Today I want to get drunk. And I will. Depression setting in. Maybe not really a depression as much as a need to change my life. I am sick of working the same job for 11 years. I hate my boss and my co-worker. I just can’t do it anymore. More and more I think of moving to Alaska. Small…

Day whatever into COVID pandemic. I don’t care what day it is anymore. In fact, for the most of the day, I thought it was Thursday and the only reason I came back to reality is that I got a notification on my cell to pick up the wine which I knew I scheduled for Friday. Everything is blurred and…

April already. Unbelievable. We have been in quarantine for a month. Drinking a lot mostly out of boredom. The time to slow down will come soon. Working from home. Love it. Wish I can find a permanent remote position. Watching a lot of Britain Got Talent and Hell’s Kitchen. Walking 10 miles a day with my dog. Sometimes running 4…

Christmas vacation has arrived for me. I am off for two weeks. These weeks are shaping up to be rainy and grey. Not the best conditions to enjoy the great outdoors as I planned to do. It’s been a week and a half of rain already and I am so longing for a patch of blue sky however brief. Time…

Need to learn how to run in the rain. It will be raining for the rest of the winter so there you go. I have been sacking on running because I really hate running at work and today I want to leave work early so I can urban hike with my pooch. Work is slow and I have to get…

Yesterday I have connected with an old friend from Alaska on Facebook (of all places). The friend was surprised that I have left Alaska for Oregon and asked what it is I am doing here. That made me think. What exactly am I doing in Oregon? I could tell him about my job but really is this the right answer?…

Set up my art-making space in my living room. It sure made an already smallish space look even smaller. But it is cozy. I moved a plant that was separating the couch and my favorite IKEA chair (which is super comfy and affordable) next to the balcony window and it made a huge difference as far as feng-shui goes and…

What is it that makes life past flooding in at the most unexpected moments? I have a lot of it recently. I cuddled in my bed surrounded by a comfy comforter and all of the sudden I found myself in a small cabin in the middle of nowhere in Alaska wrapped in the similar comforter in the arms of a past…

Things I see when I am running: 1. The asphalt with with intricate patterns of dry leaves stuck to it and interlaced with patterns of somebody else’s footprints.  I always wonder how many miles they ran before me. 2. Chicken bones. They are everywhere as if the inhabitants of Tanasbourne all walking around with the drumsticks and discard the thigh…
