Normalcy



Hello. Been quite a while. After several months of packing bags every so often, I finally felt some calm and normalcy over the weekend.

I did two loads of laundry, had a nice traditional Taiwanese breakfast just near the apartment with a couple-friend visiting, then cooked my packed lunch for the work week ahead.

I put on our Spotify playlist while folding my freshly-laundered clothes. On Sunday morning, I went to church and served at the 12 noon Mass. I walked along Xinyi District after lunch and reminisced those many years spent living in the area.

I had a nice quiet time, just sitting there at one of the alfresco restaurants with my lightly-iced caramel macchiato, people watching, reflecting. The weather was cool, but not overly so. I went home as clouds were looming. I caught up with my books and spent online quality time with loved ones.

I love these kind of days, even if lately it feels difficult... but I carry on, we carry on.

Perhaps this normalcy, is my new normal.

May we all have a blessed and meaningful Lent.
