Purple Clover

I will have a one week holiday starting this Saturday...
Needless to say, I can't wait to go back home.
Funny enough, for all the things I love at home...I can't help thinking of the purple clovers nestle in a pot in the front lawn.

I have always been fascinated with leaves more than flowers.
Clovers among others, I also love autumn leaves and ginkgo.

Like magic, a bunch of purple clovers suddenly appeared in one of the flower pots one morning.
As old as I am, I am sure there is a logical scientific explanation on how it ended up there but...
this small happiness...
Let me keep its magic and romance a while longer.

Working Life

It's been a while since I last updated my blog.
A lot has happened since...
With work and study....I just can't seem to find the time anymore.

I have been working for 6 months now.
Even though being far away from home is never easy...but I kinda like this town. ^^
Nature is abundance and I have never liked the hustle and bustle of city life anyway.
Quite easily, I adapt well to my new place.
Everyday trip to work...driving by paddy fields and mountains...
kinda fill the void I feel every time I think of home.

Many of my friends doesn't know the real reason why I have chosen to do my phd away from town.
Okay, maybe not the whole story at least.
It takes 6 hours by car, back and from.
I enjoy the trip so much though because I look forward to crossing the bridge every time.
The bridge has a significant symbol being a part of my memories of growing up. ^^

I guess that is how it is with my life nowadays.
I almost never make a decision just because.
There is always a reason behind it.

While I am enjoying this learning process of getting new experiences...finding my place in this profession...
creating a name for myself...
But I am also quite worried at times...
that I am losing my 'youth'.
My young-hot-blooded self.
I feel like I'm loosing the 'adventurous' side of me.

But I am confident I will find the answer soon.
Because those who seek will find. ^^
