As the world continues to literally go down in flames, I'm sitting here thinking about how nice it would be to check out, pay the bills, get rid of all the "baggage" and just go on my merry way.... Go back to Thailand, or maybe go somewhere new to me, like Central America. Down-size, cut … Continue reading I want “simple”. Simple makes happy. I want someone who sees that too. Are you out there?
So, I came back to Seattle today, after being in Sweden for a little over three weeks. And it's not the first time, far from it, that I've been away for 2 or 3 weeks. And normally I get all strung up and stressed out when I'm about to go back. I start fretting and … Continue reading The strangest experience ever.
It's interesting, isn't it, that since I found "happiness" I don't write anymore? Or at least I haven't written in a while.

It's been a really good week. I mean really good. I feel more grounded and balanced than I have in a long time. Maybe more so than ever.

Things that make me happy. … Continue reading How the four noble truths have helped me change my life…
Last weekend as I started gearing up for re-entry into normal life here in the US, I tried to think about and focus on not repeating past mistakes.
