Dad update

Now, for those who don't know, Dad had a quintuple heart bypass a couple of months ago.

I got an email from Mum today updating me with Dad's news.

It seems that after they got back from Brisbane after Dad's checkup (See here) Dad went back to work, and then caught the flu from the young lad who works with him. Because of the state of Dad's immune system after the op, he was very sick for several weeks, even to the extent of him having to sleep upright in a lounge chair because he couldn't lay down.

Mum also caught the same bug, but she was able to wack it around with anti-biotics.

Dad was finally feeling beter this week just gone, so Mum and Dad have restarted their nightly walks.

Dad went bad to work, and then on Friday he had a dizzy spell and fell. Smashed his glasses, and has cuts under and over his eye, on the forehead, side of face and his nose. Thankfully no glass ended up in his eye.

Of course when this happened Mum had to be out on a job (Mum's the only computer person in the town!) so most of the guys Dad works with were driving around town trying to find Mum to let her know that he was in hospital.

Mum does own a mobile phone, but I bet it was at home, turned off. She usually only uses it while away from St George.

Oh dear.

Anyway, it looks like Mum and Dad are going to be driving up to Brisbane next weekend. Probably stay Saturday night in Toowoomba, come down to Brisbane Sunday and go to the Ekka. So it looks like I am going to the Ekka next week. It'll be good to see them again.

Desert Rose

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of fire
Those dreams are tied to a horse that will never tire
And in the flames
Her shadows play in the shape of a man's desire

This desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

And as she turns
This way she moves in the logic of all my dreams
This fire burns
I realize that nothing's as it seems

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of rain
I lift my gaze to empty skies above
I close my eyes
This rare perfume is the sweet intoxication of her love

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

Sweet desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

Sweet desert rose
This memory of Eden haunts us all
This desert flower
This rare perfume, is the sweet intoxication of the fall
