I am beginning an adventure that will keep me from posting for A time, but expect to post from SEA before too long. Perhaps I'll have something worthwhile to say about Buddhism.
On the 6th of February I expect to land in Bangkok tired and jet-lagged. I'll arrive without a visa. That's a bit like me showing up on your front porch unannounced and expecting to stay. Still, I have high hopes that the Thais will let me stay awhile. Without leaving BKK I intend to get a flight to Chiang Rai and begin to get comfortable there.

Sold my nice little Suzuki and expect to get a rental car today. This JT house is just about empty of furniture and belongings. I've sold and give away much, but will still leave a lot in storage. I'll probably put this computer there tomorrow.
I don't see much beautiful adventure shinning through that which I have just written. Could I have begun to doubt my capacity for adventure? Whatever my writing or my capacity, I feel satisfied and energized. I feel pleasant anticipation know how likely it is that I will soon be surrounded by the novelty and beauty of Thailand and the rest of SEA.
The prospect of shopping for used first grade(or kindergarten) textbooks with which to begin to learn to read and write Thai pleases me.
I wish you pleasure, energy, and satisfaction. I also wish you health, love, money, and time to enjoy them.
