not a poem...

This is not a poem.

I decided on the 5th November (last year)
that I wanted to move to Melbourne.
On the 6th November
I met the most amazing woman
I have ever met.
And during our first two hours together,
in a crowded, noisy bar
I told her that I wanted to do this.

This same night we discovered a mutual appreciation for:
Museums, goat's cheese, Alice in Wonderland, avocado, sci fi, Star Wars,
the Muppets, children's books...
the list could go on for quite some time...

Yesterday morning,
the 22nd of June
my third morning in my new home,
I met with this amazing woman again.

and we spent three precious and special hours together,
having breakfast, coffee, exploring the back streets & alleyways
and shops
of one of the most beautiful cities in the world.

She is just about to embark on her own journey.
I am just gladdened that
(before she left)
she got to visit me in my new home...

One that I told her about
eight short months ago,
in the Golden Barley Hotel.

Sweet Princess Jess!!
Keep in touch...
