Another month has passed and I have not visited, but seems like some people haven’t forgotten me, strangely enough my blog stats haven’t flat-lined (yet)
The months of June and July have been interesting so far. I followed the World Cup here in South Africa, I turned 40, I bought a flat, I cheered half a dozen different teams, I went on fan walks, I attended two World Cup matches live, and I indulged in a huge crush on a talented football player the way I did when I was 12.
Just before I turned 40, a young friend of mine died after a battle with cancer and whenever I remember him now I feel that I have to give thanks to the years, the white hairs and the time I have been given on this planet.
I may not be very young anymore but I can still enjoy simple pleasures and laugh from the bottom of my heart. I am still capable of working hard and staying up all night. I still love my life, and I love it today more than I did in my younger days. I have work to do on this planet, things to see and a young son to raise. I am happy to be part of it all.
More hopefully later when I finish my current project.
