Buddhism in Myanmar - A Personal Perspective
Let me preface this by saying that I only spent five months in the country, working as a trainer with the British Council. So my observations are necessarily limited by that amount of time. Nevertheless, I got the distinct impression that Buddhism is taken ...

I Know - It's Been a While
If you are, or have been, a reader of my blog, you may have been wondering where I disappeared to, or why I stopped posting. Well, I really have no excuses, so I'll just say sorry and carry on. My last post was Vesak 2014 in Singapore. Not long after that I...

Hi everyone. I'm happy to be back in Taiwan working for government schools in Miaoli County.
I wanted to let you know my website has a new name, but all of the same materials you may have seen before. There's tons of materials and ideas for teaching and learning English, many created during previous periods in Taiwan.
I'm happy to share them with you for non-commercial use as I hope you will respect the effort put into producing them.
I hope you find many useful resources and ideas here for your own situation. All the best, Greg.

Not just the top 5 regrets, but 5 great pieces of advice to live life deliberately and with intention:
1. Decide to live your dreams whilst you still have your health.
2. Don’t work too much. Get off the treadmill of endless work.
3. Take time to express your feelings to those you love and to those who care about you.
4. Cultivate friendships. Don’t let your friendships slip.
5. Happiness is a choice. Make the decision to be happy every day.
Don't panic - I need to do this as much as anybody.
