Hopefully, I have found a solution to enable me to translate my thoughts into posts and eventually be stored in this Cyber Pensieve. Cluttered mind does not exactly feel good.
I (finally) decided to purchase an IPad (thanks to a friend who dropped by in the US recently). I am new to Apple so there are still a lot of things to learn but my hope is that with this piece of portable technology, I will be able to clear
my head from time to time.
And, this one is a trial post. I am experiencing first hand how to type a post and so far enjoying it.
Note to self, however, is that I need to find out how to turn off the sounds whenever I click. First IPad post and my hope is that there would be more to come.

Let us not enter 2017 with a frightened spirit and a heavy heart. 2016 was tough but we survived! A lot of things may not have gone our way, but there are still a lot of things to be grateful for.
2016 was a wonderful year full of adventures with two major milestones: diving in Tubbataha, Palawan and African safari in Tanzania. Things we dreamed of that now came into fruition. Bird watching also came in the picture as a new hobby this year – discovering a new way to appreciate God’s creation. For through it all, we are firm believers that we live in a very beautiful and wonderful world.
It was also the year we journeyed back to Hogwarts, Oz and to other parts of the world through books. Or, through time and space we journeyed accompanied by the Doctor and his companions.
If there is one thing I’d like you to remember: take time for yourself. 2016 was a great initial step towards this as we spent more time on things we love – handmade products, nature and exercise. It is not selfish.
As 2016 comes to a close, let us hold on to the positive memories as we march forward full of hope. May 2017 be as wonderful, if not better, than 2016.
