“The only reason for time is so that everything doesn't happen at once.”
~ Albert Einstein

Seasons come and go. Of course, it's hard to use seasons to gauge the natural cycles of things especially in Singapore. The seasons we get are probably more or less of a range of conditions popularly described as Sunny, Fair, Hazy, Cloudy, Partly cloudy, Rain, Showers, Thunderstorm, Windy. Perhaps that's why we don't really pay attention to our natural cycles but get caught up by the unrelenting artificial (9 to 5 + OT) ones.

I remember studying in Canada where you feel the natural cycles instinctively. In the depth of winter, people are more moody. We rest and sleep more. We don't move that much, don't want to get out of the house. In Spring, we feel fresher, happier as if everything has been renewed. Even then, there is a joy when we recognize a change in seasons. We rejoice to see the first snow flakes, or the first glimpse of spring or summer. And we begin to tire in the middle as we grow in anticipation of the new season. These are the natural up-and-down and in-and-out cycles. Once we understand this natural rhythm, we will be more able to ride both phases. Some days we feel down and I think we should be entitled to enjoy feeling down... haha SO enjoy it and let it past into the next phase!

Perhaps a new year resolution should be to live more intuitively, to sense the different transitions in our life, to let go of things that we don't longer need, and to keep each day fresh and filled with wonder (like taking a ride into an unknown part of little India and experiencing the art of nine lives... and feeling the sudden irresistible urge to own a eyes-wide-shut, ear-to-ear-grin Catmasutra painting ;)

“Be aware of wonder. Live a balanced life -
learn some and think some and draw and paint and sing and dance
and play and work every day some.”
~ Robert Fulghum
