Good, peaceful nights

Last week, again, was a tough week. It didn’t seem as daunting as the previous week, though, because a gruelling schedule has practically become habit. Amongst the many things that got me through last week, was actually a trip to HyperCity.

In addition to the regular groceries, I bought a very fetching jar of chopped black olives and some flavoured goat cheese. Both were pricey (Waitrose products). But they beckoned with such simple, pastroral charm that I couldn’t resist. Over the last week, whenever I returned home around midnight or after, it was good to have a hunk of warm, mealy bread smothered with goat cheese and layered with lots and lots of chopped olives.

Sometimes, when I have dinner in the quiet of the night, with only my fan and laptop for company, I often wonder what it’s all about. Sinking my teeth into that slice of consummate fulfilment, I get my answer.

Ah! There's nothing more mind numbingly chilling than wandering in the aisles of Hyper City.

I get that question too. standing on a lonely rainy train platform in chilly holland, waiting to back to an empty home, i wonder why i do this. but when i see my mom's face when i take her some good news from school/work, i get my answer :) so many things in life take on significance when we look past ourselves, don't you think?
