Yay, back in the blogging game. Been posting from my phone the past couple of days and it can be rather difficult with such a small screen. My thoughts flow in a mess of stream larger than an iPhone screen. Not easy to iron out, and these two days’ words have been new and … ahem … difficult for me, so I needed to do a lot of research (which was superbly fun).

I am now writing at the resting area just outside the onsen I have been climbing in and out of. hehe. Talk about idle, worthless fellow, that would be me these two days. I could not even meditate in the spring water because it was too hot for me to keep still. ๐Ÿ˜€ Guess this is a good break for the body to just warm up and let loose. Brain can be as restless as it wants, but please just give body and heart a break. My hobo heart has been very happy, wandering around sacred sites – soaking in the wisdom of old old trees and the peace of the these shrines and temples.

Plus, they give free ramen here! I just slurped (very loudly) a bowl of gluten-filled ramen and getting already to be knocked out before bedtime.

I originally thought rag-a-bash (taking the meaning of scoundrel) is someone who bashes about ragged people. Which was what has been causing my level of stress the past week. Which was also why I have been hiding out here instead of comfortably chilling in the room. I pretty much have had enough of hearing a broken record complaining non-stop about this that and everything else. Not really knowing how to deal with the situation, avoidance seems to be the best solution at the moment. There are four more days to go, so I am not exactly ready for a full-on screaming match. Yet. Heh. Earphones are pretty good too. I must say, I am pretty impressed by how much a person can complain about the same thing over and over again. Not sure if terse remarks work, but I just have to throw in comments like, “they have as much right to this place as you do” and then brain shuts down together with ears. Heart seems happy. ๐Ÿ™‚

Definitely soaking in the zen-ness here. Yippee~

Thank you MNL for yesterday’s prompt: Ragabash.

  1. Impotence makes some people complain. Other people complain as a way to bond with others. I’m pretty disgusted by both. ๐Ÿ™‚

      1. For me it’s understanding that where I am is where I am and I don’t reallly have much choice but to make the best of it. Some of my friends call that optimism. :p
