Catch Up Newsletter for 2006

No Comments

I realized I hadn't sent a newsletter since April or so, and in the spirit of embracing new technology, I am trying it this way! 

In June my dad & Sydelle arrived to attend my cousin Nazra's wedding.

(I love it when ghostly balls join us in the photos!)

Then in July, Kshemendra & I flew to

L.A.

for the sole purpose of taking a sailing course in Marina Del Rey.

Then when we got back to

Sri Lanka

, we used our skills to crew the newly refurbished sailboat! (Kshemendra lovingly refurbished his late father's boats over the last year.) He wanted to use this photo of his boat as our desktop photo, but I thought it should represent us both somehow, and had some photoshop fun with it.

I had about 6 weeks upon my return to

Sri Lanka

to get my newly printed books to the distributor and organize a book launch and any publicity I could. Those pictures are on my website at www.malaynadawn.com/page5.html and the tale of the roll-out & press coverage is at my new writing blog at http://malayna-dawn.typepad.com. Do check them out!

Once that was done, we had a few days to go on a trip with friends to the cool hill country, with its tea plantations, misty mountains and waterfalls. Aaaahhhh….

And then I flew back to the

U.S.

for a friend's wedding in

Seattle

Where I was honored to perform the ceremony …

along with enjoying the only sunny Seattle weekend of the year!

and my high school reunion…

That's Kris Fong, Quynh Nguyen, Jonathon Murray and Wendy Wong there with me.

Let me know if you want to see more photos and I'll send you a link.

Then in October, Kshemendra came for a visit and squeezed a lot into his two weeks, including Cirque du Soleil!

 

Cirque This is what my flyboy would look like if he were a Cirque du Soleil performer. See the wings?

Wicked

And after he left, I squeezed in a few more fun things: like seeing "Wicked!"

…going to the Getty Villa to enjoy some ancient works of art (or porn as the case may be…see the buns of stone?)

 

and generally enjoying

L.A.

!

Now that I'm back in

Sri Lanka

, I'm busier than ever, adding another client to my freelance roster, trying to figure out how to promote my book and when to squeeze in time to work on the ones piling up in my head.

I hope your 2008 will be more than great, and keep in touch!
