In light of the days events, writing about A Perfect Moment seems callous and is quite hard. The media and even the people around me are all talking about war and death. Everyone is waiting for the Trump speech in the morning. Everyone is putting forward their theories and ideas. I would find it surprising if anyone wanted to talk about my new computer, a chat with a friend about a possible cycling vacation to somewhere I had never even considered before, or some nonsense about sleeping late and drinking way too much coffee in the morning.
Or maybe we need an antidote to all the depressing news around us. Maybe, I should just ramble on and if you are not interested right now, I would invite you to come back later. If you would like to take your eyes and minds off of what everyone tells you is war, keep reading.
I bought a new computer recently, but hadn’t turned it on. I love the idea of new technology, but I just worried that all the changes would be overwhelming. I like change and can adapt to it well, but I don’t always initiate it well. In the case of a new computer, I know I’ve got to import or transfer documents and programs and lots of stuff. If it were like my phone, I could do it in a flash. Sadly, that is not the case.
The main thing is it is now on and ready to use when I am ready to use it.
New Vacation Idea
A friend who I had met on a cycling trip in Vietnam and met again on a cycling trip of Thailand, Cambodia, and Vietnam suggested we meet up for another trip at the end of the year. We found a date we both liked and checked out some trips. Having explored Asia together, more trips there seemed a bit superfluous–though I still want to get to Laos and Sri Lanka. Also, since I am on my way to Colombia in the near future, and I feel like I just got back from Costa Rica, both Central and South America were a bit lower down on the ranking. So, it seems like we might be going to South Africa. I really had not even had that on the radar, but one look at some of the photos completely changed that.
Catching up on sleep seems wise. It leads to late nights. This leads to writing blogs late at night as well. I suppose that could be considered a win-win situation….until the next morning when I am on the bus and wishing I were still in bed.
