From where I sit and write.
At times, I become one of those writers at Starbucks witing my next screenplay or book..
And sometimes, I just write at home…
This is where I write the best. I wrote the book coming out in Chinese before this year’s end here. My autobiography which answers the question I am asked [...]

From where I sit and write.
Has it been a month since the last update?
Sorry, a lot has been happening…Had friends in town recently. Always good to see old friends, especially when they come to visit Beijing. It was one after another.
Just after Thanksgiving, I was in a taxi. A car cut in front from a side street and the taxi [...]
Had a great Thanksgiving with some American friends. Yes, a traditional meal. New friends and old. Thanks to David and Ruby for the invite. One of the best I’ve ever attended.
First snow of the year in early December! People here love the snow in Beijing (Almost no snow last winter. Perhaps even no snow.) But [...]
Thanksgiving is this week…
Just want to say thanks to all who have helped me get to this point in life…

I went to Capital Normal University for the second time this year as an invited speaker. The topic was the importance of English in today’s world, and the room was packed with students. In a situation like that, I find myself listening to their spoken English skills. It becomes not so much a lecture as [...]

Stayed in Beijing, and did a lot of skating in the autumn sunshine…around Hou Hai and thru the hutongs…I have been skating there for many years…always like to [...]
Well, ok..tell you what’s going on. Finished my book. It’s an ebook called “Radio ChopstiX- An American DJ in China.” It’s in English and available on ebook sites outside of China. (Chinese version will be available in book form by the end of the year in China. I’ll let you know when that happens.) It’s [...]
Was inline skating around Hou Hai over the weekend. Saw a few families hanging out with each other and I was inspired. Took this picture. Peking Duck not for dinner!
I’ve lived in the center of Beijing for 7 years, in the same red brick apartment. In that time, I’ve gone through many changes.(Read the book when it’s out this year!) I found this apartment from an agent who was recommended by a colleague. Love this place! When I moved in, it had been refurbished [...]
