I haven’t been writing for a long time. My latest entry was six months ago in June! That’s how crazy things can go when we get side-tracked by life.
Another reason I stopped was also because the blog that I was building got wiped out. My hosting expired. I didn’t renew it and I forgot to back up the site. So the whole site was gone. In a way, I know to start things over is not necessarily a bad thing and I’m glad that I type all my entries on Google Doc. So not all was lost. But it definitely broke my writing flow.
At the same time, my head just wasn’t at the right place to write. I was back on Koh Phangan and felt like the island overtook me.
Anyhow, I am feeling so amazing at the moment typing away on my computer, sitting in my friend Vera’s living room in Munich, Germany. I flew here a few days ago from Spain to spend the winter with her. It’s also my first time in Germany! I haven’t gone out much other than doing groceries. After spending almost two months on the road in Spain and Portugal with Avner, I feel like some self-quarantine time is necessary. I’ve got my workspace set up at Vera’s. I have been cooking every day and cleaning her house like an Asian maid.
There’s a sense of contentment and ease I am feeling. Not needing much stimulation but being happy with the simplest things. When external stimulation is at the minimum, I finally get to be in touch with my inner self more. Hence, it got me on my Google Doc again typing and journaling.
