I am glad I get this opportunity to stay three nights on a little cottage snuggling over the cliff overlooking the bay at Koh Tao, or Tao island. It feels different to go to vacation without Tone and Iris but in a good way. Plenty of time to get to know the waves, the sands, the bays, the corals, the fishes, the crabs, the sea egrets, the boats, the fishing men, the tourists, the piers, the silver glow sunrise, the warm glow of the moon, yoga by the beach, lying on the beach and letting the waves splashes my face like I have no way to stand against its relentless powerful rythm, pondering question of my life to myself, and starting writing a novel. I used to write a few essays and poems to kid magazine when I was in school. It is a pity to let those small fun things gone in the wind. May be it will take me ten years to finish this novel but I am willing to go for it this time. Enjoy my zen and the splashes !!!
