Happy B’Day to me!
Thanks for all the birthday wishes! I’m not massive on celebrating birth days, but I appreciate the love!
Can’t not mention Dad. My father Joe passed away from stomach cancer at the age of 46 when I was 18. His last message to me was to not worry about life without him, and not to worry about getting cancer, and that I will be just fine; “you are lucky”, he told me.
When Dad died I truly gained his strength. I gave myself a deadline of 46 years to do all the things I want to do in life, and fucking hell, at 41 I feel like I’ve done that and SO much more!
So again, thanks to all who wished me a happy B’Day, and thanks to everyone I’ve shared a Zen moment with. I’m so happy with how I’ve turned out (LOL!), and any more time I have in this life is truly just a bonus.
Had quality hangs (and a shoot this time!) with Tonie. Such a great gal, a hippy at heart. I have a thing for hippies!

Star came over for hangs today and we ate a lot, and we drank a lot, and we smoked a lot and we put down a vocal track. It’s rough, but it’s a start!
Have a listen: http://bit.ly/1PELUO4
Star and I were getting blazed the other day (what’s new?!) and we thought we’d have a crack at making a song. It’s a solid start! She’s a killer singer, so I can’t wait for her to lay down some vocals.
My nephew Leo turned 2 yesterday! Cutest little cheeky monkey, ever! #halfie #hessogonnabreakheartswhenhesolder
So cute! Right?!
Krysti buzzed me this morning and asked if I was up for lunch, but I’m sick (I’ve not been sick in years!) and so she came over with all this stuff! What a sweetie! :)

RIP Takashi Amano of ADA (Aqua Design Amano). A man who has single handedly changed aquarium aquascaping, design and culture forever.
I feel that the word “inspired” doesn’t even come close to how this master designer has influenced me over the years. Every time I’m in nature I see things the way he’s inspired me to see things.
I talk a LOT, but apparently I’m a decent shoulder to cry on too. I much prefer kicking someone in the ass when they need it as opposed to sympathising, but over the years I’ve found myself not being so quick to find solutions, and instead, I’m finding myself listening that little bit more and I’ve been feeling pretty good about it.
I’ve got a friend staying with me at the moment, she’s broken and going through some pretty serious issues. I’ve been nursing her like a bird that’s fallen out of it’s nest. Sounds cheesy, but it’s how I’ve been looking at it. It’s been emotionally draining being a shoulder to cry on (but obviously more intense for her than it is for me!), but it’s been real, deep and super rewarding in many ways.
I’ve been listening so much more, and instead of trying to use my brain to come up with solutions, I’ve just been much more patient, wallowing at the bottom with her, taking it all in, bringing home lots of junk food, smoking and drinking lots and just generally letting it all take it’s course. Happy to say she got better every day, cried less and less and today I dropped her off home.
