Living it large in Sydney and $$$ are not needed

Hi Sydney.

I'm back, remember me? I lived here about 12 years ago, it was fun but I've changed a lot over the years, and now I'm health concise, my passions are swimming, running and cycling.
It surprises me in some ways, things change and nothing changed, i’ve changed and now I'm back, better than ever and fit too

I no longer drive a car, you might be glad to know, one less car on the road holding you up in the morning as you getting where ever you need to go and I'm going places too, i go the back streets, on my bike.
Some of the reasons i could point as to why i do this might include, i get where i want to go fast, i don't have to wait for buses or trains, i get to explore back lanes, streets, cafes, back streets, new areas

Every day can be treated as a little mystery, i discover new parks, interesting lanes, i get to see your cat sitting up on the back fence, i say hello sometimes if I'm lucky i get a nod of approval.

You can see all kinds of things, if you look

See, even your cat agrees, this is real living, away for the hustle and bustle, noise, expense of getting to where i have to be, I'm free to be me, and i get to smell the roses, tulips too, i know a street that has some, it's not near any main road, it's a magical experience that can expand your perception of where you live

When i first got here cycling was only for people that were unemployed and hippies, people would point at you if you cycled and feel sorry for you, a lot has changed there over the years, for one thing, i got one here last week and i am beginning to see a new Sydney in a new way and all i had to do was be different and now hey presto, i am and it's great!

I can get to all the swimming pools, then maybe go along the river into the city along the river and see a side to life i never experienced before in a car or on foot

Swam here last week, maybe tomorrow too?
I used to tell myself that, 'Cycling is too dangerous here', and that's true if your on the main road, but the back streets have little or no traffic, full of interesting things to see and I'll get there quicker and feel better about eating that pizza last night

Cant afford a bike? There are groups around the city that will help you build one, fix one, service it, yes people, it's all happening here

It’s good to be back Sydney!!

Byron to sin city...thats Sydney to you baby

Can i get an encore, do you want more....?

Well do you? The first line is lifted from Jay Z, who better, maybe that's just the hustler in me, it's been a few weeks since i wrote anything, i've been busy, but not too busy, but not too busy, i can see from the stats that lots of people check out the blog, so this is for you, you know who you are, let me explain reader.

Since i last posted, i began writing a novel, then the time came around, October time and it was time to go south, go south and dance with the devil.

And now i'm in Sydney, staying in the same area that was home 12 long years ago, but a much different person, everything changes and nothing changed, i've changed and that has made all the difference, it's made all the difference to me.

There is no way i could come back here as Kieran Version 1.5, now i think I'm up to about Version 12.6 and it gets better, I'm getting better, especially at saying 'No'

Newtown, one of my homes, homie

'No', i could never say no, last night i could hear all the people on the street, i even went o buy beer for a guy, being out with all the people i used to mingle with holds no appeal, if anything i can see what the lifestyle of drinking has done to some familiar faces and my only concern?

My only concern was to get up early and go swimming, and buy a bike.

A happy day, i can live a balanced life, in the old hood, a Melbourne back streets going from A to B, no one suspects the guy on the back streets, dum de dum, la la la, here i come baby, going to get yea!

Too true, while getting the bike, i found a community centre in Marrickville, just down the road, i never spent much time there, it's not near any beach, the old Kieran was only interested in waves, now I'm making waves in a different way, maybe a few splashes, maybe I'll splash a bit of aftershave?

Hell i didn't even bother exploring it much, how could you walking or in a car, it's not the same

Marrickville, but it's only full of hard working migrants, nothing you'll see in any fashion mag and there is a big festival on tomorrow, hardworking, honest, steal off of them and your in trouble my friend, big trouble!

Now i'm back, bringing you the words, but will the words turn into $$, i think there is a good chance, one of the major rules of blogging, your part of that too my friend, after all your the target customer, you and me, me any you, is 'Dont take too long break from blogging', the break is over.

That's Jay Z would say, 'What mo can i say?'
