A Higher Level

Sunday 6 August 2017

With any luck at all the last several days will be the worst and done. Perkier today Jan drove to meet me biking at the Bat Cave (Lucky Bat Cafe) for coffee and a stroll through Nightcliff Sunday market. This was the high point of our day and no more need be said about it.

There has been some loose talk about going to the pool tomorrow for laps. Despite days in the upper 30s (around 90 F) pool water has been low twenties. Having sworn off anything below 28 , will hope Jan changes her mind, take shorty wetsuit or fake anthracnose (Jan may not realize this is not transmitted to humans from avocados).

Tuesday

Wild tittle-tattle blossomed into reality yesterday morning as we got another punch on Casuarina Public Pool cards. Water was 27.8 C, dramatically below personal cutoff, but, not wanting to look like a sissy, jumped in without wet suit. Heart attack averted, extra adrenalin helped with first few laps, but dangly bits became a misnomer. Oh, the price paid to be a stud muffin.

Speaking of sacrifice, awoke at 0630 this morning then actually out of bed by 0645 to get Johnson outboard to shop near Palmerston by 0800. Then, not satisfied with level of personal abuse, rode bike into Darwin to replace iPhone battery that would last for about 10 minutes under use. For $79 it should now do at least 20.

Wednesday

Jan continues to feel much better and went to yoga class this morning. Every time I've looked in they're lying still on the floor with eyes closed. Who knew enlightenment could be so easy? In fact, had already discovered that higher consciousness is all about relaxation. Have no problem with laziness, but suspect this isn't the intent. Tried Transcendental Meditation for a number of months several years ago and was nearly torpid with enlightenment. Gained insight that no further incentive to lay about was necessary and that my Tao tends more toward confusion and bewilderment, so gave it up.
