Fantastic 90 minute massage at Body Freedom in South Melbourne (cashing in a birthday gift). Spent the time thinking about a short story I wanted to write for a competition, using a photo and the words ‘Stay rude’ for inspiration. After the massage, a slow walk to Docklands, and a pale ale at The Wharf Hotel on the Yarra River, I had the words spewing out of my pen. By page five i thought ‘Wow! i wonder what’s going to happen now?’ and shocked myself when a major arc of the story turned out not to be the case. Shows how much the body, mind and spirit are inc control when in harmony. Hooray for massages and beer!
