    A day offline 

    Spending the bank holiday offline.

    So, no twitter, email, Google+ or techmeme.

    Reach me by SMS or call, if needed.

    2 days to go… 

    Hills. Lakes. Hills. Lakes. Hills. Hills. Rain. Wind. Sun. Streams. Hills. Lakes. Rain. Wind. Hills. Hills. Chewie. Partner. Friends. Happy. Me.

    Everything in life is about sex. Except sex. Sex is about power.

    It isn’t a calamity to die with dreams unfilled, but it is a calamity not to dream.

    10 days to go… 

    … before I’m back in the hills!

    In these 10 days,

    • we set up an appointment for Chewie to lose parts of his manhood
    • my sister moves to the UK
    • my partner’s sisters visit us for a vacation
    • N, partner’s only girlfriend I constantly hit on, visits us

    And yet, the only thing that gets my heart racing, is the thought of the hills awaiting me at end of those 10 days.

    I love hills :)

    Swam my first 10 length set today. :-)

    After I’d already swum 30 lengths as 7.5x 4 length sets ;-)

    After I’d ridden over 145 km yesterday in and around Chilterns :D

    I’m happy, obviously.

    We all come from the sea, but we’re not all of the sea. Those of us who are, we children of the tides, must return to it again, and again. Until the day we don’t come back, leaving behind only that which we touched along the way.

    You lose everything and you win the war, you’re a hero. You lose everything and you lose the war…. you’re just a fool.
