Since my last post I have traveled to Victoria again where lost my new phone with the awesome camera. I returned home to discover my just out of warranty computer had died, realized that the fridge is on it's last legs (puddles of water appear on our floor every morning) and after three days at home traveled to Ramingining where I misplaced some important work documents...

Oh yeh and my favorite piece of urban bushland has been bulldozed to so that the good people of Darwin can enjoy a new indoor trampoline leisure centre!

Having just read Bukowski's 'Ham in Rye', I figured that's just the way she goes sometimes.

I usually find peace on my bicycle, but lately I haven't been able to make time to go for any  decent rides. However the Wednesday morning kayak jaunts are a pretty great way to escape the humdrum and sometimes the atmosphere is divine. Last week as we launched, a large black cloud mass rolled across the sky toward us. As the storm approached the wind picked up and pushed us in exactly the direction we wanted to go. It was awesome! If I'd had a decent camera I reckon I could have taken some amazing photos of the illuminated kayaks in the foreground encompassed by a black mass of whirling, converging high pressure, low pressure, moisture friction air and electricity.

Unfortunately the photo above is a low quality duplicate of a low quality photo I copied from my facebook page.... The original is on the broken computer.

Eh.... what do you want for 50 cents?
