Run in the mud: Nanowrimo Update Day 20

I haven’t had a good mud run in a long long time.  So much so that I actually considered putting my shoes through the washing machine, to my Loving Husband’s chagrin.

Breaking patterns and doing something quite different is good for one’s soul, if not for keeping shoes clean.   When the road seems never-ending and fatigue starts to set in, it is time to do something completely different. The anxiety over breaking routine, followed by the exhilaration of the novelty; result:  invigoration!

Nanowrimo Day 6 Update: Giving Thanks

This is an old familiar bench on Saraca Stream Walk, found close to the Tanglin Gate of the Singapore Botanic Gardens.  Just five months ago, this was a rest stop for me on my recuperative walks.  As I run past this bench this morning, I cannot help but pause to give thanks.  To remember gasping as I took each slow step, wobbling and trying to keep balance, determined not to have to hold on to Loving Husband for support.  For more details, follow this link.

Sunrises & Sunsets

Sunrise or sunset?  Which do you think this is?  I am sure that if I caption it one or the other, I could persuade you to believe me.  It is all in how I frame it for you, yes?  I am beginning to appreciate the phenomenon of seeing the glass half empty or half full, depending on one’s frame of mind.

I turned 50 this year. Did I roll my eyes at the prospect of having to celebrate another birthday? Yes. How do I feel about ageing, gracefully or otherwise? I am not sure. Continue reading “Sunrises & Sunsets”

Share Your World: a Singaporean Nightscape

The Marina Bay area is stunning at night.  Loving Husband and I had a stroll on the promenade on Saturday while waiting for Darling Daughters who were at the Esplanade: Theatres by the Bay, watching the Stuttgart Ballet’s Romeo & Juliet.  It was a balmy evening, rather festive with cyclists, pedestrians & live music from an al fresco cafe, enlivening our walk.

Share Your World: Inspired by Nature

Many of us find inspiration in Nature.

Singapore may be a city, but there are many wonderfully green places for pedestrians to wander about, mull over life’s mysteries and be inspired.  I love exploring the Park Connector network when I have the chance; these dedicated walkways/cycle paths run between parks to allow one to park hop,  providing safe passage for pedestrians & cyclists.  The Alexander Canal Linear Park is a beautiful and particularly lovely example, running alongside several housing developments.
