There are days when the world gets the better of me.
Those who know me quite well will realise that I'm understating that a touch. But let's just say that I can get a bit cross.
Today is such a day. The reasons aren't terribly important, being small and unimportant individually. However, there are so many of the damned things that their interactions and consequences are getting me down.
So I let my mind wander to a quiet, peaceful place. For me, that's Eungella National Park in Queensland, Australia.
Australia? you might say, That's a very long way for a Brit fella to let his mind wander, isn't it?
Yep. But damn, it's quiet up here. I can see a long, long way. The mountains in the far, deep left of the background are twelve or thirteen miles away, and the towns like Finch Hatton and Owens Creeks are too small to see. The photo really doesn't do it justice.
I'm told that some nutters like to hang-glide from more or less where I'm standing; I hope they're careful to avoid the tree.
But man, imagine the freedom.
I'm calmer already.
