This afternoon, I laid down on the grassy ground near the beach and look upward. The sight of tree leaves moving slowing and the endless blue sky seemed so foreign to me. How long has it been since I last do this? When was the last time I really take a break both in the body and the mind?
I am writing this post while staying at a beach resort in Lanta Island in the Southern Thailand, where I am staying until after New Year’s holidays. I have been spending the past month in the South as a visiting fellow. Staying away from regular environment and having more time on my hands really lent me some perspectives. I feel like the dust in my mind has somewhat settled down and I now see things more clearly. Somehow, all the things that had been troubling me for the past year seems rather trivial now. And even though I can see the storm gathering in the far horizon ahead of me in 2015, I know that I will be okay.
Well, I just want to wish you all, my readers and blogger friends, a very happy New Year.
I’ll certainly continue to write about anime, though the pacing may be slow due to tight academic commitment, which will thankfully come to an end this June.
p.s. My blog turn 7 years old on the past November 4. Let’s drink to that as well!
