Cartoon Heroes & Common Sense

Since I began recovering from my back injury, started the pain management sessions in the form of self hypnosis, and began exercise rehab, I wake up every morning feeling like this guy!  One of my favourite childhood cartoon heroes.

In the last two months I have been so full of energy that my usual optimistic self is extra optimistic.  Kim asks me how I do it.  Well, I suppose the power of suggestion during the hypnosis helps, so does the exercise and the knowledge that I am still getting stronger, but I think it maybe something else.  That something else is having a big goal.

My goal is (with your help) to tread very lightly on the Earth, and keep it livable for future generations of not only humans, but every species that inhabit the planet. 

A lofty goal I know, but one I attempt to make a reality each and every day.  Little by little I am achieving a sustainable, simple, and joyful lifestyle.   Common sense really,  but hard to come by in this crazy, mixed up, conspicuous consumer society we live in.  Some would look at me as the odd one out, but I believe they are the individuals out of touch with reality!


Yes, my super hero friends, common sense is so rare these days it must be a super power!

    Hi Gavin,
    On a friday evening I’m a bit like the thunderbirds “Miss Penelope” in need of a driver!!
    Sorry to steal a line from a Ben Lee song but I think this sums things up; “We’re all in this together”. Thanks for the daily inspiration.
    p.s. the potatoes and chickpea curry went down a treat. It’s now on the tuesday curry night menu.
