Cheese, fruits&desserts and all the foods went down well without any leftovers. Thank you Helen for beautiful flowers and for all the pix.

Mon: on this 9thDay of Christmas, no Drummers drumming, but its a public holiday here in SIN today. Stayed put to not get caught in crowds before school starts tomorrow. Appreciating all these yummy goodie-gifts from all over the world – many thanks to all for them. A needed quite day to give the body&mind, especially the stomach a rest!

Tue: getting organized before putting away the season’s decorations, greetings, etc. This year will probably not be taking them down until after the 12thDay of Christmas as I will be having ppl over for the weekend.

Wed: package from PEI arr and still hoping to hike this thru’hike 700km/435m if only I can find some support to carry my hiking gears, no wish to hike with a fullpack. Just hope that I will catch my breath, have been short of it the past week! Feelings come and go, but conscious breathing keeps me sane.

And so I have to live. Because we live for more than just ourselves, Most of the time we live for others, keep putting one foot before the other, left and right, left and right, so that walking becomes a habit, just like breathing. Ina n out, left and right ― Thrity Umrigar, The Space Between Us
