Shouldn't Life Be at This Pace?

I'm just procrastinating - suffering from some sort of writer's block; on deadline for an assignment. This photo was taken at Maclay Gardens State Park, Tallahassee, Fla. I was intrigued with the pink magnolia leaf and the little snail trying to move about. Upon studying the image, I noticed the little ant and the tiny water droplets left behind by the snail.

I've been busy, busy, busy, yet, don't seem able to accomplish anything. I've been doing a lot of thinking, contemplating and wondering about my life and the road that led me here and where the road will lead me next.

Ue O Muite Arukoo...

And the song plays on; I sang these lyric at least 149 times since last year. For those of you not up on your Japanese vocabulary, these are the first few words to the song "Sukiyaki."

A year ago today the journey began. Twenty-four hours in travel time (one way) for the month-long visit. What a long, strange trip it was. Oddly, a place I really miss. It's too difficult to explain, only the three other teammates and team leader would understand (we're pictured above).
