lazy day today. went by quickly. worked on the computer for hours answering emails, setting up web pages. it rained a few times today, which cooled the air off quite a bit, and cleared the dust and haze from the sky which made for a nice sunset cloudview:
a few people have asked again why i'm not living here in thailand. the short answer is of course, i have a family to support, and it's not easy for me here, as i don't speak the language, and most of the skills i have don't translate to well paying jobs here. english teachers make enough to support a family. as much as i complain about the states, i don't dislike america - i just like thailand more. if i could understand more about the government and things here, i'd probably complain about here also. americans - of which i am one and will always be one - are great complainers. i try to keep it to a low level tho, as generally my outlook on life is positive, no matter where or what i'm doing. so while i'm here i enjoy it immensely. when i'm in the states, well, it is familiar, and i can work there - which supports the family. but believe, as soon as i can figure out something that will enable me to live here permantly, here is where i'll be. tok has no interest in living in the states. she would like to meet my family, and see some of the country, but not to live there. i'm sure she would hate the food. (i do)
i found an interesting observation about thailand in one of the blogs i follow:
the rest of the day was lax. made a new cable for my guitar amp and played guitar, ate dinner and maybe we'll watch a movie.
gorgeous the life!
