The Next Few Months… (originally posted 10/25/06)

Life of Pi - Yann MartelAll living things contain a measure of madness that moves them in strange, sometimes inexplicable ways. Without it no species would survive. -Yann Martel “Life of Pi”

Back in Welly for the moment and moving on soon.
Wow it has been a long, long time since I have actually wrote anything up on this. It makes me feel so lazy when I look at this page…well calling it lazy is a bit harsh because I do sometimes update the header picture or very occasionally update with a video, but alas, I have realized I am just not a writer. I have tried to keep a daily journal where I would jot the tid bits down at the end of the day but it turns out to be a bit of jotting once every other month. And I’m always loosing the damn thing.

This sort of reminds me of when two old friends reunite after a long absence and begin to delve into each others lives once again…you and I are, at this moment, doing the same. It is just completely one sided and when everyone (if anyone) will read it, it will be not until the next day or week or month. But in a way, we are now being connected once again.

If you are not my parents or my brother or sister…you may not know a whole lot of what I have been up to this past year. Like I before mentioned, I am not a writer so it is hard for me to write what its like living in another country for a year of my life. Its hard to put down with clarity the strangeness, excitement, beauty, and unfamiliarity’s of this place. There will most likely never be a book published about my travels, only a hand full of pictures and a few tapes worth of video clips that express some of the places and people along the way, but in no way, shape or form will it capture the emotions, thoughts, and even growth of a person. I do feel that New Zealand has changed me. I don’t know if it would have been Journey are the widwife of thought - Alain de Bottonany different if I would have ventured to another place but I don’t care, I like what has happened here.
