I'm long overdue on returning to my first love, water sports. It's certainly a lot cooler here than in the great
Aussie state of Queensland. Still, being able to ride AND sail, from my doorstep, well, that's one of the fabled benefits of living in the Pacific NW. I feel optimistic today, as well as blessed.

Reminds me both of China and Nepal. I hope to visit Tibet in the next few years when I am in a happier and more stable period of my life. Until then, I'll quietly whisper "Namaste" as I pass by on my bike. It's a little meditation.

This speaks to me, in February, 2015. I recognize myself in this mess of vulnerability, longing, destruction and confusion.

Tongling is a city in China that still lacks a Starbucks, but it's not really a problem. Grading is mind-numbingly tedious on any continent, so the solution is to sit all afternoon listening to Chinese pop music over a 10 yuan cappuccino. Eventually the prices here will go up to the American prices charged in more Westernized cities like Shanghai. But right now, in January 2015, things haven't yet passed that tipping point.

All part of the experience.
