Bone on bone leads to 100 laps

I recently wrote about Battling Injury. At that time I was off to see a sports physician. The important things first: this is one very attractive physician. If I was younger and single, I’d have asked for another doctor so I could date this one! Not wanting to identify him, I’m call him Dr A. […]

The Four Seasons of Love

Love is a bud in springtime Fragile, vulnerable Beautiful, tantalising. Rainbows shimmer in spring rain The lovers dream of the gold The golden love to last the ages. Under the warm summer sun The bud blooms Vibrant colour, glorious perfume Beauty, passion, fertility. Autumn’s cool winds blow A petal falls, colour fades, the stem hardens The rose of love […]

Brandis bowled for a duck

Not surprisingly, I was very pleased to see the decision by Cabinet leaving George Brandis high and dry over his proposed 18C changes. Sadly this brings a lot of media coverage to Andrew Bolt, giving his irritating voice a bit more of a megaphonic melodramatic edge than usual. Brandis, the man who says we all […]

Pain

Continued from Blood spurted from the ripped flesh.  If you have just joined this story and wish to start from the beginning, go to What goes around comes around. Jones came to in excruciating pain. “Good, you’re awake.” Jones heard the familiar Australian accent and for a moment thought he was back in Canberra. “Pain”, he croaked, “Give […]

I Don’t Want “Ladies First,” But What’s With These Men?

Originally posted on THE 50 MILLION MISSING CAMPAIGN BLOG ON INDIA'S FEMALE GENDERCIDE:
by Rita Banerji It irritates me when a man fawningly says “Ladies First!” I find it condescending. As a woman I see myself as perfectly able as any man and see no reason for being singled out that way. Yet, by the…

Battling Injury

It would be accurate to say I am very annoyed and frustrated. At myself. I have been participating in the Global Corporate Challenge. It is truly a wonderful event: I love, love, love it. I just forgot to remember two things. I haven’t been too active for about four years I am no longer in […]

Green and Gold

It is easy to see why the national colours of Australia are green and gold. I snapped these at a local park. The native trees are starting to blossom. Click on the gallery to see full size. Green and gold everywhere! Now heavily into Stage 2 of the Global Corporate Challenge, I have been swimming […]

Walking photos

I was so busy celebrating the end of Stage 1 of the current fitness regime, I didn’t share my walk photos. I hadn’t walked as much last week due to the grumpy knee, but I do have some. Not all are flowers. One day was quite overcast and the park near my office was not […]

Stage 1 is DONE! Plus Frightbats, World Refugee Day and High Court wins!

Even the #frightbat saga didn’t manage to pull me away from my stepping. My apologies to our regular readers: I’ve been exercising. That chart doesn’t have today on it yet – but my reading will be 4,200 for cycling, 2,375 for swimming (I only did 500 metres in the pool today) and 7,000 plus a […]

Blood spurted from the ripped flesh

Continued from Destination Madagascar.  If you have just joined this story and wish to start from the beginning, go to What goes around comes around. Jones didn’t sleep. No-one slept. Sometime tomorrow they would see land, yet none of them knew what sort of welcome they would receive. A silence had enveloped the boat, save for the throbbing […]
