Darwin

Considering I’ve been rotting here in Melbourne for the last 3 weeks, I’ve booked my flights to Darwin where the weather is consistently 32 degrees, and where my cocktail by my resort swimming pool awaits me! Highlights include:

Day 1 The Florence Falls (opportunity to swim in the plunge pool), the Buley Rockhole and then visit Tolmer Falls for a magnificent view of the water cascading down below. Finally, to Wangi Falls for a climb to the top with Aboriginal elders.

Day 2 Im kinda over jumping Crocodiles but what the heck, why not face saltwater crocodiles close up as they leap out of the water to snatch their food!

Day 3 we will experience our tour to the Jim Jim Falls and Twin Falls which are a ‘must see’ on our Kakadu itinerary. We will travel through the savannah woodlands of Kakadu which appears lifeless, but has more fauna diversity than the Daintree rainforest. We will camp there for two days and hopefully not get eaten up by crocodiles lol.

Day 4 sunset Sailing Cruise relaxing under sail on our spacious sailing catamaran whilst watching one of Darwin’s famous sunsets sipping on some white wine.

Day 5 laze by the resort pool with tropical cocktails and some pampering.

I promise you I won’t miss you Melbourne.

Global epidemic – ADHD

How do we educate our children to take their place in the economies given that we cant anticipate how the economy is going to look next week? We are trying to meet the future by doing what they did in the past. We are alienating our kids by using this ancient education system built for the industrial revolution. Public education was a revolutionary idea. It was driven by an economic imperative at the time. Real intelligence consists nothing of academic activity! Many brilliant children think they are not because they are being judged by this model. They suffer the modern epidemic – ADHD! These kids are being medicated as routinely as we have our tonsils taken out. Our children are being bombarded with information from computers, from iphones from advertising from hundreds of tv channels. They are getting distracted from what? BORING stuff – school! These kids are being given drugs to get them to concentrate! What is going on????!?!?! This is a fictitious epidemic. We need change. We shouldn’t be putting our children to sleep to get them through the education. We should be waking them up to what is inside of themselves.
