Keeping track of myself

I deciding to start this blog so I can keep my story ideas in one place that I can find again when I travel. I'm always losing something; today I can't find my cell phone. That's no problem, silence is wonderful - but losing track of ideas, that's bad. A little about myself - I live in Laos, mostly work in the provinces. I come to Vientiane for red wine, pasta, then go off again to the remote areas and deep fried silkworms and entrails soup.

I'm working on science fiction stories that are based on some of the weird things that pop up in daily life. I have been living here for 8 years and have seen the arrival of running water in my house, 24-hour electricity and the change from an active oral tradition to a passive TV-oriented one. This is called development?
