Welcome back! I feel calmer just looking at your pics. And I hear you on writing in your head -- sometimes I wish I could write half as well with my keyboard as I do while dozing off, waking up, in the shower, hiking, on the bus... ;-)


Yes, yes, yes! I had exactly the same thing happen during my recent trip to Slovakia - headed off full of good intentions to get loads of writing done...ended up writing not a word till I got home. Welcome back BTW.

I got relaxed just viewing your pics & reading your entry. Glad your trip to Borneo worked out this way, Kris.

Dawn Herring

So glad you enjoyed your time off. Writing does need space. Sounds like you were inspired and refreshed. Perfect prerequisite to great writing. Nice pics!

Thanks for sharing, Kristin, and welcome back. :)

Great Pictures! Welcome back...

So good. What a great lesson. I need to unplug once in a while. Doesn't ever happen, but I certainly need it.

Christina Katz

Welcome back! Can't wait for our upcoming vacation. Not quite as exotic. But we can stand some serious down time after a move and a musical in February. You look tan!
