Why DID the Chicken Cross the Road?

Back in 2010, the infamous Clovelly Road chicken crossed the road, and ultimately found itself lost. Silly, silly bird. But fear not, for the Clovelly road chicken was fortunate to met a kind human, who threw poster form, attempted to reunite bird with owner.

Fast forward to 2015, and I too am crossing the road. Many of them, from East to Inner West. Like the Clovelly Road chicken all those years ago, who threw caution to the wind, flew the coup so to speak…it’s time for change and taking chances.

This chick is packing up her Eastern Suburbs pad and moving on….Whilst unlike the Clovelly Road chicken, I have a destination, in so many ways our decision to cross the street is identical.

In road crossing, we are daring ourselves to seek out a better life. We are no longer content with routine, we are restless. But who is to say that road crossing will lead to the change we seek? Could be worse, could be better…. One things for sure….Life on the other side will be different and that is enough to warrant a move.

Chicken & Chick street crossing is brave & courageous yet scary & risky behaviour.

Yet I look to my feathered hero for inspiration, that I too may fall on good luck and fortune by making this bold move.

How will you know if I have made it?!

Over the coming weeks look on street post for signs that read ‘ FOUND – Young women happy & smiling in Inner West Terrace home’

    But till then, a tale from the Eastern Suburbs, 2015 about the infamous Clovelly Road Chicken and the lesson to be learnt from the bird that dared to walk the roads.
