I Fell in Love with This Morning

This morning, I was awake before 6am, so that I could catch the ferry in to Sydney and then get a train to my work.

I had a treat in store for me as I waited on the ferry for it to start its journey, as the sun had risen to perforate the buildings with this amazing, tantalising glow – they just made me feel all warm and happy inside.

It was such a pleasant start to my day – I just wish that the rest of my day made me feel all warm and happy inside – it didn’t!! But then again, sunrises and water are the things that make me feel alive so it’s going to take something pretty darn special to make me feel the way I feel when I witness the sun rising over the ocean.

The Difference is a Nostril

Ah, my giddy heart!! Today, here in Australia, the nation stood still – for today, at 3pm The Melbourne Cup took place. All of my co-workers gathered in a room, drinking champagne, eating nibbles, waiting in anticipation for the horse race to begin.

I had dressed up for the occasion, wearing a rose head peace, my hair was in a 1940’s style and I wore a black, with white spot dress and my heels. I actually had several comments made about how nice I looked, by people who never notice me, so it was a nice start to my day.

I had put a very small bet on ($5) and my horse came in second I won $72 – so I can’t complain, however, if my horse had won – I would have won close to $200, still, I lost no money, no horses were harmed – so all is well. It was actually the closest finish in the history of the Melbourne Cup – literally there was just a nostril between winning and coming in second place.

Gateway to Another Realm

This morning, I rushed out of the apartment (like I so often do), to the ocean so that I could capture would I could see unfolding before my eyes as I had stared out of window out across to the ocean. The sky was absolutely incredible.

For one moment, I thought that if I wished hard enough, I could magically disappear in to another realm – just for a moment or two. Needless to say, it didn’t happen.
