The Click Between the Cactus and Myself

DSC_0235

Green fingers, I do not have. I have tested it over and over again: there is no plant that survives under my care. Which is a pity because I would love to have plants in my room. Plants purify the air. Then, I thought of cacti. They might not be beautiful in a conventional sense, but they are certainly tenacious. Thy survive even under the harshest conditions. So I bought myself a cactus and it is still here and flourishing after a year. I love my cactus!

The Sunset on the River: Beautiful And Shy

Sunset

I can remember the sunset in this photograph to be so breath taking. It was just so beautiful. At the same time, it is also elusive. As if it is camera shy. I did not have my DSLR that day so I was working with what I had: my camera phone.

But since I started with my day job recently, I barely have time at my disposal to engage with other activities that are stimulating both physically (running) and mentally (writing). Like any other day jobs, mine is consuming most – if not all – of my time and I need to learn how to manage my time more wisely, so that my life will be more well-rounded.

Early this morning, while it was still dark and cold, I was already on my way to work. And as I look at the full moon that was still shining so bright as I bike to work, I promised to myself that I must do some writing as soon as I get back home. Writing is one of the many things that I find fulfilling.  Now that I am back from work, I am so exhausted to do anything at all, including the one that I love the most: writing.
