I resolve to be hopeful

Happy New Year. Best of the year ahead. May you greet the year with new optimism, and may the year respond with health, happiness and renewed prosperity.

Looking back on the last year; there were things we could have done differently, things that didn’t go as we hoped, and things we left undone. A few things to reflect upon: If we remembered to say ‘thank you’; if we chose to ignore rather than react; if we took a disappointment, not to heart, but as a call to action, then we’ve done okay. Let’s move into a New Year with hope, optimism, and a renewed desire to leave things better than we found them.

I have been in Asia since early 1996, and have taught in local schools, universities and language schools in South Korea, Indonesia, Thailand, and China. I was a director of studies at language schools in China and a secondary school administrator in Indonesia. Along the way, I've been a teacher-trainer in Korea, China, Thailand, and Indonesia. More importantly, and I hope more efficiently, I've been a husband, father, and grandfather.
