|Drift restaurant drifting off down the Brisbane River.|
I love these books, because it encourages me to get out of my old eating ruts and try someplace new, that I normally wouldn't go to if it was left up to me.
I've discovered lots of interesting places to eat around Brisbane from thumbing through this book, like in this post here -
Flow Like Poe?
But unfortunately I never got to eat at Drift even though I had a good window of opportunity before this restaurant got destroyed by the Brisbane Floods of 11 January, 2011.

Reminds me of the lyrics in the Alan Parsons Project song Time (above) and how time is like a river flowing to the sea.

Being in-between jobs and reevaluating my life has made me realize just how important my time is and just how quickly it's floating by.
This book I'm reading at the moment, Your Money Or Your Life is spelling it out to me in no uncertain terms.
Whilst it can be very hard emotional reading (I wouldn't recommend reading this book if you were contemplating suicide), I think it is necessary reading for someone like me who feels like they have just woken up to their financial/working life.

O, and it didn't escape my notice that flooding began to affect low-lying areas of Brisbane on the morning of 11 January 2011. (11/1/11).
Doing some more de-cluttering in my room, I came across an old "House and Garden" magazine from 2009 that I haven't even opened yet.
Flicking through it though I came across an add for a New Zealand wine called Drift.
I have never heard of the brand before today.
I wonder if there is a message in there for me?
