These photographs were taken during our trip North to Perenjori this past Sunday. On the drive back from Mike’s footy game we paused to take in the spectacular sunset. You just don’t see these colours in the city… except now in the morning we do get to enjoy epic sunrises from our bed… as we over look the city and Perth Hills. Our move has been so refreshing.
My darling has flown back to work this morning and I’m now missing and will be waiting for him until he returns next week.
To help burn off some steam I hit the gym tonight for the first time. It felt so good! It’s been the first bit of exercise I’ve done for 2 weeks as I’ve been monitored with a heart device and previously have generally felt really weak. I had a strange episode two weeks ago and was put under surveillance to see if there is an issue with my heart. The worst part was the wires that stuck to me to take records, left terrible burn marks and itch to all hell! I’m finally free of the device and am just waiting on the results.
I lieu of getting fresh air and general exercise I’ve been taking the time to dive into a book that I started way back in JAPAN. It’s a behemoth, by John Steinbeck.
It’s a deep, dark novel, but the words…they are like poetry. Steinbeck describes the smallest of moments in a way that you can understand and acknowledge in yourself… his work highlights the subtly of human interaction and the unchanging pattern of our existence. Humans will continue to love, hate, kill, breed, waste time…
My friend said the story sounded depressing and she was right.
That being said, I’m in the tail end of the novel and I cannot stop myself from reading it.
On that note, I bid you adieu. I’m going to polish it off.
