Wow, another year. Hoping the new one is a good one for you all. No time for writing from me lately due to my full immersion into all that is biking in South East Qld and I’ve also taken to the water a bit by kayak to visit gems like the Enoggera Reservoir, Boondall Wetlands and Hayes Inlet. Mostly under my own steam – human powered and unmotorised with the exception of actually getting the kayak to the water but I have plans to remedy that as well. It’s largely been off road biking (though there was a visit to QAGOMA) as well because escape from the artificial, the commercial, the busy, the excessively convenient is what I’m aiming for as much as possible. I think I’ve been trying to move to another plane by doing all this – another reality. I think I’ve almost succeeded.
So close, yet so far away. I’m realising more and more that travel and adventure are mind states more than kilometres traversed or big money paid for “epic” experiences. Sure, I’m lucky to live in this place that has so much to offer but I think it’s also a case of perspective – making the effort to see what’s right under your nose, seeing the beauty, the glass half full. With that, I think a lot of places have something special to offer.
Happy New Year everyone and see you out there sometime.
