Pai Poem; And a brief overview of some of my favorite spots

  Life in PAI full of LOVE Time warp pulling you in for a gentle hug Laid back It’s island time in the mountains Sunsets burn and glow Touch the aching parts of my soul A slow and subtle descent Into the inner workings of the mind Tap tap tapping into what’s been overlooked So faint within the veil of fog and smoke It can … Continue reading Pai Poem; And a brief overview of some of my favorite spots

Riding the BTS in Bangkok

  When I was first heading to Bangkok a few weeks ago several people detoured me from using the metro system– explanations of everything being in Thai, and a high likelihood of missing your stops and having no clue because they are seldom announced in English and other seemingly overwhelming deterrents flowed. I’m here to tell you the BTS Sky Train is awesome!! It’s clear … Continue reading Riding the BTS in Bangkok

Border Runs from Thailand to Myanmar

Here is what I discovered from my recent failed visa run to the Mae Sai border between northern Thailand and Myanmar.

Relaxing Into “Island Time”

For your own sake, for the sake of all beings, for God’s sake, wouldn’t you rather relax open as love’s offering than contract in stress and subjective confusion? Even if you were cooking dinner for yourself, alone in your house, why move as less than love’s open dance while offering your … Continue reading Relaxing Into “Island Time”

The Art of Taking A Shit in Thailand

(***This post is exactly what the title says it is, a little TMI but hopefully a useful FYI so you don’t go using your landlord’s dishtowel like I did) I came home after having a fabulous dinner with some friends at Big Mountain in Haad Chao Phao on Koh Phangan last night and I really had to go to the bathroom. After travelling for two days with crappy … Continue reading The Art of Taking A Shit in Thailand
