Pieces of the puzzle

o, my wingman started a jigsaw puzzle on Friday. It was a present. One he received following a significant birthday this week. The recent turning of the clock ticking over the emergence of his new age. When you turn seven, doors to growing up seem to continually open. He can now legally shot-gun for the …

See-sawing

So, I have a friend who rides a see-saw life. Sometimes, the see-saw will ride high. When they’re up there, they tell me that the sky-view is limitless and it fuels the inspiration for their amazing dreams. When the bounce of life’s see-saw lifts my friend up, their visions are vivid and easily shared. Seeds …

AFL love

So, I fell out of love with football when I was 8 years old. Back then, football was a Saturday afternoon thing. We parked our car on the boundary-line and I would watch my dad play across the hilly grounds of the outer eastern suburbs. Watching was a loose word. Really, I climbed willow trees …

Surface Clean

So, I can home last week to a structured, ordered and clean life. My lover and I had been granted a week’s leave pass. An international one at that. It had been granted to us by my mum and dad who even though it was mid-winter and even though they were due for their northern …

Dopamine love

So, yesterday my brother-in-law put on a smile and went for a swim. I’m told the waves were pretty big. Dark and heavy clouds reflected from across the sky chopping the water all up in grey. As for my brother-in-law, well, he’s not really much of a swimmer. So he’s been cutting local pool laps …
