Trying to live a good story.
29 November 2008 | Sydney
I've been trying to think of a name for this blog. We were going to call it 'Doing it now because we can'. Over the last year or two, a few of our good friends died way too early. Barry, Dave, Martina, Kim and my lovely ex, Tony. They all had plans and dreams that they were going to do when they had time/could afford it/retired and now won't be able to. It made us decide that we had to get on while we could, sooner rather than later.
Then we went to see 'Australia' yesterday (which we thought was fabulous, by the way!) I'm not sure if it was true or just a bit of cinematic licence, but it was said that the aboriginal philosophy was to live a good story and that's what we want to do. So that's what we're going to call the blog and hopefully you'll all read it and think that it's a 'good story' too.
