Just got back home after spending some time in New York / Connecticut! New Year's was cool, although the club could have been a little more organized =p otherwise, it was just fun to hang out all (extended) weekend, and catch up on some rest.
Unfortunately, I feel a little sick, which led me to initiate my "smother" process. Actually, the train ride from Connecticut to the airport and the 3 hour delay was perhaps timely in this respect, giving me some nice quiet time to do some reading and reflection. I got through half of Bonhoeffer's "Life Together" which was a reflective read. I'm feeling better now, although I only realize now how much it hurt to talk -- after not talking for half a day. Think i'll try to refrain from speaking as much as possible for the next couple of days. =p
It's a new year, a new beginning, with many things to clean up from before, in all aspects, [enjoyed service on New Year's] and I'm looking forward to all of small group, work, friends and family, including those whom I missed last week.
Until next time, this is Gladys Yam.
