The sun WILL come out!
We have had some really nasty cold weather here in Thailand. First we had a couple of days of rain (which we really needed). It was a very cold rain which is unusual all by itself. I had to go out to the post office and my Thai friend took me on his motorcycle. We had to stop and get gloves as the air on our hands was like knives. But I wanted to get the letter sent so that I could pay off a tax debt (and then I discovered that the postage had more than doubled since a month ago! Bad trip!)
The rain drove the temperatures down and then we had a couple more days with no sun so the temp got down to 12 degrees celsius (54 fahrenheit). That may not sound so bad, but Thai houses are not prepared for that kind of weather. Ours has no heater and the kitchen is made so that there iare a lot of places for the air to circulate from inside to outside. We were sleeping with pants, sweatshirts and jackets on.
But finally today the sun burst through the clouds and let me tell you it was a welcome sight. Probably by tomorrow we will be back to feeling like we live in the tropics.
All of this, plus the recent death of my 19 year old cat have take a toll on my motivation for the past two days and my site health is sinking fast. So I've got to get back to publishing some more posts. I need to be like the sun and start shining forth! Mightily!
One bright spot in all of this is that I have decided to move back to Bangkok where I lived for 4 years. I've already talked with friends there and I've submitted proposals for 3 plays that I'm interested in directing for the Bangkok Community Theatre. I did a lot of work with them in the past and look forward to doing some great stuff with them again. As you can imagine the process of making three different proposals has taken a lot of time. But now that's done and I can get back to building up my business here at WA.
So thank you all for inspiring me to 'git er done' and for the sun, who always shines, even when it's up above the clouds where we don't see it.
