"The ocean takes care of each wave until it gets to shore" - Rumi

It's crazy to think that I'm nearing the 5 year anniversary of moving to Melbourne. So much has happened. My career took a new direction after I gave up what was seemingly my dream job and after a solid 4 years of hard work and many steep learning curves I have the promotion and the job that I often doubted was within my reach.  I have a few weeks break before the new chapter begins.  I thought I would cry as I said goodbye to the office that was my second home, but I didn't.  I had cried when I was updating my resume 5 weeks prior.

I have my draws to empty and years of paperwork to file (which is sitting in the back seat of the car).  New profiles to write.  New networks to build.  A huge exhibit I'm working on for the Australian Open.  And lots of spring cleaning to do. (I spent most of the morning degreasing and polishing the oven and it's looking damn fine).

Here's to new beginnings, including some warm weather (wishful thinking as it's November and I still have the heater on!!!)

These photos were snapped last weekend on a rare warm and sunny day at Hampton Beach.  It's odd though isn't it.  When I lived in St Kilda I drove to the beach in Brighton and now that I live in Brighton I drive to the beach in Hampton.  The way I'm going I'll be living in Sorrento in 20 years (one can only hope!!)

Not much into betting on horses, but my pick for tomorrow is Drunken Sailer.  Can't go past the name.  Who's your pick?

Outfit notes - Bracelets-Sisco Berluti. Blazer-Zara. Singlet-Witchery. Flats-Witchery. Skirt-Supre. Necklace-Peeptoe

    I think the beach is better in Brighton/Hampton compared to St Kilda anyway.

    I think that what you said was very logical. However, consider this, what if
    you were to create a awesome headline? I ain't saying your content isn't good, but what if
    you added a headline to maybe get people's attention? I mean ""The ocean takes care of each wave until it gets to shore" - Rumi" is kinda plain. You ought to look at Yahoo's front page and watch how they write article titles to grab viewers to click.
    You might add a related video or a picture or two to get readers excited about what you've got to say. In my opinion, it would bring your posts a little bit more interesting.

    I almost never comment, however i did a few searching
    and wound up here ""The ocean takes care of each wave until it gets to shore" - Rumi".
    And I actually do have a couple of questions for you if you do not mind.
    Is it just me or does it seem like some of these responses appear
    like left by brain dead folks? :-P And, if you are posting at other social sites, I would like to keep up with anything fresh you have to post.

    Could you list of every one of your shared pages like
    your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?

    Hey would you mind letting me know which web host you're using? I've loaded your blog
    in 3 completely different internet browsers and I must say this blog loads a lot
    quicker then most. Can you recommend a good web hosting provider at a reasonable
    price? Thank you, I appreciate it!

    Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any widgets I
    could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates.
    I've been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this. Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.

    somewhere? A design like yours with a few simple adjustements would really make my blog stand out.
