This week’s Daily Post Challenge “Earth” & the celebration of Earth Day has given me much opportunity to think about the world we live in: during my runs, visiting the Lee Kong Chian Natural History Museum , culminating in National Geographic’s Earth Day Run. Continue reading “Thinking on Earth”
I don’t make resolutions; simply because I have such a terrible time keeping them. And the guilt, oh, the guilt! A long time ago, I decided that it is too traumatic, psychologically & emotionally, to deliver ultimatums to myself. Continue reading “Egg-citing Eggs-periences: The Joy of Easter”
Loving Husband and I are not big on Valentine’s Day. We would have let Feb 14 slide by this year as we do most years; after all, we have 364 other days in which to express our love & appreciation for each other. Continue reading “What will you choose to celebrate?”
As we greet the Christ child, we sing one of our family favourites: not a typical Christmas carol, but one which we feel reflects the joy of the occasion.
“I danced in the morning when the world was begun
And I danced in the moon and the stars and the sun
And I came down from heaven and I danced on the earth,
At Bethelem I had my birth.
Dance, then, wherever you may be,
I am the Lord of the Dance,” said he.
“I’ll lead you all wherever you may be,
I will lead you all in the Dance,” said he.
Wishing you all a blessed Christmas!
In these few days leading up to Christmas, with the mad crowds, tragic happenings around the world, frantic preparations to celebrate the occasion, I wanted to take a little time to remember why we do it all:
because of a child,
a baby born from hope,
to bring us peace & joy,
in the name of love.
What are you anticipating this season?
The 4th candle is lit. For love.

As a grumpy teen wading through the murky waters of the adult world, tussling with my mother was commonplace. Although I did not engage in shouting matches or outright rebellion, as my Significant Adult Figure, Mom was often the scapegoat for my angst. Many of our exchanges would inevitably end with my mother exclaiming in frustration: “Wait till you are a mother, then you will understand!” Continue reading ““Wait till you are a mother …””
On Sunday, 10 July 2016, we gathered at Angsana Green, East Coast Park to celebrate running & those with special needs with Running Hour 2016. Continue reading “Running Hour: Run So Others Can”
