It’s the end of another week and things are pretty much the same. Covid cases seem to be increasing in Singapore, especially of the newer omicron subvariants, known as BA.4 and BA.5, that account for about 30% of new Covid-19 cases recently. I wonder when we will ever go back to some semblance of normal. And I feel like a broken record saying this all the time, but what can we also do? Everytime we think we are over the hill, a new obstacle comes up and we take one step forward and two steps back.
Today’s quote is courtesy of one of my favourite authors, especially for children, Roald Dahl. This quote is part of a larger sentence which goes like this:
And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it.Roald Dahl
Magic was very important to Dahl who believed it to be transformative and provided a way out of a difficult situation or an escape from a dull or harsh reality into a stranger, more exciting world. Acording to Dahl, it is all about using the eyes. If we closely at something and observe minutely, it’s amazing what wonders will pop up and that true magic often begins in minute observation.
There’s nothing to update about BB & GG as they are busy with school and internship and nothing has changed since last week. Work-wise, I am also at the same place, though I am hustling for new clients, but nothing has happened that as well. I am still hopeful that something will change and soon.
And on that note, please continue to remain safe and stay masked.
