The current weather radar for Australia Day is looking pretty grim for the east coast. A downgraded cyclone has lashed up north and now the coast gets the water and the wind. From the Far North down to Central Queensland is already flooding with the coastline communities just north of Brisbane copping a shellacking from tornadoes!?!?!? We never get them near the coast. Weird times. Weird weather. Buckle up, cos its been a mild summer and I think we’re about to get the sting in its tail.
I think too much. Some topics go round and round my head so much I don’t remember what started it.
I am the sort of person who likes to be prepared. I plan. I plan everything. I plan what might happen. I plan what won’t happen in a million years. It’s not all bad. Sometimes I crack myself up completely. I have been busted rolling around on the floor. And I’m ok with that. I don’t mind if you think I’m nuts.
I like daydreaming. I like my imagination. I don’t mind that it gets whatcha might call “fantastical” at times. But I don’t like to worry. This I do too much. It affects my sleep. It hurts my head. It makes me grind my teeth…which also hurts my head.
So, in the name of the institution of New Years resolutions, I begin my trial of the “great written dump”. Each night I’m going to fill a page of what happened that day, maybe what might happen tomorrow, shopping lists, a knock-knock joke – whatever is rattling around my stupid noggin. I’ll put it all down and lay it to rest. I’m hoping sleep will come easier to an empty head.
As far as my annual tarot reading goes, it’s game on for 2013. According to these cards, the end of 2012 was full of irritable niggle and restless dissatisfaction. No kidding!
The next steps, however, are in clear air and full of good potential. One issue will be the need to keep moving along this new path and deal with the old ways crumbling without needing to blow everything to hell in the process. Temper temper!
If you’re debating whether to give something new a go, but hesitate because you think you’re too old to begin an “apprenticeship”, consider where you’ll be this time next year if you don’t make a start…in exactly the same place you are now.
2013 is not the year to stagnate, ladies and gentlemen. Hang on tight or you may be left behind.
