This afternoon I have returned to beautiful Luang Prabang from the nearby hills, where I spent New Year – completely offline.
This is a gentle start, and reintroduction to life in the 21st century, while I try and hold on to the peace and rest I experienced in those beautiful hills.
I have spent 9 days, reading, writing, walking and breathing. Tomorrow I travel to Bangkok and on Thursday the next round of checks and monitoring awaits. But in the meantime, this is at the back of my mind.
In the coming hours, I will share my 2015 words. They are ready, they are already working their magic, but the backstory needs a little polishing.
In the meantime, I would like to wish kindness, peace, laughter and music to all for 2015 and beyond.
