What’s the end goal?
Retirement and being physically and mentally capable of enjoying it is the upcoming phase of my life on the horizon. As we all do, I want to retire financially independent and comfortable. Independent of the government and the associated B.S that comes with taking the pension. You hand your life over to them in exchange for money that provides a basic standard of living. Rules and regulation. Can do’s and can’t do’s. No thank you.
So hence the title of this post. I need to squirrel away more assets to provide an ongoing income when I retire. I start a new job next week and plan to really push on the accelerator.
The position is Sales Coordinator with a large Australian company. I’m really looking forward to sinking my teeth into something new and exciting.
Sometimes I feel my words are
a blazing flame melting the chalice
of your gold heart.
There is comfort in the quiet when
we cross the continents.
We feel but never touch and let the moon
devour us, set the night afire, too holy for the light.
In your presence I am profanity in the sacred sky,
a blasphemy of flaws too small to alter fate.
While I was thinking of you a fledgling
fell to earth, saved by the wind on her
passage to life.
We spent our Christmas here in Chiang Mai and fascinated with the beauty of the place. We plan 1month ahead before heading to Chiang Mai, and Chiang Rai via an agency that we knew. We were lucky to have a discount as we booked our ticket at 12go.asia back and forth. I know everyone is not in favor of riding a bus to Chiang Mai and prefer plane instead, though we are enjoying the ride—if you are as well. Cheaper! So here’s a guide for you.
Here’s how to get to Chiang Mai by Bus, Train, and Flight:
>Book your ticket online or in Mo Chit Bus Terminal (Chatuchak) directly.
>Remember that peak season is between November and early April, better to book your ticket ahead of time.
>the nearest BTS Station is Mo Chit, from there you can ride a taxi for about 10min…

Los guaraníes bautizaron al río agua grande, I-Guazú en su idioma originario. Durante su curso se fusiona con el Paraná y alcanza 1500 metros de ancho, que desembocan en un barranco de lava que se formó hace nada menos que 120 millones de años, dando origen a las formidables cataratas del mismo nombre.
Por allí navegaba Alvar Núñez Cabeza de Vaca en el año 1542, entre el océano Atlántico y Asunción del Paraguay, cuando el sonido atronador de los saltos de agua atrajo su atención; el español siguió su camino pero antes bautizó a las cataratas como Saltos de Santa María. Con el correr del tiempo los indígenas de la zona o Mbyá-Guaraníes fueron evangelizados por los jesuitas, luego expulsados de la región por la corona española en 1768, que habitaron conjuntamente con los pueblos originarios la zona que hoy comprende el Parque Nacional Iguazú. Un siglo después, con…

MORE THAN A MEMORY
You drift backward as I move forward in time,
Existed for but a moment in this world of mine.
You were so very real, more than a memory,
Our distance will come together, again we will meet,
A smile on your face, you meant so much to me.
More than a memory, personality, heart, and soul,
You once walked this land, my father from a moment ago.
