This way

Delicious warm winds
Lick and curl
Wide grins overtake faces
Undeniable beauty of joy
Out-sticking tongues of cheek
Happy voices glint
Skipping & sparking their dance
Of undeniable truth
Vitality reverberating
Like attracting like
As it does
I know
You know
Love is sent out into the world
Not in letter, poem, song
Or flowers left on a windscreen
But cosmic parcel
Par Avion
Record of receipt not required
Yet futility in resistance
If you want to
Smile if you feel it
And pass it on
To others
Be contagious
And amazing

FAR OUT. What a big year this has been for all sorts of reasons. I can't even begin to tell you. Much laughter and love, as well as tears and doubts at times. Things I'm exceedingly proud of and some things not so much. But I'm a glorious imperfect human being and all good with that. Stuff I've started down the track of that are to be continued with even greater vigor (watch this space). Things I've embraced, or merely pushed on through, to other things that I've actually run away daunted and hid from for a time - only to come back with a far greater understanding than I ever thought possible.

Friendships, both old and new, which seem based in something so extraordinarily real they never cease to amaze, inspire and warm me. And some which came and went so fleetingly that perhaps they were just figments of my imagination, but nevertheless added something valuable to the texture. And even more of an appreciation for the simple things that make me smile day in and day out no matter what is going on.

This photo I snapped just a few days ago while goating around with some pals at the most gorgeous Wharariki Beach pretty much sums up how I feel about life. It's MAMMOTH and a barrel of FUN and I LOVE it. This year has been a continuing adventure in my totally wicked ever evolving journey. Enlightened, exuberant and most excellent is the only way I can think of to sum it all up just now - BOING! BOING! - and if it doesn't just keep getting better and better, I'll bloody well eat my hat.
