What the hell am I doing here….

There are times that I just sit back and wonder… and think…. and wonder what the hell am I doing here…

When I look back on these past few years… it seems that everything has just become more intense. Living life has become more of a challenge, people have become more difficult… and slowly… it seems life has just become so bloody intense that it may not be worth trying anymore…

2010 had to be one of my most intense years… One thing I will have to admit up to is that July was filled with absolute jubilation with the FIFA World Cup and all the celebrations… At that time – it was the first and most realistic time that all South African’s were lifted off to a different planet of BEing… just to BE and bask in the awesomeness of oneness….

But the Soccer World Cup ended… the flags were taken down and everyone was to get about their normal lives once again…. Me included…

There too was another failed relationship…

Of course…. my smiley face and jubilant personality still burst out to everyone… and I hid my misery… Sharing it only with my Jesse….

Then the fairy tale began when a man in shining armour stepped up to my desk one afternoon… with a request that I just couldn’t say no to…

Nah…. he wasn’t MY man in shining armour…. he was merely a client from a year ago who came back asking me to take care of his Golden Retriever… He and his family were due to immigrate to Australia in a few months and they couldn’t bare the thought of putting their boy through all the shit and quarantine restrictions and asked if I would take him on…. Here is were I met another family of friends…..
