I disappeared and had no time to write anything for several days, almost a week-- not because was I starting to write my manuscript again. There was a special guest coming to visit me here in the mountains. During the past few days, I drove him along with NB to many places in the state... We had lots of fun together... More than that, we learned and knew one more person in another depth as a real friend.
This was the first time I hosted a person whom I'd never met or known as a person before... I just knew him through Pantip/Klaibann and his writings in his blogs.
From those articles, I was convinced that this guy was a talented one....
After knowing him as a real person during his visit for almost a week, I realized that this person could be someone important in our home country soon... More importantly, I also believed that with his aptitude in his expertise, positive attitudes towards people, strong integrity, mental strength and unrelenting will, he could be one of the best and finest police chiefs of Thailand. By that, he might have a fine chance to turn everything around to a better state.
At least, he won my vote (if it counted)... :)
Because of him, he's not going to be the last one of this "special" kind of special guests/friends.....
During the past years, I always wondered that this kind of "virtual" relationship might not be able to take it for granted...
However, POL_US had validated my belief otherwise...
One day, it would be my great honor being a host again for these people;
1) My A.T.'s angels: Rive Gauche, Piglet-Yorkie and the Vicky
2) My lovely artist/scientist: r k i
3) My fellow scholars: B.F. Pinkerton, Tony Almeida, ruiN, ไร้นาม, Little Red Riding Hood, AmoreVincitOmnia and piangdin.
You're all invited krub.... :)
P.S. For the pictures of this visit, I will post them soon in My Family blogs when I have time. :)
================================= 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.
