there's no place like home...

Home is sweet indeed... and my heart is well and truly here too.
Had a wonderful reunion with the gorgeous Mikey who picked me up at dublin airport.

We had been in touch a lot during my month away and even managed to have several long phonecalls too [including the now famous i'm bored... i'm coming home early phonecall at the end of week 3]

Thankfully, M encouraged me to go to the beach in Phuket for the last week - although it must have broken his heart not to be going to his beloved Thailand himself too.

i had a wonderful week around the Patong Beach scene in Phuket but most of all i loved swimming every day

i even managed to take a speedboat day-trip around the islands... including Maya Beach where they made that movie The Beach with Leonardo Di Caprio
Here's a pic of me [above] emerging from the sea like Ursula Andres in that early James Bond movie, or is it more like the Creature from the Blue Lagoon ?

Coming home involved 4 flights!

So i flew from phuket to bangkok
stayed overnight at Babylon and had a nice night out on the scene [went to DJ Station]

next day, flew to Delhi [stayed at the YMCA... dont bother!]
following morning, took a hair-raising taxi ride,
on the way to the airport, around some of Delhi [Connaught Place etc... dont bother!... fun driving though]

Then Delhi - London - Dublin... Phew!

Now i am well and truly home...

i have resumed running my business NUA which really just amounts to my Bed and Breakfast
and many many thanks to M for running things so smoothly and successfully while i was away!

as well as that i'm back to dabbling in the creative arts
running Buddhist Network Ireland

and i will, of course, continue to study and practise some meditation at RIGPA

i enjoyed writing this blog very much and i hope you enjoyed reading it!

i intend to continue to use it from time to time as a kind of diary and notebook - a place where i can simply rant and rave... share my thoughts and neurosis... show off... confess... create...

a blog is just that kind of space where you can express all manner of serious stuff alongside rubbish and tedium - everything that makes up a person

As such, not all of it will be edifying or interesting - Buddhism and Travel are only part of a much broader picture...
Sexuality, the Creative Arts, Politics, Fun [god forbid!]... will also feature here

May Non-Violent World Revolution cause Peace, Compassion and Wisdom to overflow like a great river bursting its banks!
