Why, oh why is there people in this world with so much hate!! I truly cannot understand it. But then, maybe I’m just lucky. Most of the people I see, surf with and talk to everyday are too. Near a beach as beautiful as Currumbin or living in Queensland or any of our great states let alone the best country on the planet, in oh so many ways, Australia!! Lucky! All of us.
Then when things start snowballing like they are around the world I wonder why are we so lucky. Maybe it’s growing up with open minded people who treat one and all the same. Been schooled and helped with medicines freely available to all Australians. The even simpler courtesies of ‘please and thank you’!! I’ve travelled for many years and been to so many places, have seen the best and worst of countless towns with borders dissecting cultures so different it’s hard to explain and for the life of me cannot understand what it is that drives something that should be so good into the evil that seems a daily happening. Just look at the news and any of the social media channels If you need to. Something is wrong. Very wrong! For mine, it needs to be fixed. I don’t have the solution but I do know that a smile goes a long way. Putting down the guns would go further. Stop killing innocent people you radicals!! I’m ranting now but after last night in Paris I’ve had enough. I spend heaps of time there. It’s my favourite city and I feel the pain of the Parisians, France and all of us! Today it was all I thought about and what could help. Not much I could do so instead I went surfing. It pumped all day, we all got loads of waves, spoke to heaps of people , smiled and again I just realised how lucky we are.
Rock on and let’s keep a eye in the cyclone forming up north.
