Now I am about to finish the final draft of a book of poetry. When I returned to Bohol last May 15, there were two items in the post for me. I like the seclusion. Even here in the city, I prefer a quiet reclusive life.
But looking at the book again, it is a very important personal project. I probably isolated myself too much. I need to rest for a while, though. When I get better I’d like to go out a bit more. I’d like to take up bongo lessons. I wanted to destroy all my work. But they are busy with their careers.
These are why I am exhausted. Maybe I can start travelling again too. Sometimes I think about going to school again, to study. I feel much better. My cat Earl Gray liked to stay there with me.
This afternoon I received a very kind and thoughtful message from Imeng, a friend from needlework. I couldn’t make anymore brush poems. They are friends far away, in Germany and Australia, that I met in Ravelry. I would like to continue being in touch with friends. I probably isolated myself too much. I didn’t play any music. Like what Imeng may have done for me.
