to all of those who are special to me
south of the equator
way down under in australia
it is already almost christmas day for you
enjoy it as only you can

Is that the ice cream truck or a kookaburra I hear out there?
mom told me that when you hear the music it means the truck is all out of ice cream.
relaxing way to ease into the day, with a stroll by the Indian Ocean, nothing to do but feel the breeze, take in the salt air, feel the winter sun on my face, keep a sharp eye out for shark fins, in Western Australia.
After leaving my house on Sunday at 2 pm, and numerous flights, layovers, and connections, I have somehow arrived at my destination down under And it is Tuesday at 2 pm. After traveling through various time zones and crossing the equator and international dateline, and losing a day and going ahead 13 1/2 hours in my new time zone, here is how I have made sense of it in mathematical form: if e equals mc2 plus add in 1 day plus 13.5 hours plus 2 flight delays and 1 early arrival then I have arrived, though I am very unsure of what time it is. Am I here yet?
leaving tomorrow to spend some time down under in australia.
i plan to enjoy a bit of r & r.
i’ll be posting in between adventures.
