It’s been two months since I’ve posted anything, so for my first post in 2022, I want to share this picture of a colorful sea urchin shell I took a couple of years back, which feels like a totally different time than these last two years. In a blink of an eye, things could change, and this quote from Henry David Thoreau really resonated with me —
“You must live in the present, launch yourself on every wave, find your eternity in each moment. Fools stand on their island of opportunities and look toward another land. There is no other land; there is no other life but this.”
Even if people around me say that we should just learn to live with COVID, it still doesn’t feel right. Maybe because I’ve been cooped up at home for two years, and it’s been getting to me just now. I mean, I consider myself a homebody, and “peopling” really isn’t my favorite thing, so I thought I’d be okay, but I also realized that it could get tiring. So here I am in 2022, feeling hopeful that this nightmare will soon be over.
There. I wanted to say more, but I am tired. Maybe tomorrow will be a different day. Oh, siya sige. Till next time!
