A time-lapse series of a gleaming, bright sunrise across the water from Townsville, Australia.

Snapshots of iskender kebab and feral kittens and cats roaming the streets in Istanbul, Turkey.

Lengthy discussions about matters of the heart (that never grow easier or less complicated) with my kindred spirit in Malaysia / Singapore.

The lives and stories of five lost souls in Shanghai via Tash Aw's Five Star Billionaire.

Travel plans to be booked again and the passport dusted off from this summer (time to catch up on all the movies I've missed).

The world seems squeezed, compressed and is a little smaller today.  The earth is a blue green marble in the palm of my hand and I hold it close to my heart.
