woods hole oceanographic institute
A great film of expedition in Greenland.
Global Warming Q&A. Something you want to know...

Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute (Boston) - One of the greatest oceanic research institute in the world. I have no idea about this institute, until my best friend, shih-nan got a post-doc position there. Gradually, he shared some interesting stories with me and tell me about how cool this research institute is. There are many interesting articles and films in their webpages. Check it out! LINK. Also some interesting facts about the Global Warming. Noted: Wired enough, despite the cold front strike us in this week, my mind is still full of worries about global warming, and of course, we have the major responsibility for this problem. BTW, shih-nan is a avid fly fisherman, dedicated his leisure time in pursuing sea-run brook trout!

what is "BLOGGING"

A recent thought came out of a friend's blog: see LINK A very interesting thought and worth to take a minute to think about "blogging".

What and why doing blog? I have ask this question to myself more than a dozen times after 4 years of blogging... here is my blogging philosophy - It is as simple as a fishing log. I started my blog right after I read a friend's fishing log,and website. LINK I printed his fishing log and read it many many times. I love Ryan's writing a lot, he is one of a hell angler, writer and traveler. I felt I am fortune enough to know him through the internet. Even fortunate enough to have read some of his private writings that are waiting for publication. What make his writing so good? I am not sure, maybe is his honesty?! His style is simple and flow naturally just like a gen clear creek from the mountains... Sometime it is like a old and wise hunter that telling me all the stories. Any way, I love his fishing log, so I created my own version to record the life of fishing.

Unfortunately, as you can tell, I am so busy and clumsy in words, and of course maybe a bit lazy... so, most of my blog entries turns out become "a photo a day"... "lazy stay"... most of the entries are just a photo and a sentence... it really does make my parents and families happy though... at least they know I am still "kicking" HA. So my blog is in very simple, form it just a fishing log. Thus, I did not really encounter the competition mode (mood) that others has been experienced. or might have a thought about it. The reality is I really don't care if I have followers or some "fans"... I am simply happily to share some fishing stories with the internet readers and,most importantly, myself!

Why myself?
Well, it is writing a diary for myself in next 30 years or 50 years if I am lucky. I love the concept of keeping a diary for the future me. Quiet honestly, how surprisingly I forget all the details and how much I have been changing regard to living style and philosophy to live by. And those aspects are quite interesting to be aware of. I might not be into flyfishing again, I might be getting even more crazier about flyfishing later in life. But what if I forgot I have done in the past... the blogger keep doing a great job for me, all the thought are achieved by date, on the internet. I can dig out any day and any photos, if I can access the internet... how cool! Thanks blogger! Of course, my life is not all about fishing... that is the reason I still keep a personal diary, unpublished! : ). Anyway, I encourage you to jump in to blog, if you are thinking to do so. It is a very neat internet experience, just be aware this is a place to share, not to harvest... do not SPAM your friends! : )
