Some Random Thoughts About a Bubble

Perfection sounds great!

Ken "Charlie" Grace

I wondered if life, like the world, is just a sphere of our understanding. Outside of that expanding bubble, nothing exists other than speculation and rumour.

Truly understanding the nature of our sphere might just be the beginning of love.

I think our spheres are a compilation of our thoughts, actions and achievements; an ever growing consciousness.

I also think that if you love everything and everyone in your sphere, then your world is perfect!

Unconsciously Conscious Living

Ken "Charlie" Grace

After a night of pleasant company, good food and a couple of bottles of red, it occurred to me that a lot of the decisions we make and their subsequent actions may be the truest reflection of who we are! So, if my decisions and what I believe is truly me, then where did this me come from? Where the hell did my beliefs come from?

That night at the dinner party, a women boldly proclaimed that she hated Indians and their awful religious based third-world behaviour. As the night proceeded it occurred to me that she seemed mostly ignorant of Indian culture, so I asked her how many Indians she knew. Her answer shocked me as did my rudeness, yet if she didn’t know a single Indian, then where did her thought come from?

Ken "Charlie" Grace

After a noisy, jolting overnighter on the train from Sa Pa, we arrived in the Vietnamese capital of Hanoi, at the ungodly hour of 4.30am. As the train doors opened, wild yells and angry arguments could be heard, as numerous touts and cab drivers jostled for the arriving business. Amongst this bedlam, we managed to negotiate our taxi fare from an initial 120,000 Vietnamese dong to 80,000, then back to 100,000, and finally all the way down to 50,000 dong, without actually saying or doing anything. Eventually, we arrived in a dark alley, in what appeared to be the middle of nowhere, so we happily gave our bemused taxi driver a thorough dressing down, whilst getting soaked in the pouring rain.
