heh),sitting next to the one you love and feeling content,and many other things i just can't remember right now!!!!!! life does have its good moments :)

Musings and Melancholy

Its been a tough week as usual. Work has been unrelenting as I strive to get ahead and make advances towards a new life.Applying for new jobs has been easy however returns have been zilch so far. While my ever patient and beautiful girlfriend and I discuss a future life together, we both suffer in silence within the loneliness of now. She means so much to me,and I do worry someone or something will come along and render my hopes and dreams asunder. She deserves to have someone with her right now to help her combat her own dilemmas she's facing at the moment,and I feel helpless stuck here,trying to worm my way out of a self imposed rut. I fear she may lose patience for me, and if that happened I wouldn't know where to turn. She fills my heart up with light and love,and a future with her would be a dream of mine I feel. We have that get it factor-where we understand each other without having to explain in great detail how we feel and what we need. I perhaps wallow too much lately in self absorption and negativity,but I find it hard once I've been with her a few hours,to be able to recreate that feeling of happiness and belonging at home on my own. Books,music and T.V and internet only go so far!!! And copious amounts of alcohol doesn't help anyone. So,therefore-I must grit my teeth and comtinue to work towards fulfilling this dream!!! Coz I love her so....

Ramblings

Ah its late for me, i'm normally in bed! I just can't stop thinking about events in my life-some that i've waited ages for,and the people who think its their right to thwart my happiness. I believe in following your heart,and my heart is with the girl i've fallen deeply in love with. Yes,I do have certain obligations in regards to family. However, I can only do so much and a lot of the time I am not needed where it counts. I have for the second time returned to offer some assistance,however occupation obligations and family dynamics have prevented myself from making any real impact,other then to reinforce my aimless wandering in a world not of my choosing.I see my daughter growing up with a false sense of whats most important in life-while I try and instil proper moral structure and whats most important in life,it continually gets undermined by narrow-minded individuals who continually fail to see the bigger picture. Thus I need to follow my hearts desire's to prevent a certain emotional and soul destroying implosion within myself of being unable to fulfil my own elusive destiny. I believe I am here this time round to value the intricacies of unconditional love-something which my temperament and life has thus eluded me yet taught me many lessons of people's separate thinking and searches for their own meanings of life. I believe I have found what I am looking for-someone to bestow my appreciation and endless loving capacity towards and who will never lack for companionship and endless respect and admiration. Does this mean my life will end soon as I have learnt the meaning this time around? Or will I finally be able to see out my remaining years exploring the wondrous experiences that this love will bring,and which I have searched for for so long? I hope its the latter as I look forward to many years of being with my beautiful girl friend,learning her nature,her likes/dislikes and her enthusiasm for the things she holds dear. She already makes me see things i have been blind too before,and fulfils me in a way I'm so unaccustomed too.So why should other's try to deny this to me? Well i won't let that happen-they may disagree but its my life after all. Everyone has there path-let mine be completed with happiness and contentment,and to stop the bewildering confusion my life has been. Long live love and thank the universe for the enriching life I will lead from this moment on.

Weekend!!

After 3 weeks of wistful longing and sadness,it was decided i would drive to Melbourne to see my lovely lady,whom i miss very much. Alas I decided to do this after a 7 hour shift starting at 1am,but love keeps you awake!! Being Valentines Day was an extra spur-who wants to be alone on the day the whole world treasures and spoils there loved peoples??? It was a blissful 3 nights and 2 days-I always treasure her company as she is so easy-going.kind and beautiful,and always will be.Leaving always makes me tearful-I have never felt such depth of feeling for anyone in my life,and it can take your breath away sometimes! As I live on my own its getting harder and harder to cope this way,as well as dealing with a dislike of my surroundings and hatred of my occupation. Things need to change!!!

Road rage-is it preventable? Yes and No i think.As a regular truck driver,encountering heaps of traffic on the roads of Adelaide, i'm not surprised at the amount of rage out there,I too get angry when I have places to go,and find people at the front of the traffic lights who seem to fall asleep-and end up moving a minute later and as I go to come through there the lights have changed already. I know, patience is a virtue but being on the road up to 12 hours sometimes entitles me to be home earlier sometimes lol. And those idiots who think its funny trying to race a ten tonne truck to a gap in the traffic make me laugh. And what about those who can't seem to read speed signs and do 60 in an 80 zone,or do 40 even,holding up banks of traffic and raising blood pressure everywhere!!! I know.tolerance required too on my behalf,but as a usually very patient person it pushes my buttons too!!! I believe people need to take driving more seriously at times-i'm sure some just meander along,daydreaming like Mr.Magoo while 10000 pile ups occur behind their wake due to absent minded lane changing without indicating and braking for every car coming out of a side street!!! Wtf? Keep it moving people!!! And there is probably more but I have taxi drivers to annoy-and thats another story hehe

Sheep gives birth to lamb with human-like face: reports
January 14, 2010
Human-faced lamb ... as the story appears on the Pravda website.

Human-like face ... how the story of the lamb appears on the Pravda website.

A sheep in Turkey has reportedly given birth to a lamb with a human-like face.

Vet Erhan Elibol performed a caesarean section to deliver the calf near the city of Izmir and was horrified to find it looked like a human, Russian and Turkish news sites said.

"I've seen mutations with cows and sheep before. I've seen a one-eyed calf, a two-headed calf, a five-legged calf," the 29-year-old vet was quoted as saying in Russian newspaper website Pravda.


* Lily, a Chihuahua terrier mix from Charlotte, North Carolina, has five legs. July, 2009.
* Cy, a kitten born with only one eye and no nose, is shown in this photo provided by its owner iin December, 2005.
* A pig with two mouths is seen at a farm in the suburbs of Liaocheng, east China's Shandong province in July, 2006.
* An official shows a two-headed baby crocodile at Samut Prakarn Crocodile Farm on the outskirt of Bangkok Monday in June, 2001.
* Feng Changlin from Fengzhang village, Xiping township in China shows off his piglet with a monkey face in July 2008.
* Liu Shuping, shows off a newly-born piglet with one head, two mouths, two noses and three eyes, for photographers in Xi'an, northwest China in 2007.
* A genetic mutation left a kitten born in Perth in March 2007 with two faces.
* Stumpy, a four-legged duckling at Warrawee Duck Farm, Copythorne, Hampshire, England, pictured in 2007.
* We, a two-headed albino rat snake in January, 2006.
* This Holstein calf, born in December, 2006 in Virginia breathes out of two noses and has two tongues and a single eye socket.
* A frog with eight legs in Quanzhou, in southeast China's Fujian province in 2007.
* A two-headed red slider turtle at Big Al's Aquarium in Pennsylvania, USA.

"But when I saw this youngster I could not believe my eyes."

Photos purportedly of the lamb, which was stillborn, show human-like eyes, nose and mouth.

Vets said the calf's mutation was most likely the result of an excess of vitamin A in the mother's fodder.

Pravda reported that a goat in Zimbabwe gave birth to a similar human-like calf last September. But villagers killed it, believing it was the result of intercourse between the mother goat and a man.

For my one and only

So in love with you.
by Vincent Paul Gonzales

When I gaze into your eyes,
Tomorrow is all I see.
I wish you could know, my love,
Just what you mean to me.

To hold you in the darkness,
And watch you next to me
To kiss your gentle lips,
Is heaven, girl, to me.

We hold hands when in public,
I beam with such delight
For, it's your tenderness and beauty
That makes my heart take flight.

You came into my life,
So unexpectedly,
Words can't ever express
Just what you mean to me.

Poetry doesn't say it,
Music can't even touch,
The endless love inside of me,
That wants your gentle touch.

Don't ever leave me, darling,
I don't know what I would do
Because, my darling baby,
I am so in love with you.

Travelling!!

Was a great weekend spent visiting my beautiful girlfriend in melbourne!! After taking my first ever big plane flight (yes at 40) and successfully looking nonchalant to other passengers haha i arrived to a vast differenance in temperature and feel. I like being somewhere its not disgustingly hot(was 40 degrees when i left) and seeing a place with much more vibrance then poor ol adelaide can seem to muster. That being said i spent 4 wonderful days with my lady, who's company never ceases to restore my belief in unconditional love and a closeness of heart i've never experienced before!! She is amazing and its always sad to be leaving her. There begs the question why i'm not with her all the time. Family committments and job prospects make it hard but i am sure with time things will come together,and we'll be able to enjoy more time together when its right for both of us. And I can't wait!!!!!

Musings 2

Yes,another week gone!!!A full working week,including Sat morning rendered me exhausted Sunday morning!!!So much i slept til after noon lol.I felt the need this week to contact some old friends,which i did through emails and facebook,and still awaiting replies. I think you need to keep in touch no matter what, as they can't always keep in touch with you,and shouldn't have to do all the work!!Friendships like anything, need both parties to work at it sometimes, when life seems so busy you don't have time to do anything you want to do!!
Big thanks to my lovely girlfriend, whose support this week was invaluable while I battled extreme dental agony-the result of years of sugar addiction and dentist phobia! She cares very much about me, and that feels so good that I wonder how i deserve to have someone so loving!!!
You know, work isn't the be all and end all to me. And having the latest stuff appeals to me even less. What does matter is showing people you love that you care about them, and keeping this connection by showing unconditional love. We are all here on earth to love and help others-there is actually nothing else that really matters.

Motivations

Broken Wings

I have overpowered the silver lining with my bruised wings
I know the luster of the sunshine would heal me
My nest is almost on the verge of collapsing
I know my broken wings wouldn't give up
To gather the twigs again
My slashed wings ache when I fly
Yet I continue

Something beyond the dense haze constantly lures me
I bleed quite often
But I can't settle feeling small for the sake of luxury
I shall soar
For my limits are limitless
I don't mind my stings nor the broken wings!

Another day gone!!!Was contrast to last 3 very hot days-we had rain and nice temperatures today!! Trudging through life you often wonder if you're on the right path, or where its going to go. Follow your passions they say!! Sometimes, circumstances prevent you from doing that straight away. We all still have to live and carry on some semblance of existence!! Apart from my lovely girlfriend, whom I adore(who lives 1000km away) and my gorgeous daughter(growing up so quickly!), life is a hodgepodge of one day blending into the next with no highlights or lowlights even!! So I must endeavour to make more of life,to look for the good things and live as if I would die tomorrow(or soon)? Hmmmm how do you do that in a job you hate? Easy,get a new job!! Haha, easier said then done!! But the main thing is I think is to picture that future,and it will happen. And so I will.!!!!!!!! I also wish for more time with my gf hehe so who knows-this will happen too!!! Tomorrow is another day.

Review-The Lovely Bones

Today went to cinema with my lovely daughter Chloe, her friend Bree and even her brother tagged along to see The Lovely Bones.The story was well structured and easy enough to follow,and the acting excellent. Saoirse Ronan who played Susie Salmon,the 14 year old girl who was murdered played her part brilliantly,as did Mark Wahlberg as her grieving father, hell bent on finding out who her killer is. The killer played by Stanley Tucci was equally convincing as Susie's killer,and easy to loathe as a result!! Along with breathtaking scenery, imaginative landscapes and emotional poignancy the movie had me at least glued from start to finish.At just over 2 hours length, at no time did I feel compelled to wish the movie finished already!!! And the kids, while as normal non-committal on a verdict, not once interrupted the viewing with bored groans or sighs and the like. A beautiful movie-must see :)

A Beautiful Poem-Best Friends by Megan Du-Pont

It all comes down to one thing

From that intense feeling

It comes down to this



It's like we are floating between the valleys curves

Taking it slowly round those nervous words

Can you see us growing old together

Through thick and thin even stormy weather



Sweet are your every words

Warm are your embraces

It's your smile that drives me wild

Just that simple touch that says it's alright



Your carressing voice glides over melodies

Such beauty carries through

You've got me spinning through a colour whirl

I love the feeling

I love everything



Too perfect this all seems

Can it ever be so beautiful

Can it all last, will you stay

You are that other part of me

My anchor, my support, my friend

Yummm!!!!facts too!!


A Healthy Addiction?

Chocolate

I’ll admit it.I love chocolate!!!!Usually milk chocolate but occasionally dark chocolate too!!!So here are some facts about dark chocolate and why its good for you!!

Most dark chocolate bars contain antioxidants as well as the compound called epicatechin, which is a member of the plant flavonoids group. These flavonoids keep cholesterol from gathering in blood vessels, reduce the risk of blood clots, and slow down the immune responses that lead to clogged arteries. So, by eating a small amount of dark chocolate daily, you may actually be reducing your risk of a heart attack. Milk chocolate, on the other hand, has been found to have the lowest amount of both epicatechin and antioxidants.

However, not all chocolate is equal. In order to reap the benefits, you have to seek out the chocolate with the highest percentage of cocoa and make sure that the flavonoids have not been destroyed in the manufacturing process, as they sometimes are. Interestingly enough, consuming dark chocolate while drinking milk has also been shown to counteract the positive benefits, just like milk chocolate. And remember, also, that chocolate still is high in calories so be sure to portion a small amount for yourself rather than consuming the whole bar on one sitting (tough, but doable).

Ramblings!

This week has been increasingly hot weather wise,and makes me think about human effect on the changing atmosphere and environment.Is it us that has created these extreme weather patterns?Or is it natural progression of events in the circle of life-attributed to an eternal cycle over the centuries?We have done our major part in the damage done i believe,and need some major shift in thinking to overcome and reverse this!!!But how?I have lived in the city now only 4-5 months and see people wasting so much-in the way they treat their waste,the way they use their vehicles.So many think that someone else will solve all the problems,I can't do anything.They care little for the high cost we impose on the earth.What about the environment and the extinction of animals they say.What can we do?Is it indeed all scaremongering or is it for real?Need i think like Dr.W.Dyer and say there is plentiful for all and always will be if we intend it to be?Hmmm,maybe i think too much!!!!!

Band profiles-Dream Theater

Biography
The technically proficient guitar playing of John Petrucci elevated Dream Theater to the upper echelons of contemporary heavy metal. While its lineup has continuously evolved, the Long Island-based quintet has consistently delivered sharp-edged music. Dream Theater is known for its high-energy concert performances. While they've released several live albums -- Live at the Marquee, recorded at the London club; Live in Japan, recorded during the Music in Progress tour in 1993; and a triple CD and DVD, Live Scenes from New York -- they remain one of heavy metal's most bootlegged bands.

Originally named Majesty by Berklee College of Music students Petrucci, bassist John Myung, and drummer Mike Portnoy, the band soon expanded with the addition of keyboard player Kevin Moore and vocalist Chris Collins. Releasing an eight-tune demo, Majesty Demo, as Majesty, the group sold 1,000 copies within six months. The departure of Collins in late 1986 left Majesty without a vocalist, and after a long period of auditioning possible replacements, the group settled on Charlie Dominici in November 1987. Changing its name, the group agreed on "Dream Theater," inspired by a now-demolished California movie theater. Signing with Mechanic Records, the group began working on its first full-length album. Delays caused by label mismanagement limited the group to performing at small clubs and bars. Frustrated by its experiences with the label, Dream Theater finally severed its ties with Mechanic.

This was only one drastic change in the band's course of action. Firing Dominici, the group spent the next couple years searching for a vocalist. The search ended in late 1991 when a demo tape from Canadian vocalist James LaBrie, formerly of Winter Rose, arrived. After flying to New York to audition, LaBrie was invited to join the band. Signing with Atco Atlantic (which came to be known as East West), Dream Theater released its second album, Images & Words, in 1992. One of three videos based on songs from the album, "Pull Me Under," became an MTV hit. Although Theater showed considerable growth with their third studio album, Awake, recorded between May and July 1994, the group continued to be hampered by personnel changes. Before the album was mixed, keyboardist Moore left the group to focus on his solo career. Hired as a temporary replacement for the band's Waking Up the World tour, Derek Sherinian later became a permanent member. His first recording with Dream Theater was a 23-minute epic, "A Change of Seasons," written in 1989 and released in September 1995 on the album of the same name.

Following a mini tour, Fix for '96, the members of Dream Theater separated for several months and became involved with a variety of outside projects. Petrucci was the busiest. In addition to joining Portnoy and keyboard player Jordan Rudess in the Liquid Tension Experiment -- a group that included influential bassist/stick player Tony Levin -- Petrucci played guitar with Trent Gardner's Explorers Club and made a guest appearance on Shadow Gallery's Tyranny album. Myung and Sherinian collaborated with King's X vocalist Ty Tabor in the band Platypus. LaBrie worked with Mull Muzzler, a group formed with Matt Guillory and Mike Mangini.

Dream Theater experienced yet another change when Rudess was tapped to replace Sherinian, who had been fired in 1999. The band released the progressive rock-heavy Scenes from a Memory that year, a conceptual piece that followed the story of a 1928 murder of a young woman and how a modern man is haunted by the crime. It was followed by Live Scenes from New York in 2001, which suffered from an unintentional bout with controversy when its original cover featuring the city of New York in flames was pulled due to the events of September 11. The group continued in the progressive metal vein in 2002 with Six Degrees of Inner Turbulence, followed by the leaner Train of Thought in 2003 and Octavarium in 2005. The live album Score: XOX was released in 2006 and featured the band backed by a 29-piece orchestra. It was followed a year later by the new studio album Systematic Chaos, and in 2009 by Black Clouds & Silver Linings.

Sherinian went on to record as a soloist and to play with a prog and jazz fusion band, Planet X. Petrucci released an eponymously titled solo album in 2003, featuring accompaniment by Dave LaRue of the Dixie Dregs and Boston-based drummer Dave DeCenso.
