Silent Day

2nd experience at a silent meditation retreat. Made me realise that doing it indoors and outdoors is really… different.

 

The Campus Pond

It’s funny how some things have more beauty¬†from a distance.

Ever since I spotted this pond on campus, I’ve always thought about how nice it would be to go up to it.

The chance came one morning, after the coursemate and I finished an early consultation with A and had some time to spare before class started.

“Let’s go to the pond!”

I wasn’t exactly disappointed, but it certainly looked different from a distance.

It was more shrouded – shrouded with potential, hope, and mystery.

Maybe that was what made it alluring.

 

Up close, it was simply – different.

Maybe … that’s reflective of many things in life too.

 

Anyway, I still enjoyed myself taking in the surroundings, and having the coursemate weave natural accessories for me ^^

 

 

 

Brisbane Botanic Gardens // Mount Coot-Tha

I took the wrong bus, alighted at a not-too-friendly stop, had to ask for directions, but eventually… I made it.

It was only after coming back to Sydney when I realised the stark contrast between the flora and fauna. Greater appreciation of climate and vegetation now, something I haven’t felt since my geography-studying days.
