green reconciliation


My Greenliness has been challenged yet again. Maybe its dying some kind of death? Im challenged. I made a trip. No real need besides the one I chose to justify; just pure R&R. Girlfriends from various States meeting up for a weekend of togetherness; our annual girly Melbourne weekend. Kids and partners left behind. Massages and cocktals, highbrow dinner and bloated boardwalk walking. Pillows, pyjamas, movies and pizza and whisky and wine and yes... some shopping to be had.

652 kilometres- jet fuelled
New clothes from fancy shops, well fancier than usual...
No bottled water, all dishes got washed...
Our hotel loungeroom view - sinful on all levels! Lit up like a Christmas tree, burning tonnes of fossil fuel, but god it looked fantastic. We all spent time alone with it. Something about a city at night...
Jeez it was good!

Fantastic! I love Melbourne and that's exactly what we do when we need a bit of R&R. You can go back home now refreshed and revitalised and continue with being good.

You're still streets ahead of the majority of the population.

Sounds like a fabbo weekend.

And about the greenness? I bet on balance you're still well in the black. That plane would have flown even if you weren't on it, so you have diluted the fuel usage. The lights of the city would have been viewed by one less person.

Its all good.
