all is new

I got into university. I am studying now.

I moved to a new city. I am living there now.

Below this apartment, the traffic roars.

I met someone amazing. I´m not going to add more.

I am pinching myself to see if this is really real now.

Once again it is the famine or the feast. Out of the blue all of these things have come together. This pattern seems to repeat itself with regular occurance in my life.


It rained the other day. The first time it has rained since I have been back in Australia. Months. I missed it a lot.

Sitting in a quiet pub in suburban Dublin talking to my friends and telling them how as a child I used to get excited by the prospect of it raining, I would watch my friend´s amazement. It rained nearly every day while I lived in Dublin. It´s taken for granted. But this week, like an enthused child, I lay out on a inner city balcony , back against the wall and legs in the rain - just like I did as a youngster and it felt just as good.
