Looking at things through fresh eyes

  1. Looking at things, in particular my back yard through 'fresh' eyes.:watching:

    Week back into work, and it's same same, diff diff. Will have to start buying the 'set for life scratch-its' you can get in QLD. $20,000 a month for 20 yrs prize doesn't sound too bad to me! (y):joyful:

    I'm wondering almost every hour at work "what I am doing here??". :sorry: And the answer is - money. For unfortunately it makes the world go round, just as the wheels on bikes do in touring. Without it, there's no touring, there's no riding.(n)
    As much as I miss the bike, I know 3 months of life isn't all that big in the scheme of things. But with more and more mornings like this in the GC, it will be a hard pill to swallow not being on 2 wheels. :cry:
    Crack out the little violins - things could be MUCH worse. I just have to think about other people's situations, where mine isn't life threatening.:nailbiting:

    So more and more I'm discovering that a new way of looking at my own backyard, and where to pull magic moments from is becoming more important :love::snaphappy:. I believe this new found appreciation will serve me well in the coming month(s??) depending on luck I guess.

    For it is the little things that count. And the little things that give you a spurt enough to go on towards your goals. :happy::shy:

    Great shots ValvolineValvoline, your stay in Melbourne has certainly honed your photography skills.
    I feel a bit the same way you do at the moment, having to work everyday makes me feel that life is passing me by (my next day off is mid October, a bit of mid winter blues no doubt) hopefully 5-6 more years will see me out and thats what is keeping me going, then some "me" time to explore, until then I'm enjoying the local scenery.

    Andrew WestAndrew West I know right! It was as if the sky was on fire this morning! (I won't tell you what the temp was though... you'll kill me) ;) But if it is any consolation, & 69SIM69SIM can relate to, not being on the bike is the painful part. I guess these photos are prob some of the colours he'll be after his accident... :nailbiting:
