Monday Mural

Last Monday I was massaged by my usual masseur. I always make sure he massages me, not by someone else. He has stopped using hot rocks, which I am paying for and he no longer massages my legs, neither of which I mind. He mostly focuses on my back, including glutes, arms and neck. My god, he was just amazing last Monday. Me who doesn't believe in tipping, tipped him $10 instead of the usual $5.

The feel good endorphins were very well released, but I also felt like a wrung out rag, kind of like you feel after a long session of really good sex, if you can remember that. I have a vague memory. I usually catch the train to town for coffee afterwards but I needed some recovery time, so I caught a train in the opposite direction to Sandringham. It is a nice and short train trip, running along the edge of Port Phillip Bay at times.

I couldn't visualise Sandringham where the train terminates but once off the train, I realised only about a year ago we were here in the car looking for a supermarket. R saw his doctor in the street shopping for something. We had lunch in a really nice, large and busy cafe. Now where was it? Ah, I am standing right in front of it and it is closed and undergoing renovations. I gazed northwards looking for a cafe with outside seating and then south and I went to one south. Oh wow when I looked south. You may not like the vicious bird of prey but what a stunning mural!

  1. That is one hell of a mural and would have made my day.
    I am iffy about massages. I have had more bad (and sometimes painful) ones than feel good ones. So I have stopped trying.

  3. I think I am good tipper or lease fair. That bird looks like it ready to scoop up someone.

  4. That's an amazing mural.

    I've never had a massage. It hurts in many places on my body to be touched; sometimes I even hurt myself if I scratch an itch with any pressure. I think a massage might kill me.

  5. Yes, that's nicely painted; a good job. As for massages, I've never had one, the idea doesn't appeal at all.

  10. I only had one massage in my life and it was the last. She was mean to me, insulting and I'll never have another. I like the mural, in that kind of a mood, would like to peck apart something myself.

  12. Fabulous mural Andrew. I usually only get a massage when I get back pain, from a fabulous physiotherapist.
