Onward ho

My bags are packed. Am I ready to go? Not as wholeheartedly as I used to be, I think it's a part of the aging process, the reluctance to move again, create a new home in a new place, make new friends. Over three years ago, I moved to a new house, but that wasn't too far from where I used to live. This time around, I've packed boxes up, sorted through the accumulated junk of three years (how did I manage to surround myself with all this stuff???), and put my pets up with my folks. I do feel bad for my mom, since I can see with new eyes how much all her kids (myself included) have dumped on her everytime we move house or country. I do hope I won't take too long to gather all my detritus from her cabinets and dispose of them properly.

The only thing on my Hope For list is a working, clean Western style bathroom wherever I end up. I don't have high expectations, knowing what I know... but I'm a positive thinker.

Aw Mila...this might sound weird, but I wish I had gotten to know you better and spent more time with you before your departure. There were few and far between, but I did enjoy those few times hanging out with you :)

Here's to a western style toilet for you!

Felipe and I will miss you!!! :-(

Okay, I shall not look back; instead, I'll look forward to what we'll do when (yes, "WHEN") you return. And I think #1 will have to be what we said we'd do more of a year ago, and haven't since: dive! :-D

We are missing you already over here M! Crossing all finger and toes for your western toilet!

Hi bel, wish there had been more time to see you before I left. Hopefully you manage to travel to China one day while I'm here.

Katrina and Joey, I'm pretty sure I'll be home in a few months, but only to go through another visa processing spree. Won't be enough time to dive, but we'll eat!

Where are you going, for what, and for how long?
