Home Again!!

The work is done - sorta - and it's time to go home! I wanted to say something deep and meaningful in today's message and then I ran across the most recent posting from the blog Journal of a Searching Soul whose author says it all! I trust Ms. Searching Soul does not mind my copying a portion of her recent post below:

"I must admit that my work has taken its toll on my blog. It's not that I ran out of thoughts to post. It's because I am too tired to process everything. This pressure-packed, fast-paced career serves stress for breakfast, deadlines for lunch, "more things to do" for dinner and anxiety for dessert. Of course, this is an exaggerated description of my corporate life. I am just making an outrageous excuse for not posting regularly.My blog is my refuge: it gives me back my sanity. I need to keep updating it."

And perhaps Searching Soul's most meaningful quote of all (as it relates to yours truly!):

"My work is my way of life. Travel is very much a part of it and I love it."

Thanks to Searching Soul for your recent comments. It seems that my most recent postings have only met with a few comments. I wonder if my repeat visits to Kuwait have become a bit too, well, repetitious, for my followers??!! Well, take heart followers, I may have a new destination up and coming next month so stay tuned - - - - a new continent may be in my not-too-distant travel future!

PS: Welcome to first time visitor: Ms. Sarah Alia Shahrim! Thanks for your support and all the best in your blogging. I only wish I could read your blogs in Malay!

One parting thought .... and this is purely a personal gripe! Is it only me or are the overhead bins in the 747 just too damn small? My carry-on bag is the largest legal carry-on around and I have to wiggle and jiggle the darn thing to get it to fit into the overhead bin. The best and by far the largest capacity overheads are in the Boeing 777!

Ms. Sarah Alia Shahrim:

Honestly I didn't know your blog is in Malay. I just assumed it was since your profile lists you as being in Malaysia and since many of the words are similar to Bahasa which I hear while I am traveling in Sumatra or Java.

Dear Chemist,

Always nice to be home...where will your new destination be? Must be South America...you've been to all the rest (except maybe Antarctica).

And, thanks for your comment on my ski trip...I don't get many comments either.
