Our first family outing to a public place: the museum, of course. On this occasion, the Asian Civilizations Museum, to view the Jewellery gallery which was being renovated and reopened just a few days before Singapore imposed its Circuit Breaker (lockdown) in early April.
My evening run took an exploratory turn as we decided to try a route not taken before. As it so often happens when confronted with new sights, I stopped to gawk at various wonders, natural and otherwise.
Mulling over the prompt for One Word Sunday: Patchwork hosted by Debbie at TravelWithIntent, I contemplated things that are made up of miscellaneous or incongruous parts, a hodgepodge perhaps, and yet these bits make up a coherent whole. And if you consider the Aristotelian idea of synergy, we could end up with a great deal more, and perhaps even better, than what we started with.
I used to chase shaded paths on my runs, a respite from the strong Singaporean sun & humid heat. Nowadays, I seek out the least pedastrianed paths. I avoid the Gardens next door when it used to be one of my go-to routes, as well as many other familiar curcuits as they are plied by fellow runners, walkers & cyclists.
