The picture above is of Cybiont and I, performing a set of new songs (including the one below, called So Much Work for Love to Do), in Auckland. Time is passing quickly here in New Zealand, with so many awesome people to meet and socialize with, beautiful hikes to do, waterfalls to discover, and personal writing retreats to immerse myself in. Starting next week, I’ll be posting a few articles on this site about why I’m still in New Zealand and the journey (inner and otherwise) I’ve been on for the last few months. In the meantime, please enjoy my latest published articles, including a piece on Good Luck (which might be Bad Luck, or vice versa), and how taking a Sabbatical is good for you.
Must the glass be half-full or half-empty? What if there’s a different way of looking at things entirely? Here’s a new perspective.
It’s that time of year. With short (cold) dark days and a long haul between the Christmas and Easter holidays, we all go a little bit stir-crazy. Although many of us take vacations to clear the cobwebs, there are many other Americans who can’t or won’t.
But time away from the office is quite necessary, and can even be financially beneficial (as counter-productive as it seems). You’d be amazed at how rejuvenating a sabbatical can be for your life and career.
Profiles & Shout-Outs
Cybiont and I are on a roll…having just recorded what I think is our best song yet. It has gotten rave reviews already, and it will likely make the next album release (more on that in time). Please have a listen of our latest song: So Much Work for Love to do. (Email subscribers, please click through to my site to play the song).
And a little celebration is in order: I’ve been named TravelAvenue’s Favourite Blog for 2011! It’s nice to know that a few travel sites find my content interesting enough to syndicate. World Reviewer has been another staunch supporter, adding many of my posts (such as my recent Indian Pacific series) to their featured pages. Cheers!
