We had a discussion today about global warming and how there are ridiculously educated people who for some reason still don’t believe that man-made climate change is real. Well it’s early October and today it was 31 degrees celsius (88F) which is very unusual for this time of year.

While I genuinely worry for the future of the planet that we are living on, the idea of a long hot summer spent naked on beaches does appeal. I can’t work out if it’s a silver lining or if the lining is melting off but I’ll look on the bright side.

Something that I haven’t done for a few years now is go for cheeky night time skinny dips at appropriate, carefully selected places around Sydney. There was a bunch of us that used to get together for a cheeky dip and sit around in the dark having a chat. At one point I’d even started a Facebook group but as new members got wind, a few people took the group in a direction that I wasn’t fussed about so I handed over administration and walked away. None of my friends have been keeping up with it either.

Maybe it’s time to reinstate the group but just keep it with friends and the appropriate guest. It was a great way to unwind after a long day at work on a beautiful night.
