The challenge of overcoming fear
allowing oneself to get closer to the edge
to summon all that the mind takes exception to
Means crossing an invisible line
Fighting the light that will break the dark
Being lonely amongst others
Is hard to digest
Trust once broken
leaves an emptiness that cannot be filled.
until human contact is made again
How we stay quiet
when the urge to scream becomes overbearing
can be brave – usually a safety valve in the recesses of thought
Unhealthy quiet control
can be like a steam locomotive
Remembering these times
I cry: Someone loves you
This poem was written by a young forgotten Japanese poet named Misuzu Kaneko (April 11, 1903–March 10, 1930).
ARE YOU AN ECHO?
If I say, “Let’s play?”
you say, “Let’s play!”
If I say, “Stupid!”
you say, “Stupid!”
If I say, “I don’t want to play anymore,”
you say, “I don’t want to play anymore.”
And then, after a while,
I say, “Sorry.”
You say, “Sorry.”
Are you just an echo?
No, you are everyone.

35 books sold in an hour and some memorable moments with friends, colleagues and past students!
My heart is bursting!
I have been so fortunate, not only with having a dream come true but to have the support and friendship of awesome people such as Trideep ( T ) and George at Cinque Lire at Monash University.
Friendship is possibly the greatest thing on earth!
There is a limited amount of time
between the stages in life
Milestones that connect and overlap
Threaded dimentions interlocking with other human emotional stages
Repeated painful cycles periodically occuring
over and over
through stages of life that we cannot understand
No proof of their existence
No denial of their existence
Only self testimony after realisation of their existence
If only the badge we place upon ourselves could be changed
We could feel like the goal keeper
Like those who found the warrior within
who learned control
Publication has occured. A long desired dream has occured.
Keep trying to achieve the things that you imagine in your mind’s eye!
Never give up
