"There is an eagle in me that wants to soar, and there is a hippopotamus in me that wants to wallow in the mud" - Carl Sandburg

Think I'd settle for the enigmatic blue whale living in the ocean!

The Hmm & the Wow Factor.... never ceases ;)


Thursday, May 17, 2007


Most of us who follow the game of cricket are well aware of Glenn Mcgrath - the Australian fast bowler. Often in the news for his match winning exploits and for sledging, I recently read something very interesting about him.

In his autobiography, Steve Waugh vividly describes how Glenn Mcgrath arranges his breakfast on tour:

"Eats the same breakfast each morning on tour. He places his two fried eggs on separate pieces of white toast before making sure the yolk is perfectly positioned in the middle, before trimming the overhanging egg white edges with surgical precision. The contents are then cut into quarters after being doused with a three second barrage of salt. It's a real shame to see him eat it such is the masterpiece he creates."

I find it amazing....(for want of better descriptive words). The closest I have come to experience something of this sort is with this friend of mine who loves Chilly cheese toast. She is very particular (to the point of being finicky) about the exact amount of cheese and chillies. One thick spread of cheese, evenly spread out, and just 2-3 very small cut pieces of green chilli spread across - so it gets melted along with the cheese and there is a mild chilli flavour. 4 small chilli pieces would make it spicy and 'unenjoyable' - our lady won't touch the toast. And a dash of tomato sauce. For her masterpiece :)

A beautiful full moon dancing her regal dance in the dark sky,
the rhythmic serenity of the waves splashing on the shore,
the cold breeze bringing goosepimples to your skin,
stretching into the vast expanse of sand and sea, glistening in the moonlight...

And to capture that moment!
