The Dragonflies'Lair~Thread XXXI
Talented poets and friends of The Dragonflies' Lair | October 5, 2006 | bentfeather/Poets of the Lair

My Dragon Fly and Me



If I could be a Dragon Fly
and wing my way through the sky
I would never be shy
just me and my Dragon Fly!

By moonlight we ride the wind
chase the comets tail for fun
by day we would hide from the sun
our fragile wings would come undone

On darkest nights we would use
fireflies as our guide
we would dip and we would glide
through the heavens open wide
and scatter diamonds in the night sky
my Dragon Fly and me...

And we would wing past our lovers
silent in the night...
to kiss their face in our flight
much to their surprise and delight
my Dragon Fly and me in sight...

Such a view do we share
away up here in the air
of breezes soft through our hair
my Dragon Fly and me a pair...

Yep I'm here, posting all over the place! Though I should run and change my airline reservation (new job in Taiwan, starts Weds!, but I've been reluctant to mention it in case it fell though, looks pretty solid now).

What's up?

Oops, now I must run again, my hour at the Internet cafe is up and I should go do that airline reservation thing. I'll be back on line later today.

See ya! :-)

Ok, I'm back. I had to take a flight on the 12th instead of the 11th, a day late for my new job. They'll probably cancel the offer for that! (hopefully not! LOL)

Are you stressed about the North Korean nuke test. Ironically I'll bet getting closer to it when I go to Taiwan Thursday, and yet still about 1500 miles away from it, I'd guess.

Yes, serious times now. Japan will probably build nukes after this, that's what people say anyway.

My new job (if they don't cancel it!) is about an hour north of that capital city I like so well, however it is on the train line (while the little hill town, was closer, but had only a slow bus, sometimes it took 2hours each way with bad traffic!). The train always takes just one hour, and of course no traffic stops, so I should enjoy living there. Get paid more too, work more hours, but get paid more. Who knows, in six or seven years I can come back to the good old USA and buy that farm out west.

Though I want the farmland more just to have no close neighbors, I don't know if I'll actually till it. I plan on putting up a log cabin house (or some other inexpensive alternative building style) and a huge greenhouse, operated by me! With a small garden in Oregon I got to where I could keep maybe 20 people feed (squash, eggplant, tomatoes, big radishes, all of many types, plus many other plants, they produce like mad!).

So the plan is to meditate and read in my secluded greenhouse beside my log cabin on my private land. Works for me!! (PS, I reserve the right to never do any of that, and just buy a regular house in a regular town and get a regular job somewhere, but the dream gives me something fun to fantasize about and work for!)

Howdy, Sorry I crashed after I pinged you.


I was thinking about you over there and was a tad worried.

WOW I sure hope your job does not get cancelled due to the late flight.

I think your dream is grand I bet you'll get to live it.

Okay, well take care of you.

Ah, there you are. Yes I've been surfing all day. I think the job should be OK, this is a four day holiday weekend in Taiwan so I won't hear from them again until tomorrow, and Thailand had a weekend holiday so I had to wait until Monday to change the flight, and today the US has Columbus day, so the consulate is closed and I must wait till tomorrow to pick up my new passport! Holidays, holidays, everywhere! :-)

But we'll see soon enough, and I will still go to Taiwan if they cancel the job or not, it will be even easier to find a new one being there in person!

Well, I'll keep everyone posted about what country I'm in over the next few days. (it sure won't be North Korea!)

That's understandable. Whew! I just bumped into this totally passive aggressive, pony tailed wimp and his prostitute..er girlfriend, and he completely pissed me off. I haven't seen anyone like that since I lived in Seattle, the land of passive aggressive wimps.

I was walking in the Internet cafe and he cut me off, then walked slow in front of me, then moved my chair around before I got to it, then made this punky face while he called his stupid relatives on the Internet phone and glanced at me too many times.

I know! I know! Why would I care about such stupid things??!! I also don't know, I guess some people can just get under your skin. I never get angry at anything any more, all that Philosophy and meditation and breathing exercises really work, but damn if I didn't get angry at that wuss.

I guess it's cause they start those stupid things when you're totally not paying attention to them, then they feel like they "got one over on you". Oh, I was so pissed! So I came back to the Internet cafe but he's not around. Maybe it was the liberal pony tail that did it, or the fact that I could have smashed his face in, but that's the thing, worms like that are trying to provoke you, but we're not in a sue happy place right now, in fact it could be dangerous to make someone angry around here, especially gratuitously.

Or maybe it's just the cowardice of gay little things like that. If you want to provoke me then push me, slap me, knock me down, but don't just run around in front of me when I'm walking and then run off after I've gotten angry. I guess some males know nothing of manhood. He was clearly a Kerry voter.

Fall is beautiful and the air is literally delicious. It's 65 F out there and the air is pretty dry, not like the tropics at all! Sorry, Starbase, I can't breathe in the tropics.

I was thinking of you yesterday and praying all would be well. It seems at least there have been no "leaks", but what lies in the future remains to be seen.

What have you gotten for news, dear one?

Oh, just mostly Post #107 above, probable new job in Taiwan starting Thursday, but the only flight I could get puts me there a day late, hopefully they won't be angry.

They've been really cool so far, offering to pick me up at the airport even, so I don't think they'll really care about the delay. Other than that, same old same old.

OH my gosh, ROTFLOL!

I can sure understand your anger-it would fluff my feathers as well. I think it's the attitude they project (for me anyway) the deliberate body actions and facial contortions that would really make me want to slap them into the middle of next week. And that's what they want!
It's not worth wasting your positive energy on that sort of lowlife.
Ya done good!

Those attention seekers usually get what they're after and it is not always what they had in mind. ;)

I bet that jerk doesn't have a quiet place in his life.

Post 107, that's what we've heard about Japan and China and Australia, among others, are pretty ticked off.

I was hoping his test would cause a quake that would level North Korea only.

Stay well and good luck on your new job.

Thought for the day...

in "The Taming of the Shrew," William Shakespeare
wrote, "Do as adversaries do in law. Strive
mightily, but eat and drink as friends."



This is Monday, Oct. 9, the 282nd day of 2006 with 83 to follow. The moon is waning. The morning stars are Venus and Saturn. The evening stars are Mercury, Jupiter, Uranus, Neptune, Mars and Pluto.

I bet that jerk doesn't have a quiet place in his life.

Thank you. You put your finger right on it, and now I can feel sorry for him. Yes, he must be miserable all the time, otherwise he wouldn't have the capacity to just create it on the fly like that.

Yes I was drinking wine and posting all day long (not that I was drunk, now that I switched to only drinking wine I found it keeps my head clear, so I never drink to intoxication) but I was winding down after many satisfying cups and six or seven hours of satisfying FR conversation (that's all I did today). And I'm sure I was absolutely broadcasting vibes of happiness and satisfaction so strongly that a miserable person would react as negatively as we would react to a negative!

Some guys have true Thai girl friends here, but many are with just garden variety prostitutes, and his was pretty obviously a rent girl. You know, now I suddenly feel really bad for him, he was talking to his family on the Internet, but didn't sound real convincing. I was totally trying to not hear him, but he was talking to a kid in a voice like he's not used to talking to kids, sounded wooden. Then he asked a strange question, he said "So, how's your new teacher....do you still like her?". I thought that was a weird thing to ask a kid about a teacher who's just new, like he was trying to bust up any relationship that got within his grasp.

I'll bet no one loves him (and can we blame them!?) and he was talking to his divorce kids, and he's with a woman who only wants money from him, and otherwise despises him for what she has to do for the money.

Then I walk by oozing joy and happiness, good wine, good friends and conversation on the Internet, new job and some money in the bank that I earned this last year too. He must have felt a stab of agony, probably thinks God hates him (of course God doesn't hate!). Well if I see him around the tourist area before I go I'll give him a friendly smile. Thanks bentfeather, you hit the philosophical spot!

Thanks, and regarding North Korea, that event kind of shifts China's focus far from Taiwan, so Taiwan should be peaceful, peaceful! I'm anticipating an uneventful, but rewarding existence there!

You have found the rude dude to be worthy of reconsideration from your first viewpoint. That is the mark of maturity so many today miss altogether. Glad to hear your heading back to some center of employment, looking forward to more of your posts! Your travel log has been a great source of fun, as has your comments with the pictures. You ever thought of doing a 'travel' book for the person who wants to really see the world about them?

Hmm, travel book, no I never really thought of that. I'm more a nose-to-the-grindstone type, I'd count on doing just some modest regular work over time and saving up. Maybe once I've got enough for my little retirement farm I might spend a couple years doing something like a travel book.

Well good news, I heard from my new job and they aren't furious that I'll be a day late. But bad news is she mentioned that she talked with her manager about it, which in Chinese culture is code that you're walking on thin ice. Pretty much in their system anything getting sent up the ladder is a bad thing, means your "making trouble", and in these group based cultures (and Chinese are pretty much the inventors of the group based culture) "making trouble" is being on the hot seat for "removal"!

However it's not fatal, I'll just have to be more butt kissy and appreciative once I get there, and having spent the last year wisely saving (and now leaving Thailand with the majority of my travel budget intact) having access to a nice sum of money largely takes the edge off of all other stresses, doesn't it?

Still, I'd like it to work out, and seeing the plane was full on the day I was supposed to be there, I was not thrilled, and had to wait both all weekend (Thai holiday) to just find out what flights were open, then all day and night to hear back from the job (Taiwan holiday), and this morning our US Consulate should have my passport, if they're late I can probably kiss this job goodbye, but there are more fish in the sea around here, and I can easily go back to Plan B which was to pay for Chinese classes in Taiwan (gives you visa extensions) and just live there under my own steam while I take my time looking around, not a bad alternative!

And, as a final note, if you're ever working in a Chinese environment, and if you happen to be a rising star, then even if they're really excited about you, then they'll hide it and keep it from you (not send it up the ladder, at least not that you'll ever see them do it), until some big moment that they'll announce you're great. That's after ragging on you and dumping on you. It's contrarian as hell, but they always have this idea that, even if you deserve something good, everybody should get to hammer you before you get the good thing, or else it isn't fair! On the other hand, good Chinese will always give you the good thing, but just after you "pay" for it. Bad people might cheat you, but that's true everywhere, of course. That's why mentions to boss are bad, but no mentions are either neutral or good. Crazy, but that's why I like it, I guess. Mental stimulation!

Yes, I guess waiting for all these pieces to come together had me a bit more wound up than I was admitting to myself. And a little voice tells me I shouldn't be drinking wine anyway. Though as I cut back and cut back on booze (ultimately quitting altogether, but I'm not in any hurry!!), I find I'm drinking "cleaner" drinks (like wine, in fact I now drink only wine, if there's no wine then I don't have anything, because Socrates says it's OK to drink wine, but in "moderation"!), and I'm drinking less often, like now I have a moderately strict rule of drinking no more than two days in any week, and sometimes no days. And in fact, I've found the reduced frequency and only drinking wine does actually keep my mind crystal clear, and I easily remember everything I said and every one I talked to and where, it's pretty cool.

But still, even just one glass slows your cognitive abilities, then the weenies of the world have more of a chance to mess with you (and to be fair, many of them are roasting in agony, even if they don't show it on the surface, so your sudden "weakness" (that is, your suddenly being a bit slow on the uptake, because you imbibed in an adult beverage) is a catalyst they are not capable of resisting)). And all that comes together to imply that my run in with crap head is largely my own fault for drinking (however moderately), and something being one's own fault is the most annoying thing of all, isn't it?! ;-)

Ah thank you, I have faith that things will work out (seek and ye shall find, kind of thing), up until the end that's there for all of us (remember this is a closed system we're in (and thank goodness for that too!!))

As far as the head games, it's funny because I never play them myself, which I guess attracts such people to me, because they sense they won't get any return attacks, but my profession and my mentality being in software design (that is systemic architecture, though I'm not doing that work in Taiwan these days), so the head games spell themselves out to me like the designed systems I'm so used to cataloging! So I see them, but I never use them myself.

Now I've often thought of writing a book about that, but I'm very reluctant to put such information in nasty people's hands. Bad people cook up enough head games without me providing them a play book of all the games I've ever seen!!

Well, no, not necessarily, I mean you were in the Internet cafe for a reason. There is no law against drinking any beverage. Maybe you're too hard on your self over this. I would drop it. I agree with your being a little wound up over your affairs, we all do that.
I guess the other guy was too. You are only responsible for your actions, you did nothing to him, just reacted within your own skin. He is not worth any more fretting over. ;)
