We had a serious wake up call when one of Paul’s footy friends (Australian rules Football for all you international readers) at the young age of 44 suddenly died. Just like that! Gone! Out of time…. When something like that happens so close to home, it is traumatic and really, really hits home. I feel for his two young kids: Abbie and Jeremy. It is not fair! Life and time are harsh and there is nothing fair about either.
There is so much loss and so much heart ache and it is not even caused by any human beings…just life….malfunctioning of organs or expiry date issues so to speak. So, why , are we humans able to make this hard stuff even harder? Creating drama unnecessary, not being kind to ourselves or others? What really hit me during the service for our friend Clarky, was the kindness and the difference he made to others. And that, is basically, I think , what we are here for.
Having read the “hitchhikers guide to the galaxy” the purpose of life is not “42” …it is being there for one another, making a diference, help, being sympathetic and asking “If there is anything I can do to help?’, “I am there for you” …THAT , my friends, is the purpose of life! Compassion.I am sorry to be so “deep” and “somber” on a Friday night but hey, what if you were asked, right now, right here: “would you change anything in your life NOW” Wat would you do? Be kind. To yourself. To others.
Personally, me, at this moment, I cannot think of anything I would do different. I love what I do and I am okay with my view on life and asking people if they are okay and asking if they need help. I am there. In the end, that is what it is all about. Life is about caring and yes, fun!! and a smile!! and being inspiring to others. I think that is the purpose of life. Since I don’t have kids to pass anything on to, I guess all I can do is trying to be the best I can during the time I have. So, Raise your glass to YOU! Cheers! Be happy , be Helpful and Have Fun sharing the Love !

Next blog update though I can assure you there will be an update for a very special sign up of a very critical conservation breed to make its’ appearance!
