Bangkok

Step Away From Your Computer!

Imagination is fine, but it needs fuel to survive, to grow–to really set it on fire.  What is that fuel? Life–the big LIFE–yes, really experiencing it. And to do that, sometimes you’ve just got to Step Away From Your Computer.

Whether it’s a visit to your local coffee shop to catch up on world news via some of your not so always neutral minded chums. Or, whether you hop on a plane and travel half way around the world to visit a temple or two, and then find yourself lost in the back alleys of a foreign city. Think of it this way…a fairy is only a plain old Disney fairy until you jump on a train, travel down to the city and start imagining what that same fairy would be like living among skyscrapers and taxis.

Anyway, as I enter what I consider the second part of my novel, I’ve been lucky to do just that–hop on a plane and end up half way around the world in Thailand. While I won’t be spending much time writing, there will be plenty of adventures and lots of living refueling going on.  Below are some pictures from Day 2 in Bangkok.

    Sometimes it’s more important to take a moment away from writing and experience the adventure. Last year, I spent six weeks in the UK and during that time, I was completely unplugged except for a few minutes every few days to check my email. Prior to the trip, I dreaded it. However, I’m going to Europe again this summer and I’m looking forward to stepping away from my computer/ placing a hold on blogging and soaking up life! Enjoy!

      Thanks, Karen. Oh, it is so hard to unplug. Especially when you have children back home and older, ailing parents. The children are really no longer children, so I don’t worry about them as much… but it was tough to leave the parents. Anyway, except for a quick blog here or there, I’m just trying to soak everything in. Enjoy your summer in Europe. 🙂

    There is nothing like a change of scene for inspiration and oh boy, what a great place to find yours in Thailand! Have a wonderful trip Lorijo, soak up the culture and I look forward to hearing more about your adventure.

      Thanks, Lottie. My adventures seem tame in comparison to yours…but I’ll do my darndest to have fun. We leave for Phuket tomorrow. I can’t wait. Bangkok is great, but in many ways it’s just another big city. What really sets it apart are the Thai people. They’re so nice.

    To make the platform or the island on which the building can be constructed, non permanent tube files and
    sheet recordsdata have been drilled into the ocean mattress to assist numerous
    boundary rocks, which were deposited afterward both the perimeters
    of sheet piles.
