Seasons Come, Seasons Go

Contrary to popular belief, Singapore does have seasons.  Perhaps not the traditional Winter, Spring, Summer, Fall, but we certainly have Hot & Humid, Very Hot & Humid, Rainy, Hazy.

There are some mornings, before the sun has fully risen to heat up the earth,  you can walk in relative cool.  And when the humidity is lower than the norm of 100%, the combination makes for a pleasant run.  These types of mornings are more common late in December and early January, but today was one of those mornings.  They don’t occur very often, but whenever they do, I am grateful.

Ever so often, I find myself in a calm, restful place in my life.  Just like cool not so humid mornings, they don’t come very often.  For now, I bask in the sun without much claim on my time and energy.  I am free to recreate, to run, to colour, to play.  I relish this season, understanding that it will not last forever.  For however long it lasts, I am grateful.

    One of my favourite blogs, Miss Gentileschi at Art Expedition, reposted some posts from her archives.  I thought it was such a fabulous idea, that those of us who have not had a chance to see them would get to do so. 

    I am inspired to do the same; repost something from my archives, perhaps once each month this year.  To my delight, I discovered that my 1st WP posts were made in February 2016, so this is just about my 2nd Year Anniversary Month!  What fun!

    Care to join me and share something with from your Archives to celebrate our Pasts together?  Once a month, for the year of 2018.

    I picked this post Seasons Come, Seasons Go, as we enjoyed an extremely cool breezy few weeks – extremely unusual for Singapore.  It almost felt like we had a Winter!  I am reminded that as we go through different seasons in our lives, each one good or bad will eventually pass.  My challenge is to live in the moment, whether good and ill, embracing the seasons’ joys and challenges.
