A day of writing and administration. I stay in almost all day, except for a short visit to the supermarket where I buy the ingredients for a salad, that will be my contribution to the party at night.
And that party is really nice. There is plenty of delicious food and karaoke. I find myself ruining Hey Jude and California Girls and Chiquitita and we have so much fun. I also introduce my project and can establish some contacts for a woman who wants to build an orphanage on the Philippines. It makes me feel useful. I am happy to be here, and do enjoy my life. I don’t hold much of the primitive doctrine that goes like “give one and God will return you ten”, implying that that is the best Reason to give, but still, I am sometimes quite perplexed when I realize how good my life is today.
