Sonet for Mok:

There’s a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens:
a time to be born and a time to die,
a time to plant and a time to uproot,
a time to weep and a time to laugh…
-Ecclesiastes 3


This was the time,
A woman whose life wasn’t like any other,
Resolute.
Dignified.
Proud.
Her legacy lies in the life of her children,
And the grandchildren after them.
She suffered not the memory of her time,
She made no excuses for the ridicules of her innocence.
For hers were the freedom of her generation,
Unbridled,
Untamed.
Her spirit roamed over the hills,
and the mountains of her youth welcome her,
For that is where she is most free.

Hello again!

I have left this blog for almost 3 years now. In fact, I almost forgot that I have a blog! What happened?

I guess sometimes life happens. Things get in the way, or priorities shifted in ways that are difficult to explain.

A lot of things happened. In 2014 I registered as a student again. Forever a student. It's now May 8, 2018 and am now 54. Sometimes I wonder when I am going to stop being a student...but, it's one of those things. Life is a different path for everyone of us. I didn't have the privilege to go to university as a young woman. God's path for me was to take care of family first. Children are now grown up adults, successful in their own ways. So, by the grace of God, I ventured again to discover my life's path. To grow. Growing means learning new things. Picking up new challenges. The PhD is the challenge for me. The universe has a way that opens opportunities to explore what one can achieve.

Will continue treading this path. This is the path right now. There might be new ones.in.the.future.

I am grateful. Life is good. God is good.
