Life is a fickle thing. A funny and warm and beautiful fickle thing, filled with love if we let it be so.

But there are positives.
This blog is perhaps a reaction to change around me. And maybe in some way it will influence change well beyond me.
Can I change the world? I think so, I certainly want to.
How am I going to do that?
I'm not quite sure yet, but I'll keep you posted.

I've been contemplating a new look for work, and I think this just might be it. I mean, there are enough watches to never be late again, a collar to look professional, black and white for the cultured edge, swimwear for the regular lunchtime swim, glasses to create the intelligent look, ear phones to prevent from actually being disturbed... Yep I reckon he's fit to be my next patient.
I'm not sure I'd find anything wrong with him, but there's no harm trying.

I took some photos of my other half today down at the beach too - anyone want to see him? If I get enough interest (and he objects weakly enough) then I'll post him too!

Where is the world's cutest city?
I was chatting with a work colleague today who was travelling to Cornwall just because her travel companion was a keen viewer of a TV show based there... and it made me think, why do we go to some of the places we go? And if we had more insight - might it change our travel plans?
Cities should have a cuteness rating, that is, for the cuteness of the men in those cities, to enable we discerning travellers to best plot out travel itineraries...
In my travels the most highly rated cities are Berlin and Gothenburg ( a narrow margin but Berlin is currently on top) based purely on aesthetics (although positive interactions socially with the Swedes do give them a slight edge). It might be to do with the tall nordic/northern germanic good looks and outdoorsedness which I am rather partial to... But I know it makes me want to go back for more! Conversely, Bucharest is at the other end of the scale, and there isn't a whole lot else about it to draw me back there either.
Where is YOUR cutest city?

Those of you who have seen the movie Shortbus (which I highly recommend) will recognise Jay from it. He sings in the movie once or twice and he's great. We have conversed briefly by email and he's really sweet and its worth having a listen to his music. For more, click here: Jay Brennan

I'm not a big fan of bluebottles. I don't know who is. I was seconds from diving in for the North Bondi Ocean Classic swim when it was called off, and hundreds of earlier wave swimmers returned home casualities of the blue bottle plague blown into the bay... But look at them up close and they can be incredibly beautiful. Painfully beautiful. Curious how some of the most beautiful things - are also the least friendly...

Why do we strive for conformity? - We buy the brands that 'celebrities' buy, watch the tv shows everyone watches, go on holidays to the places that are popular... I guess if people look good in what they're wearing or driving or holidaying... then we think we might also look good - and become as popular or glamorous... I find increasingly the most attractive people are the ones who find their own way - defy the crowds - wear things a little different - do things that aren't exactly commonly done, but it works for them - and they are more interesting and appealing.
