Oh the humanity? Sounds hotter than the Hindenburg. AHA! The side bar.. I wondered what was making the formatting different. Yes, we do need it back again. The lack of sidebar does weird things with custom sizing of the blog photos... Bring back the sidebar Bring back the sidebar Bring back the sidebar Bring back the sidebar

Swim attendance was on the low side today… Probably because getting down into the water this morning presented a modicum of discomfort. Discomfort occurs when there is a change in your world; your external (or internal) environment. This morning it largely involved a ch, ch, change in temperature. Once you... Continue reading

We generally remember our experiences as good or bad... Awesome or crappy, because that's what sticks in our mind. However, the majority of life is an under examined 'ordinary'. Ordinary is a wide band on the quality of life spectrum, spanning the space between awesome and crappy. If your life... Continue reading

The sun has been an inspiration since before neolithic people conceptualised it being carried across the sky on a barge; and with good reason too. Nature can provide us no deeper symbol that hope, renewal and a second chance is just around the corner than that of the rising sun.... Continue reading

…It’s how the ocean gets salty. The salt occurs due to the reaction involved when rainwater erodes rocks on the land. The resulting salt ions are then washed into the ocean. Much of these ions are consumed by marine micro organisms, those that aren’t become the salts that make up... Continue reading

The view we are afforded through any window is defined by its position and the limitation of how it has been framed. In stark contrast, the outlook we can absorb during our morning swim is unbounded. Though unapparent at first, with such freedom comes responsibility. It is now you who... Continue reading

Society, like nature, is a self organising system. One of the defining qualities of such a system is the ability to establish order following a critical phase of chaos. From the turbulence emerge new properties, new synergies and new information. This results in a system wide shift, a refinement on... Continue reading

In my previous blog we compared our outer and inner voyages. Those mental journeys into which we dive. Analogous to a swim in our vast ocean, whose distances and depths extend so they may as well be endless. Whose current, tides, tempests or calm, depend on the coordinates we set... Continue reading

Every morning we head out there, a journey into the ocean to find something more to add to our lives, something that fuels us. But you can’t keep heading out forever. Sooner or later we must return, bringing our experience back to solid ground. To the here and now. We... Continue reading

Breathing. We are talking about breathing... Because it's important, it keeps you alive, but how often do you think about it? Consider poor dolphins. They always have to think about their breathing, consciously ensuring their blowhole is above the water before they let themselves take a breath. Then what happens... Continue reading

There’s usually a sharply increased awareness of the Coriolis effect at this time of year whilst entering the morning swim. Earth’s rotation moves the ocean surface left of the northerly winds, allowing cold water to spiral its ascent onto our beaches, bringing with it a little discomfort. But this shall...

Kierin, I'd like to say it's my impressive equipment... But it's just the red B&B camera, plus taking the time to play around with basic editing of contrasts and cropping etc before uploading them. Thanks for reading my blog. That makes two of you (...hi Mum)

It's almost the end of December. That time we make resolutions for the new year...

Thanks Kierin, It was great to see the turtle this morning. Also, there's a link to a longer article there too. I try to limit myself to a few paragraphs on the BnB blog. Thanks again.
