It is unsettling. I mean, I am home in Brisbane, but with no job and no direction. I keep busy of course, and I am writing a lot, but sometimes I feel at a loss. Other "English teachers" who have been overseas report on this too - except those who has a job to come back to.
The Korea plans are on one day, and off the next, and as I write it looks like it is back on again. There are two small cities that are on the agenda and we are waiting for confirmation. So it is possible that I will head off early in October.
As it turns out I have been near both of the cities. One is on the way to Jeonju and the other is south of Jeonju. In any case, at the moment I am just waiting for confirmation.
I'm spending time practicing with the new camera, and I have done a lot of writing. One of my projects is the "novel" and the other is course material for Korea. It's funny - we've both found it a little hard to concentrate on it. Is it on? Is it not?
Anyway, I have a couple of weeks to pull it all together and I am full speed ahead.
Today I am going into the city again. I have an appointment with my ENT surgeon to check on my ears, and I will go to Ted's Cameras - I lost a lens cap on Saturday at the Writers Festival, so I need a new one, and I will walk through to the Roma St Parklands and see if I can get some good photos of flowers there. I like taking photos of flowers, and as it is early spring there may be some good subjects for me. Roma St Parklands is built on old railway yards. There are apartment blocks and a great park area. I haven't been for a long time.
Then to the ENT man, and back home on the train again.
