In the last quarter of 2019, I made a very difficult decision to leave Australia, to return to Singapore and start over again.
What this means in hindsight now are –
I was able to escape the worst bushfires in Australia’s history in December
I didn’t have to deal with the storms and floods that followed in January
I am in one of the safest places in the world right now in light of the pandemic, with enough resources and no lockdown.
The borders between Australia and Singapore closed 4 days before Rod and I were due to meet after more than 4 months apart
With tighter measures implemented daily since, and neither of us being able to claim offocial residency in the other’s country, the chances of our reunion in near time is now bleak…
But I am still grateful
Grateful to be in the country I can call my home
To be with family and community
To have food and supplies
To be able to contribute to health and wellbeing of those around me
To share. To teach. To create
To be outdoors and in green spaces
To be healthy and useful
