Contemplating

This has nothing to do with cycling. Well, mostly.

Somedays I feel like my whole life is on the road. I pause longer and longer every time someone asks me where I'm from. Where I call home gets a smile before anything else. What a hard question. I start by saying where I've lived and then saying where I go back for Christmas to, though I've lived none of those places. Or I say where I would go if everything fell apart. But then that could be back in the states or in one of the tiny places in China where you can stay for months for nearly free in exchange for a little work. Places like XingPing, above.

...yeah, I know, I never finished blogging China. It's on the list of things to do. Right after buying my plane ticket to Argentina. I'm spending a lot of time these days planning the next leap. It's going to be big. Once again, it will change my life.

I miss the days when I had time and energy to write and write. It's around the corner again, but not often these days.

These days are so busy. So busy that I had 170km bike ride (my 2nd century!!) and a till 2am birthday party on the same day--yesterday, and still managed to study a few hours this morning with a friend. Now I'm tired though and feeling reflective. I've been in Japan a long time and somedays it feels more like home than anywhere else. Sometimes I feel like staying would be the easiest road. But I don't take that road usually do I? I believe that's a good thing but my belief may be flawed.

My work days are a lot like this

I did a photo experiment with the munchkins. I let them play with my old point and shoot camera and thought art may come of it. Perhaps unsurprisingly, kids under 6 didn't care so much about composition of photos but instead wanted to test the limits of the camera. How close can you hold it to the wall and still get light in the lens? Does it work up and down as well as the normal straight ahead? What happens if I touch the lens? Anyway, many very beautifully candid pictures came out of this experiment and I'm trying to remember how I made the slide show of pictures like I did after I came back from China. Anyone know how to do that on iPhoto?

There are too few weekends in a week, I feel. Soon though, everything will change again and I'm both excited and scared. There's so much to pack, so much to organize, so many deep breaths to take. There are so many adventures to have.

I look forward to the days when there is more time for writing poetry and understanding this crazy journey. I'll try and post more pictures soon. I'll try...

the adventures continue...

what version of iphoto do you have? in iPhoto 6, you just highlight the pictures you want to make into a slideshow (hold the apple key as you click to select multiple images) then click the little "slideshow" icon at the bottom of the screen.
