I'm going on a bear hunt...

There was a black dog scratching at my door yesterday.

It was my sister’s birthday and I didn’t get to speak with her because of the time difference and her being at college.

I found out while on the ‘phone to my Dad that someone else has died. This makes three since the beginning of January.

So today, I am going off piste; I am going on an adventure into parts of Bangkok not covered by the Nancy Chandler map because I am feeling in need of change. I need to get lost in my head, see new things, embark on a mission to nowhere; an artist’s date if you will.

I am already feeling cheerier.

What an excellent plan. Sorry to hear about your trio of deaths; I had a January like that last year, and it's no fun. Hope your adventure has the desired result - and please do tell us about it when you come back.

Enjoy and find some healing on your adventure.

Bea, mad as a hatter.

Thanks LPlate. (It was the crack of dawn where you are!)

Queenie, thank you. I'm back and totally knackered. I shall spill all tomorrow.

Liz, thank you. I really can be, can't be.

Carol, you see along with everything else, I do expect you to be psychic!

I must say I laughed at your last post about the French attitude to queues, I understand exactly what you mean!!
I hope you have an interesting and inspiring day , I think I could do with something similar, it gets too easy to settle into a routine and when the Black dogs are nipping at the heels[as I know only too well] getting out of your comfort zone often quietens them down. But do watch out for Brown bears!!!!

So sorry JJ hope the change of scenery does youa power of good.xx

Hey lovely, hope you've chased that big black dog away. Horrible creature (that's the dog, not you!)xx

JJ Beattie said...

Sheepish, I didn't see any brown bears! Only dogs. Yes, I think expanding one's horizon is important. I'm glad to report that I feel quite a bit cheerier today.

Flowerpot, thank you. See above.

Helen, phew! I thought you meant me.
