Phar Lap In The Melbourne Museum by Peter Porter

Unfortunately, this poem is more recent than I had realised and is still under copyright. However, it can be read at the Australian Poetry Library, where you can also download it for a small (around $2) fee. I highly recommend taking the time to read it. It is an excellent piece.

Cruising the Pacific

PacificPearl_Afeature

The time is finally nearly here. Thanks to generosity of my mother, I will be heading out with Butterfly on a Pacific Islands Cruise on Monday. I am really looking forward to it. It will be nice to have some peace and quiet. Plus, reading about the ship and everything that is included, it looks like so much fun.

We are travelling on the Pacific Pearl and visiting the Isle of Pines, Noumea and Mare. I am so excited. I am really looking forward to it.

Don’t worry, though, I am scheduling my blog posts before I leave, so you guys will still have awesome daily content to peruse while I am away.

Avoiding Arrest With Magic

Suicide Season

This author is incredibly talented and his entire blog is worth reading. This particular post, however, really resonated with me. I, like many of you, have been guilty of allowing my dreams to fall by the wayside. For me, my main hurdle is fear. Fear that I am just not good enough. Fear that I will fail like so many others. Fear that my dreams are not compatible with those of my loved ones and I will be forced to make a choice. Yet, allowing my fears to keep me from pursuing my dreams is, in itself, a choice. Following your dreams is a difficult path to take and chances are you will not be comfortable and you will not have it easy. Is it worth the risk? Only you can decide.

‘Ignoring your passion is slow suicide. Never ignore what your heart pumps for.’

  • Kevin Claiborne

Let’s play a game of Russian Roulette.

You and I are seated at a table in a smoke filled room; there’s an old six shooter positioned perfectly between us with a single round floating in one of its chambers. The heavy aromas of mildew and fear cling to your skin causing you to perspire. We’re alone. There’s no one here to save us; the only entrance to the cell is destined to remain locked until only one of us remains. You’re scared. So am I. Our lives have been reduced to this moment where we’ll play a game of chance to see who survives. Nothing else matters right now. It’s just you and I.

There’s a coin beside the gun. We’ll flip to see who shoots first. I pick it up and use my thumb…

The Scratch

The need came on suddenly. I tried to ignore it but my body was acting before I new it. I closed my eyes in order to savor the intense sensations. A pleasant feeling spread through my body as my hand moved faster and faster. The pleasure reached a crescendo, causing my knees to weaken and my legs to tremble. I sighed with relief.

Man, it feels good to scratch!
