Nude by Christmas

38 years old, 102kg. One of those numbers is about to change.

Always sit next to the crazy one.

Always sit next to the crazy one: a life rule I strongly encourage you all to observe.

It’s the crazy ones who change the world, create the art, shift our thinking. It’s the crazies who make our streets interesting, our buildings soar, our spirits sigh. It’s the nutters who can make you smile broadest, dream biggest and love boldest. Always, always sit next to the crazy ones.

This is a pic of the crazy I sat next to today. Beautiful, colourful, ratty looking thing that she is, we were the only two who had a conversation in our coffee shop this morning. There must have been twenty other people in there – but only two of us bothered to say hello.

She sat with a drawing pad and coloured pens and spent an hour scribbling – words, doodles, patterns – to fill the white space. It was the happiest thing.

And when she went to leave, she smiled, wished me a wonderful day, thanked me for the company, and disappeared into her Tuesday, ecstatic.

All because she sat next to the crazy one.
