To Be or Not To Be
A little kingdom I possess,
Where thoughts and feelings dwell;
And very hard the task I find
Of governing it well.
-- Louisa May Alcott.

Another year on planet earth I complete today. There's not much of thoughts to share, just that having written some little thing for these past two years on this very date...didn't want to break the record!
There is a sense of serenity in me which had been missing before; I do not know if it has to do with age or experience or a fuller confidence in myself or insight into others or a calm acceptance that no matter what comes, it was meant to be and maybe for the best.
This day has been full of many happinesses but the best of them from an unexpected quarter. I got this nice little camera as a gift from my family. It is not the gift itself but the whole lot of things that this camera signifies to me that makes it such a happy surprise. I had been meaning to have one ever since I can remember, and never could get around to it, for one thing or another. I might have bought a better one given time, but now this one has become too too precious for me. It is a token of a wealth of thought and feelings...don't know if I shall ever be able to return even a small part of how much this gesture means to me...
