Fourteen days into the New Year and all’s well. Of course it is – it’s summer Downunder. It’s early in the morning but the beach is alive. On the water, surfers are making the most of some impressive waves. .
On the sands and promenade, joggers, power walkers and families with kids – most with balloons from a membership drive for the local footy team, participate in the goings on.
By the way, “Go the Gold Coast Suns” and thanks for the fantastic greeting.
A Tigermoth with sightseers didn’t waste any time this morning and two beautiful greyhounds have just loped languidly past.
… and Heroes, well Whitey and the blokes have just zipped past on their state of the art bicycles…
…and the AFL football players have taken up where the Magic Millions thoroughbreds left off during the week – sprinting down the beach to the delight of beach goers. .
Down south, the Australian Open Tennis is about to start in Melbourne while the Cricket and the A-League soccer, the tip of a sporting iceberg down here at the moment, are in full flight.
The buzz of expectation is palpable so it’s hard not to be caught up in the excitement.
Yet, for me so far in 2012 – I can say definitively, there’s not much happening as I await the Call/rejection letter for my first manuscript with ever decreasing length of fingernails. I’m trying to smile and be communicative. 🙂
That said, trying to use my time judiciously, dividing it between books #2 – (nearly done) and #3 – (outlined), plus read everyone else’s wonderful blogs and websites while I wait , is really hard.
The more you read, the less you write but still one needs to keep up and continuously enhance one’s knowledge.
Maybe I’ll go for a run along the beach.
Aaaah Queensland – beautiful one day …… dissolving the next.
Sounds like a genuinely soggy summer up your way, WendySue. Hope you’re managing to keep your socks dry or at least keeping your head above water.
