Because everything, including me, is changing all the time, I will never encounter the things I saw today on this walk the same way again, ever.
|The Brisbane River from the Kangaroo Point cliffs|
|I think this pigeon could have a message to give me ;-)|
"You can never step into the same river twice", the same goes for walking along a river, or anything you are going to do today for that matter.
|Whatever happened here, accident or otherwise, must have been tragic|
|Climbers on the other side of that sign pictured above this photo|
Just be careful of those "Mother-in-law tongue" plants on the other side of the wall if you are a married man...or ex-married man, because it you get your ears too close they could burn. ;-)
|Be careful of those sharp "mother-in-law tongues" poking over the fence;-)|
To get down to the river-walk from the cliffs you have to go down the wheelchair ramp from hell, or use the stairs over near the coffee shop.
|Wheelchair ramp from hell from the cliffs down to the river-walk and back up, maybe?-)|
|The stairway to heaven...or from hell, like the wheelchair ramp?-)|
|With all these stairs to climb you'll be dead fit...or both, by the end of it|
|The 'Wheel of Life'?|
The Circle of Lives?
The cliffs are popular with climbers, as you can see from the photo above with all the pegs hammered into the wall.

|Flood markers from two floods on the old Naval Stores along the river-walk|
And especially today when the search and rescue guys have their van parked along the river-walk, while they do some rope work on the cliff face.
It's almost like sitting in a zen garden hearing the bamboo creaking in the wind as you sit down on the seat facing the river watching it flow past.
|Looking across the river to the Brisbane CBD|
|A scrub turkey crosses my path while on the walk. A sign perhaps?-)|
It was hanging around this piece of obscure art above.
The funny thing about spotting the bush turkey on my walk was I had just written a post about Liam Pieper fearing this bird in Nimbin in this post of mine -
The Shadow Side and True Colours of Liam Pieper?
But I like bush turkeys and since I was walking this walk in gratitude and wonder, maybe it was appropriate that our paths would cross on this walk ;-)
|The ibis hanging around my car in the backstreets of Hawthorne|
'Blood Father' at a cinema not far from the river-walk..that's if you drive, not walk to the cinema.
Life is Like a Movie?
|Seat F8? Fate?|
|Don't pay the ferryman until he gets you to the other side?-)|
|These are about the only fish I ever caught fishing in this river|
It would be great having an apartment in this building as the river-walk is virtually in your backyard.
Not to mention all of the great pubs and theatres within walking and staggering range of this building.
But I couldn't even afford to live in the place next door to this building pictured above with my income stream...or should I say dried up creek?-)
But I guess I can dream about a life in a riverside apartment in the clouds.
I'm just grateful that I don't have a room in the building pictured above, because that is a cancer hospital.
When I saw this sculpture above I realised that it must be springtime and also time to head back to my car and head to the cinema to catch Mel's movie.
|That's the roof with the pattern I use for my avatar for this blog|
Me, in the Centre
I haven't been under that roof again since the day I took that photo back in 2011.
|Me in the centre, looking up at the roof|
Ah, memories...but that rocket looking sculpture wasn't there back in 2011, I think.
After that walk it was good to get a nice cold beer at the cinema and wait for the curtain to fall and start the movie rolling...or spinning...or whatever movies do these days.
In Australia the cinema screen curtain falls from top to bottom, unlike in the northern hemisphere where the curtain goes from bottom to top ;-)
Well, it did in this Australian cinema anyway.
I will never see a river, or day like that again, as long as I live.
