Los Angeles, CA
Sorry for the long absence. I have been in a funk for a while now. I think I am finally snapping out of it – finally…
A friend last night asked if I was tired of the “Asian Overachiever” thing and I suddenly felt liberated as if I have been finally correctly diagnosed. Just been feeling like things are in a bit of limbo – neither here nor there with nothing much making progress and a perceivable dent. But this friend (who has been living a leisurely life as an expat) called me on exactly what I am and the proceed to described one of his favorite place in Mexico where you just lay in a hammock in the shade, by the beach and do NOTHING!
It sounded so good, that even though I am starting to snap out of my funk – my un-achieving-ness – and feel that fighting spirit returning – I kinda wish that it wasn’t and I should learn how to relax and do NOTHING and be at peace with the present.
But…naturally I am headed for NYC in less than a week and then off to Southeast Asia for 3 weeks in June – adventure and markets awaits. No rest for the wicked!
