And I

And I suppose as always I've come here to complain - to peer with giant eyes at all the ways my life is not 'more'.

I think that this feeling has a cause - it's crept up on me slowly, but it's been building for a while. There is no way to pinpoint its origin though, as so many variables were altered at the same time.

I've stopped meditating. My writing is going badly. There is less newness about my current experience. Work is busy. I'm not socialising much. I'm not doing much of anything outside of work. I'm feeling disconnected from my friends. I'm brooding over the mental list of things I have to do instead of actually getting them done.

I believe that one of these may be the root cause of all the others. But which one...........?

I keep meaning to update this.....but it's like when you get a letter from someone and you intend to reply when you have the proper time to do it justice, and then you put it off for so long that it feels worse to reply at all and acknowledge the delay than to just ignore the whole situation, even though you feel awful for doing so.

But then the Beautiful Girl has started a new blog, and it's so good to see her writing again, and to feel the closeness of her through that. So I'm going to give this a go, and see what I want to get out of it.

I don't want to get too involved with this, because I'm being so productive with my fiction writing. But I just looked back through my old posts and loved being able to see my past so clearly. I don't want to miss out on that for this time in my life.

Just to start with, here's a random selection of recent photos:

 Starting my travels in Hong Kong
 Malaysia with my little brother
 Batik class in Malaysia
 Scary bat cave that I crawled through in Malaysia
 Lovely street art in Malaysia
Back in Hong Kong

Now I'm here in Hong Kong for at least a year. Hopefully I'll be posting more about my life here.
