Twinkle, Twinkle

When I was young, in front of my house was a star. Year before I was born, my grandfather had diligently marked it out as a flower bed in the big front garden. By the time I arrived on the scene, my grandfather was gone, the star had sunk and was filled with grass.

For me is was my favourite place in the world. I sat in one of the stars spokes and gazed up into the sky. It didn't matter if it was day or night. It was a place to dream of other planets, great adventures and men landing on the moon.

Today the star is gone from the garden replaced by a drive for two cars. But its memory still lives on and when I close my eyes I am there again, traveling through the stars.

To my long gone grandfather, thank you for the dreams.

Holiday Tan

Just back from two weeks in the sun. The sun was hot, the sea salty and the Spanish won the world cup. Fireworks, singing and deafing noise. They know where the car horn is.

I am nice and tanned. But exhausted after my first day back in work. I had to put my kickboxing off until Thursday.

Adios for now
