Hong Kong Chronicles: For those of you wondering if I have fallen off the edge of the world...

If the world was flat, and Texas was the center, then, yes...I fell off the edge.

But since we modern people know it's spherical, I flew over the north pole (for real!) and landed safely in Hong Kong last week. I really underestimated the amount of effort it takes to get set up in another country. It's hard enough in the same town, same state, and same country.

Anyway, I've moved to this lovely island in Hong Kong. Here are a few pictures of my new commute home from work once I get off the ferry. I ride a bike! (No motorized vehicles in the back village.)

I have a "to-die-for" potential lampwork setup. But, it may be another month, or two, or three (I don't know yet) before I can really get going again. So much to do! Like obtain a couch for sitting. A bed for sleeping. Dishes for eating. Aiya! (Chinese for oh, my!)

In the meantime, I may be able to get to the promised series of articles on, "Appreciating the Art of Lampwork for Jewelry Designers" since that requires no tools or setup.

Let me catch up on my sleep first. :-D
