Dawn Brings a New Day

It’ll be Easter tomorrow.   As a child, Good Friday and Easter Sunday were compulsory church days for me. Even now, as a half-pagan semi-atheist (I am multitudes), I sometimes feel a slight desire to attend church services during Easter.  Easter, with its representation of new beginnings and coming back to life, feels even more important … Continue reading “Dawn Brings a New Day”

Passionate Frenzy

Valentine’s Day has never been a big day for me. Not when I was single and believed that I would be forever alone, not when I was in a relationship. Not even after I got married. I’ve always approached it from a cynical stance ie. as a day for KPI-driven capitalists to make a killing … Continue reading “Passionate Frenzy”

But here we go again: To feed my Korean obsession, I watched this video on the history of North and South Korea. It’s slightly … Continue reading “Noshings #13”

Thesis

I started drafting my thesis in bed, on my mobile phone, typing it into my Apple Notes app with two thumbs as if I was sending a long text message or an email to someone.  The blank page feels less intimidating on a phone screen. And 36,000 words seems easier to achieve when the first … Continue reading “Thesis”

Flow

I woke up before six this morning and couldn’t seem to go back to sleep. The heart pounding was back and although my eyes had difficulties opening, my brain refused to settle down.  I got up to work.  Sometimes when I encounter these sorts of mornings, I write. Other times, I pull up my to-do … Continue reading “Flow”
