Visually Minded


Although I've always got a lot of words bouncing around in my head, I can't always say that they make that much sense.

So, in an effort to compile some information that might be a bit less scrambled, here is a snapshot (ha ha, i'm TOO funny) I've what we've been up to over the past couple of weeks.

First, there was my birthday




which included tacos


some wishes
a pinyata


and many many MANY songs sung by me



and others, when I finaly gave the mic away.







And then there was my ACTUAL birthday, which I shared with Buddha, and also meant, I got the day off.




Happy Birthday to us, big guy.

Then, there was a trip to Pohang to see some cute kids at an orphanage my friend K used to work at which included some playing



some measuring - of the length of noses that is..


and some hugs



and then an ice hockey game..








in which two foreigner friends were playing!




It included a bit of drama, when a player stormed off the ice, because he lost his glove. More likely, it was because the G-town team was KICKING THEIR ASS with the foriegn contribution and they were embarrassed to be losing.


Boo hoo, toys outta the crib, give me a lollipop.

There was some more frivolity - as there always is.







And a good time was had by all.
Been busy - yes.
Been enjoying it? Absolutely.
Next post: more tacos, a patio bar and a football tourney on the beach.

I'm baaaack!

Hard to believe that last entry was almost three years ago!

Many moons ago, I set this blog up to chronicle our journeys. Once we were grounded a bit more, it kind of lost its way. I spent some time working on my writing offline, taking on different projects and working full time as a technical writer. It was difficult to keep this blog up. Not for any real reason I can articulate. Just had my words redirected to other avenues for awhile.
But, I'm pleased to say, after over a decade away, we are back in the UK, living and re-experiencing a place we enjoyed in the mid-2000s.
Social media has certainly changed the way we look at blogs. I'm excited to navigate this new world, explore just what people post, what people read. What's better on one of the many new platforms and what's still appropriate for good old fashioned blogosphere.
For now, here's a peek at where we're staying -- in a pretty little village just outside of Oxford. A temporary home for now but suc…

Focus

My regular journaling has significantly improved my mood.

I've been taking some time, twice a week, to polish existing content as well as develop my floating ideas into a more concrete outline.

I've felt this focus for the last 6 weeks that I can't really describe properly. It's as though I've shifted my thinking totally. Writing is my craft. It's what I do, who I am, how I exist. It's like my mojo.

So, I guess, I've gotten my mojo back. My focus, my purpose, my essence.

And it feels good. It feels right. And I am almost understanding more now why the best writing of the best writers happens when they are older, more polished, more experienced, more rough around the edges.

When all the youthful spark has been extinguished and what's left, is the determined embers, that will not go softly, that will not die out. That will continue, fervently glowing, creating warmth and not just drawing attention from its flicker, but pulling people in by it's so…

Room with a view

We've been in our new home for 10 weeks nos and it's feeling more like home than ever.Every day, I sit down at my desk to the most inspiring view.A collection of stories is building. This space makes it easy to gather my thoughts.I've been consumed with a few work projects and am looking forward to collecting my thoughts soon.Writers club is still going ... I was on a bit of a hiatus but hope to get into my routine for fall. For now, boat gazing is helping.
