We arrive in this world crying and wailing into the arms of our mothers, but we leave quietly and ultimately alone. Death and even the prospect of it is a lonely affair. Even when there are others in the room you’re the only one that’s leaving with no-one to hold your hand and show you the away. You and I may wonder why, but the answer is not ours to know.

Take the Cake is very nearly real!  Actually this is a cafe near my home called Sherbert (on Whatley Crescent near Eighth Avenue in Maylands if you’re in Perth).  It’s owned/operated by two women who got the idea when they were in New York and cupcakes were the next big thing.
Vintage/retro furniture, all baked goods made on the premises, and great coffee.  The smeg fridge they’ve got there is icing on the cake, if you’ll excuse the pun.
I might have to take them a copy of the book someday.

Oh my God, what if you wake up some day, and you’re 65, or 75, and you never got your memoir or novel written; or you didn’t go swimming in warm pools and oceans all those years because your thighs were jiggly and you had a nice big comfortable tummy; or you were just so strung out on perfectionism and people-pleasing that you forgot to have a big juicy creative life, of imagination and radical silliness and staring off into space like when you were a kid? It’s going to break your heart. Don’t let this happen.

It’s never too late. This is something I decided recently, and plans are afoot.
