I am in between books, I get frustrated sometimes. What should I read next? My
boyfriend says that I am only happy when I am reading a good book. So you can
imagine what I might be like when Iím not. Grr.
So I decided to put together a collection of passing thoughts.
Stuff to read when youíre in between books. Just long enough that you can read
it in a car without getting carsick. Something to glance at on your way to work
without missing your train station.
11 years later, this is the collection of all the stories that I
have written. It is thanks to the encouragement of my friends that I plucked up
the courage to put them together into one volume. Thank you!!!
I wrote these stories while writing my thesis and working
full-time, travelling extensively, being in and out of relationships and across
many countries where I lived and/or worked: Australia, China, France, England,
Mexico, Peru, U.S.A, Thailand, to name a few.
Writing kept me sane during some very busy and lonely times in my
life. Thereís something soothing about a good word, a funny expression or an
interesting observation. Iím reminded that despite the chaos, thereís meaning in
there sometimes. Even if you only glance at it in the form of a passing thought
between bus stops.
I hope that you enjoy them.
