Happy Loi Krathong!

People gathered by the river in Surat Thani on the night of the full moon.... 10 November 2011, to place in the water, a small lotus shaped boat made out of banana leaves... adorned with a candle, incense, flowers and maybe even a coin.  Before sending the boat out into the river, prayers were offered and wishes were made.

It is believed the festival began as a way of showing respect of the water gods.

Eye see you.....

Haven't seen you in a while. 
Where have you been?

Where is My "Great American Novel...?" It's not forthcoming and that's maddening!

What's happening to me.....? I think I've turned into some kind of monster! I've never seen this in me before. 
All I want to do is write........ The Great American Novel..... well if not the greatest novel......, at least a short little whimsical poem!  But no luck!  Writer's block has become an out of control monster!

Listen Dude...and hold your horses with all that monster crap! ............... are retired!  Remember?

You don't have to DO anything! 

When you retired in May 2010,  you were handed the golden opportunity to become a human being rather than a human doing.

Stop, relax and allow yourself to just....... be.
