Creatively visualising my backside

Thursday, 20 March 2008

I’ve been playing around with a bit of creative visualisation lately and today I put a picture of the very expensive saddle I’d like to buy up in my office. It looks like this:

I’ve decided I will buy this saddle once I’ve achieved two things:

  1. When my nag Charlie Brown is once again safe to ride. We are currently undergoing THEApy with Jo Ragg at Serendipity Equine here in Nelson. We’re making progress on the ground. I'm curious to see how things go next week once we actually start getting on his back!

  2. I can afford it without sacrificing rent, food or other essentials! What can I say, the freelance life has it's ups and downs. Definitely moving in the right direction but not quite there yet.

I’m from the school of thought that pretty much anything can be achieved with the right attitude, flexibility of mind and hard work, but ideally I want my backside to be warming this saddle by April or May.

I was tempted to put a picture of Johnny Depp on my wall beside the saddle, but that’s just silly…


They call me mellow velo

So my brother made it into the Dominion Post yesterday morning. If you live in Wellington you may well have seen him around town. Being laid back is a family trait you see, it's just the application of it that's different.

Continuing on the family theme, today I also created my very first Wikipedia entry!
