That I feel sun cream would have been a wise move this morning.
After spending the afternoon in a bar to use Wifi (our router in the apartment isn’t working today) I opted for the ferry into Circular Quay. I don’t know why but I assume the beer, blue skies and ocean breeze had a major part to play. I had to leave the bar as my laptop died with no charging port in sight, off I go to find a cafe with one in close reach.
It’s times like these that I realise these little spur of the moment decisions are all I want. To walk down the street and choose a path there and then. To jump on a ferry that just docked and spend the time on the waves wondering what to do when I get there.
My sunburnt torso is in no way an example of risk comparable to the corpses on top of Everest or the shipwrecks at the bottom of the sea, but doing life DIY slowly loosens the shackles that so much of our time is spent in, with often only minor repercussions. It is great excersise for the brain to increase motivation, to do more and see more. Your decision today to do one thing differently may lead to the biggest changes over a year.
Quick update, I did get there.
