Clarity is a rare luxury in my life. My very own mind betrays me,it sends me self-destructive information,and I often get lost by the ruins of my actions.This blog helps me remember who I am and the dangers that lurk inside of me. I thank you for your readership.Your presence here makes me feel less alone.I now live my life imitating the words of Tom Hanks in Castaway-“I know what I have to do.I have to keep breathing. And tomorrow the sun will rise, who knows what the tide will bring in.”

I got news that a Senior Lecturer's baby isn't well.
Seriously not well.
She had it tough.
She was in the midst of her divorce when she was pregnant and now this.
I don't really know her but I remember she was very interested in my running stories.
She'd listen and smile.
So sad to hear that this is happening.
Just hours of knowing this tragedy, I bumped into her.
I gave a courteous smile and asked if she's leaving already. (Academic staff has flexi hours)
She said yes and gave a courteous goodbye or something -can't remember.
I noticed that she's thinner.
I shared my thoughts with my brother.
"Isn't it sad that some people are fighting for their lives and here I am very willing to give mine away? I wish there's an exchange option available, but it just doesn't work that way...."
My brother immediately agreed, "I know what you're saying."
"Have you signed your donor card?"
"Since year 2000"
