  • I've got my trusty camera at the ready. I'm at the City Beach cricket nets, practising my pace bowling action. The camera is observing my every run up, jump, release, and follow through. I'm looking forward to playing cricket next season.

    I look to the west. There's something unique about West Australian sunsets. Perhaps it's the gamut of colours in the sky, or the south westerly known as the 'Doctor' that continually blows in my face, or that dry air that lets me know that the nature wants to spend this evening with me.

    There's a word for something like this. Selah. It's Hebrew for "rest", or something like that. For me, the outdoor environs of my city provide those selah moments.

    It's evenings like these that I'm reminded this city wasn't designed for indoor, office work. It's environment was designed to be enjoyed. I know it's unrealistic to think that everyone can work outdoors, but making time to simply enjoy it, makes me reflect, stop and appreciate more.

    If you ever get the privilege of coming down under, don't forget to visit the west coast. And don't forget your camera.
