Yes, I am a tad lackadaisical and do not post often enough… But in retrospect just think of all the rambling tangents you’ve missed during the breaks between each entry… 😉

At this stage in my lovely (pre) journey I currently have documents on their way to South Korea, which will then (fingers crossed) result in a visa number to be taken to the Chicago Korean Consulate for another (fingers crossed) visa number which will then result in plane ticket being bought, my mother officially throwing her hands up in despair at my vagabond ways, and me sorting through what ought and ought not to be taken in my two, airline regulated suitcases… woo hooo…

To be honest, none of this has really hit me yet and I’ve been in a somewhat surreal state of mind. I wonder if it ever WILL hit me or if someday I’ll be meandering down some crowded street in Seoul and find myself bombarded by the realization of what I’m doing… perhaps I’ll keel over at which point adorable little Korean women will frantically point, yell and fan me with their bags. (Obviously this is a complete assumption as I don’t really know what Korean women do upon seeing an obvious foreigner faint).

All I know is that for the first time in a long time I feel free… and just the way I do when I see a fresh notebook… full of pages which could turn into anything… and as I’ve said before it’s that “anything” part which appeals most…

so here’s to the anything…

And my promise to try posting about the “anything” that comes at least once a week (maybe more). .. Or in the word’s of my friend Christopher Fletcher, “blog ferociously”….
