Some days I feel like I'm in a long journey back 'home'. Once every couple of months I become self conscious about the distance that separates me from the place where I grow up. I find myself lost in thoughts of an ancestral home and asking when I will sail back to Ithaca.
I normally cope by surfing on the internet. Walking familiar streets with Google Street View. Checking photographies and newspaper sites, listening to songs and before I can tell I'm back to normal.
I may decide one day that I want to live again in Ithaca. It's a great place to live. I was very happy all the time that I was there, but If one day I decide to go back, it will be because it's my future, not my past.

These years I learned a really good English and a pretty basic Mandarin Chinese. Currently I'm improving my Chinese in the Taipei Wenhua University (中國文化大學).
I've been drawing all my life, but in Sydney I studied Art & Illustration in the Sydney University and in the Chinese Art College of Sydney. I became an Australian Citizen and founded my own company.
Here in Taipei, I'm able to make a living with my art, which is a dream come true and something to be very grateful, considering the Financial Crisis that the country where I was born is facing.
Blogging used to be something to do in 2008, where I started this blog. I was able to get in contact with great people and experiment with the online medium. Today it's a Social Networks world with a shorter attention spam, but I believe an easy to manage space in the net still a good thing.
I don't know yet how to approach my online presence in 2014 but I'm working on it. Hopefully I'll came out with something fresh, simple and attractive.

Yesterday I saw the movie "Thor: The Dark World" here in Taipei. I have to say that even when it's not a great movie, I realy enjoyed it. Some movies are amusing and entertaining, without many emotional aspirations, and this movie plays well some exploration of emotions in the characters without trying to be pretentious and entertains.
