Musings upon the peculiarities of transit

Boats, buses, bicycles. Planes, trains, a pied. Motorbike, scooter, tuk tuk, song teaw. Taxi-Brousseau, minibus, coach, tro tro.

Transit: the much-blighted, much-glorified, always late, blissfully on time, cause of consternation, cause of fascination… It’s the necessary evil of travel–or the invitation for zen depending upon a myriad of mercurial factors including, temperature (which directly correlates to body odor), weariness, lack of sleep, legroom, the view, the ventilation, the company, the price, duration, inebriation, padding (usually lack there of), noise, vibrations, drivers skill, restroom availability, luggage security, hunger, thirst and sunlight.

This one time… In Borneo

This trip has immensely surpassed any expectations I had set for it. The youth cultural conference was too much fun and I think more an inspiration for me and my fellow speakers than even for many of the participants–at least it’s hard to imagine being any more inspired, humbled and amazed than we feel so I hope the participants also had life-altering/affirming experiences.

Have spent the last few days bumming around Kuching but, true to my nature, I grow weary of the city life. It’s been fun and I continue to learn, continue to make new friends however the woods call to me.

I have yet to see a monkey, orangutan or majestic hornbill–chasing after natural wonders will come soon enough however. For the time being it is simply wonderful to be basking in the company of friends and with myself as I fulfill my mission: Travel. Write. Learn.

I joked yesterday that if I’m doing two of the three it’s not a bad day. I do have some posts written but haven’t had the sustained opportunity to get onto the Internet to fiddle with proper formatting and publishing. Those will be coming shortly–at least before I leave Borneo next week.

Please keep checking back, leaving comments and also celebrating your own life.

Much love to all!
