I must be mad, sitting here typing at 2:28 am. My mind was too active and I couldn’t sleep.
It was great to get back home yesterday. I love home, the place where I can relax best. I also love going away sometimes but coming home is always best.
I am sorry that I haven’t been able to comment so much on WordPress and facebook. Time is so difficult to get sometimes and this last week has been crazy for me. These days I tend to comment to friends who also bother to read my blogs and make comments. That’s fair. The big problem in WordPress is that we must have a WordPress ID to be able to make comments. And most friends don’t have a WordPress ID.
What can be better than getting emails from family and friends ? I love getting them and the pictures of Flocky which Russ sends me sometimes from Kathmandu. Wow the big news for our family last week was that Moti will go on a Korean sponsored healthcare course to South Korea. That probably doesn’t sound like any big deal for many people but it sure is something big for a healthcare worker from a high Himalayan village. I wish I could be in Nepal to go with Moti to Kathmandu Airport to see her on her way to Incheon. I am so excited for her.
Last week I has messages from Keiji in Germany, my cousin Frank and an old Thai friend called Jiem. I have answered everybody and hoping to hear back soon. I will never stop appreciating the magic of the internet and instant communication with anybody around the world.
One of my highlights of last week was that Bournemouth drew 1-1 with Manchester United. I was expecting Man Utd to wipe the floor with Bournemouth but it didn’t happen. Bournemouth is where I have my UK home so it’s natural that I should support their football team.
Yesterday I spent some time after getting back, thinking of friendships old and new. Friends come and friends go but the real ones are there forever. In my thinking nothing is worse than having a fake fair weather friend. Maybe we’ve all had them. They never stop thinking about themselves. They disappear as quickly as they arrived and of course after gaining as much advantage and help as they can. I have always taken friendship very seriously. But in general I’ve had many real and fantastic friendships in my life and I have many friendships which go back thirty, forty years and more. I love such friendships that are not based only on money, advantages, university enrolments and visas.
Well now it’s 2:43 am already and time to sleep. Today will be a busy day and I have much to do and to think about.
