Update

Sorry for not writing in so long!  I’ve been very busy during this holiday, surprisingly, and have not had much quality time to sit down and write a quality entry.  I do have one coming soon about me and reenacting, again.  There’s a new foreigner here in Jindo who went to a Quaker school, and she has caused me to think about that query again.  It’s such a complicated issue that I really tend to babble about it, but I will do my best to sound coherent, when I do write it.

Planned Posts

Posts coming soon:

Equality and Teaching in Korea: Oil and Water
Today’s REALLY UnQuakerly Moment (and how uncomfortable it made me)

Note to Self: Posts to Make

Simplicity & The Great Purge (about when I got rid of 75% of my personal possessions)

Playing War (about being a pacifist while reenacting)

Plainness vs. Conservatism (about how my emphasis on simplicity and function over fashion has gotten me mislabeled as a conservative from time to time)

Light Bulb Moment!

I was having trouble sleeping again – the “head noise” I posted about the other day was the culprit – but this time I figured out what the running conversation in my head is:  I’m writing blog posts in my sleep.

I’m serious.  I guess that this journal has been so cathartic that my brain is like “Yes!  Tell people!” in overdrive mode.  Now, I’ve been blogging for 8 years, but this is the first time I have ever really talked about this subject (as I mentioned in one of my posts), and so I guess it was much-needed!

So, I’m going to finish up my reenacting vs. Quaker post now (it’s 5am!), and I also have one coming now that’s about how most of Korea’s tremendous number of nuns and monks (both of Buddhist and Christian persuasion) wear their traditional dress on a daily basis, and the fact that yesterday I realized that it’s reminding me of the Amish.

Anyway – enjoy benefitting from my insomnia.  At least it’s serving some purpose.

Topics?

I have a post about my weird relationship with the combination of reenacting and pacifism in the works, but in the mean time, I would like to ask you, dear readers, what you would like to hear about in the future.

Ideas?  Suggestions?

 

Okay, it’s sleepytime, as it’s 2:15am.
