On the morning of Dec. 14th, 2007, I woke up, gave my children a morning kiss and whispered to them, "From now on, I will be a better dad".
In the night before, I retrospected my life during the past 6 years and I found many parts that I felt sorry in what I did to them.... As a person, I realized that I could be a better dad....
I should spend my time with them more, but I chose to do something else to serve my personal interest.... I was sorry about that and I realized that I could not rewind the time for them. But, it might not be too late to start over.... I would appreciate our time in every tiny split second and embrace all of that with glee.
Smiles on their faces and their giggling would be my only rewards that I saught for.... No more an workcoholic and research-oholic dad....
It's time to repay and redeem in what I had missed from their lives.
Now, it's my job to make them smile.... All of other things are all secondary... I just would like to keep my only promise for them, "I will be a better dad."
All chapters in our lives will be remembered and shared with all of my friends in written forms.... From all these years, I realized how important of memories are.... Those beautiful stories in my life would be forgotten if they were not written down.... I think I'm right that I have "immortalized" those and shared with you.
If you don't mind my "textmode" style, please be my guest and follow our live stories.... It's all of our adventure and memorable live experiences.
================================= Note: My life has been intertwined with works and many others. New responsibility has emerged, resulting less and less time for my ordinary life. Although, a love to write is still intact... But having less time is related to having less imagination.... Therefore, I could not come up with new writings for quite some times.
It might be a good time for me to leave this forum for moment.... Please take it as Mr. A.T. is having a sabbactatical leave or something like that....
As noted above, my love to write is still the same... and will not be changed. Sometimes somehow, I hope I could come back and give some thoughts in this blog once more.
Cheers, Mr. A.T. June 6th, 2008
My pen-name in Pantip is amatuer translator. Actually, I'm a lousy translator with lame translation. My pen-name is somewhat misleading, I have no background in linguistics what-so-ever. Anyway I love to read, write and communicate with people...
Reading is my most favorite hobby. I read everything from shopping bags to articles in theoretical physics. I do research and teaching for my living. So, reading, writing, thinking and doing research works are my everyday routine.
I would like to define myself as a person who is accepting new ideas and adopting those into my way of life.
I believe in power of knowledge/education. I think every society can be a better society with knowledge. Ignorance can be dispelled by it. Humanity can live sustainably and harmoniously with each other along with its biosphere with understandings in the nature surrounding it.
Apart from my philosophical thoughts reflecting who I am, I can tell you something I like or love in particular;
I love dogs.... Particularly, labradore retrievers.... One day, I would like to spend my time and life with them as a big part of my family.
Zhuge Liang is my hero. With his wisdom and faithfulness, he led a tiny army to a mighty and formidable kingdom. He left his humble residence with a hope to come back. But, sadly, he had never returned and died far far away from home in a horse carriage in a battle field. If I could choose where I would, I would say where-ever my lovely wife was nearby.
I value happiness and my family as my first priority. My profession and my philosophy come in the second. Pursuit in wealth has never been in my desire.
I'm glad to be your friend, and look forward to seeing you around krub.
