If I believed in luck.

Just been feeling a few times this week so extremely lucky. I don't believe in luck though. So I'll rephrase - fortunate, thankful.

That doesn't really cut it though. It's really a word more like luck. Like how could all these good things be happening to me, I fully didn't do anything to deserve it.

Bouncing around so much yesterday it took awhile to get to sleep.

Thinking back on the day(s) and not being able to help but smile.

Really lucky.

I hope, whoever you are reading this, is having a great week too.

April 1, 2012.

Feeling very lucky. Some things happen exactly wonderfully.

Feeling very thankful for some great things going on and great relationships.

Very thankful.

"All my days I will sing this song of gladness
Give my praise to the fountain of delights
For in my helplesness you heard my cry
And waves of mercy poured down on my life"

1, 2, 3...

There's this song that's always played on the radio these days.

You can count on me, like 1, 2, 3, I'll be there
When I know I need it I can count on you, like 4, 3, 2 and you'll be there
Cuz that's what friends are supposed to do

It's one of those songs that gets stuck in your head really easily. Don't know who it's by.

It's a bit simplistic, because of obviously no one can be counted on 100% of the time - we're only human and have our own constraints, but it's pretty cool when there are people that are pretty close to that.

Are you free? I need you to be here tomorrow at this certain time, important, explain later.
No worries.

I want to be really reliable. I want it to be that if I happened to be in the Sahara desert in the middle of the night and receive an emergency phone call I would like to be without hesitance jumping on the next camel and flying back to wherever is required.

I really don't want to go to the Sahara desert or fly via camel even if camels could fly but you know what I mean.

It's not to be the hero. Of course it's actually sometimes easy to be a hero in a crisis. I'm sure you know lots of those. Those that fly in and save the day just a second before the lightning strikes. The point really isn't to be a hero, but it's recognizing that those few last few minutes of decision making could be very critical in changing a major outcome.

The key, though, is not really about saving the day (although sometimes required). What about those that don't fly down in their superman capes when thunder and lightning come, but actually day to day, prevent the clouds from forming in the first place.

Those deserve a reward.

Thanks for the patience.

Feb 19, 2012.

It's been an interesting couple of weeks.

Always good to catch up with old friends, especially overseas. Saw some in Singapore lately. Interesting to hear the stories people have. Interesting to hear how many opinions still haven't changed. That's cool - mine haven't much either.

There are a few questions I get asked a lot from uni friends - 1) Do you still take lots of photos, 2) Do you still do a lot of bushwalking? I've developed a new answer - which is as of 3 years ago I ceased taking photos, going bushwalking, or seeing any friends. Not completely true, but work does takes the stage most of the time and it takes significant commitment and discipline to do anything else that remotely requires effort.

Having said that, I do miss being out of the city. Anyone want to do a short trip somewhere? Day trip or longer. It's kind of to the point that if someone needs a lift to Geelong, I would almost say yes, just to get a bit of a change in scenery. Not quite, but almost.

On a completely different note, who saw Four Corners last week? I wonder how much training politicians go through to learn how to not answer questions.

So Roger Federer isn't going to win the Australian Open this year. Boo.

I'm still waiting for his comeback though. He's got to win at least one more grand slam! He's got to he's got to he's got to.

C'mon Fed-ex, make 2012 your comeback, we're rooting for you!

December 22, 2011.

Things have been pretty up recently. Not entirely sure why, but feeling pretty good.

I guess I feel like I've been doing some things right lately. The weather has been pretty good too. The days where it has been a bit hot for my liking I've stayed in doors, not noticing it.

Getting a new bed will probably improve things further though. The current bed I have has springs and I think the springs are giving. Making me arch down when I sleep and not sleep as well. I was thinking of taking the bed apart and just sleeping on the matress which will be a lot more comfortable but not sure I have the right tools. Will need to investigate.

Things are ok. That's what's pretty good.
