Taipei Musings – A Little of Everything

Is the honeymoon over?! At times. The pink glasses have come off, and some of the harsher realities have entered the space… Here’s a little rant… I’m tired. Highly aware of the restrictions within and without. I’m tired of “the Covid thing” that is putting the brakes on life’s expression, even here. In Taipei, I’veContinue reading “Taipei Musings – A Little of Everything”

Day 12: Hmmmmmm…

Quarantine Diary 5:38AM. Today + two = going for a walk outside! Experiencing life at street level while stretching my legs! Looking up at buildings, not down. Looking around corners, down alleys. And maybe finally tasting the soup-man’s cooking? He is popular! Most evenings he rolls up his cart, sets up shop in front ofContinue reading “Day 12: Hmmmmmm…”

Day 7: Half-way!

Quarantine Diary: 4:30 AM…don’t seem to need much sleep these days. I like the quiet and slow beginnings to the day. First light, first bird songs, street sweeping (with the kind of broom I’d like for Halloween), sweeping up cups, cigarette butts, wrappers, this and that. One one those tasks that repeats itself endlessly, likeContinue reading “Day 7: Half-way!”

Day 6: A l m o s t . . .

Quarantine Diary A l m o s t… half-way! Yeay! So far, so good… the body is starting to feel a bit “couchpotato-ish” and, oh dear, my tan is starting to fade 😉 but other than that, life in the den is pretty good. I can remember -mostly as a kid- getting completely absorbed byContinue reading “Day 6: A l m o s t . . .”

Day 5: Play, rest, be silly

Quarantine Diary 6 AM. It’s raining. As it often does. Not for long though. The weather here changes by the minute sometimes. Taiwan’s people joke about their climate. Weather is iffy and forecasts are just for reference… there is always good weather in Taiwan, but not necessarily where you are at the moment. Ha! TheContinue reading “Day 5: Play, rest, be silly”

Day 4: Happy Thanksgiving ye all!

Quarantine Diary: 6:50AM. Fell asleep at 9PM, wide awake at midnight. Cruising Facebook looking at Taipei room ads until it’s time to join a zoom call with Gangaji at 2AM, during which I fall asleep 🙂 LOL! Her soothing voice does the trick. I find that Eckhart, Osho, and Gangaji rank high on the lullingContinue reading “Day 4: Happy Thanksgiving ye all!”
