I think this could be a record cover to the hit single ‘8 years of Staring Into The Sun’ by ‘The Village Idiots’ – on location at beautiful Te Henga Beach in New Zealand.

Today marks my 8 year anniversary of being a nomad. Well, actually, 8 years and 1 day it would appear as the anniversary was the 23rd of November and here in New Zealand, in the future, it is already the 24th. Time traveling, cannot keep it straight in your head. Never mind, it is still the 23rd somewhere! Year 8 has been one helluva bumpy ride, to say the least. But I will save the details of those bumps for another blog post, and just focus on the magic and the reason I have made it to year 9: Charlene. How this grumpy old time-traveler got so lucky I do not know, but no doubt, without that hand to hold, that undying love and support, there would be no roaming the universe.

“There’s a lot of things you need to get across this universe. Warp drive… wormhole refractors… You know the thing you need most of all? You need a hand to hold.” – Doctor Who

    And here is to many, many more my love.

    One of these days The Village Idiots will make an old school “Best Of” album… covers 😉
