Flowers don’t bend in the rainfall.

Through the corridors of sleep
Past the shadows dark and deep
My mind dances and leaps in confusion.
I don’t know what is real,
I can’t touch what I feel
And I hide behind the shield of my illusion.

So I’ll continue to continue to pretend
My life will never end,
And flowers never bend
With the rainfall.

The mirror on my wall
Casts an image dark and small
But I’m not sure at all it’s my reflection.
I am blinded by the light
Of God and truth and right
And I wander in the night without direction.

So I’ll continue to continue to pretend
My life will never end,
And flowers never bend
With the rainfall.

It’s no matter if you’re born
To play the King or pawn
For the line is thinly drawn ‘tween joy and sorrow,
So my fantasy
Becomes reality,
And I must be what I must be and face tomorrow.

So I’ll continue to continue to pretend
My life will never end,
And flowers never bend
With the rainfall

Reflecting on 2014 I am one lucky son of an “Angel”
Ups and downs for sure. But there is no doubt someone is looking after me. Never the less some awesome highlights. A Thriving business, Walks, met new friends, reconnected with old friends, have friends, family, got to spend time in my beloved Desert, Spitzkoppe & Kruger National park, went to rock concerts, International jet travel, air hostesses, played an awesome golf tournament at Sun City, planned a few more, still have my puppies with me, Swam in the Indian, Atlantic oceans & the Andaman sea, did some crazy shit….. etc….etc…..Rock on Baby…………

Unfortunately we lost a few people who meant a lot to me, especially while I was growing up (have I yet?). but hey your time has got to come……….What you gonna do?????????

Enough of 2014……………time to look to the future.
Ok stop laughing. I know I suck at it but hey………….what you gonna do 😉 😉 😉 😉

I am so excited for this year. Besides all the cool stuff I can do, I am gonna walk!!!!!!!!!!!!! Yeahhhbabyyeahhhh. Something that makes me real happy. As you well know i find my peace in Nature/desert/arms of Heidi Klum. However this time is going to be a big challenge but f@#k it. These boots are made for walking

There is nothing like a goal and change of year to get your ass kicked into action 😉 As you know I start the big walk from Swakop to Kunene on 15 May 2015 but I still need to finish from Karibib to Swakop before then. Just so I can “say” I walked through the whole of Namibia 😉
I plan to do that as soon as the rain’s come. It is just too bloody hot right now. It will be a great warm up for me and I can get my new walking boots “walked in” so hopefully there will be minimal blisters.
It should take me between 10-14 days. It seems long but I am back to being a fat bastard and to be honest I am in no hurry. Actually what I am going to do is to back up a bit and start at the farm Harmonie. Then walk the old Windhoek- Swakopmund road. It is sand & goes through the national park so I will avoid all the cars that go on the main road at lightning speed! Actually I think I will coinside it with a full moon again;-) Just me, my pup’s, desert, animals, camp fires and nature. Oh yes and the fly’s……….%$$#@#$%%%%##@@
Anyone want to walk???????????

It is really exciting as there are some family and friends that want to come do a few km’s with me in May/June/July. Especially in the beginning as logistics wise it will be much easier.
I even have a few friends that are going to meet me in the North to do the last +- 8 days walking. How cool will that be! Walking up to the Kunene River after 860km surrounded by friends. That would be the ultimate finale!!!!!!! Shit I better get off to the Gym………….

Ok back again……. So just a little reminder that you can support me & the giraffe conservation foundation just by contacting us.
We can guide you through the process. I have had a great response from friends donating to my needs for the walk but now time to raise a little for the Giraffes….. Come on stick your neck out!!!!!!!!!! lol cheesy 😉

As one of my staff said when I asked him how his day was going…………It is going great, I got out of bed this morning!!!!!!!!!!!Let make the best of 2015 & may the Schwartz be with you!

Talk soon…..Chadmanwalking out.
