Letters 456: Of Ukulele & Imperfection of Life
Benjamin Franklin once said:
"One today is worth two tomorrows."
To you whom I haven't met yet,
I believe learning to do nothing now & then is very important to us as much as the sleep for our body. Many people, unfortunately, do not believe in 'doing nothing'. There are some who feel that that if they 'do nothing', they may come across as being lazy. Over the years, my life has taught me a lot of about 'slowing down & do nothing'. It is certainly not a bed of roses, but I learned that it is actually not so bad after all.
Dear you, my life is indeed imperfect. But I still choose to celebrate my life in full. Anyway, today I was in George Town to buy something for myself. I saw plenty of instruments such as ukuleles but they had no tone so yours truly didn't buy. They were certainly very nice looking being inlaid with colorful design but I wanted the tone. I was offered a ukulele for RM 450.00! I am not joking. I don't think he was very pleased when I told him it was an instrument I wanted to buy & not his shop.
Still I won't do any grumbling as I am in good mood as the weather is being kind to me lately. Just think of a nice weather, not a cold one, no sweating, etc. Certainly that is the most healthy weather in recent months. Because my mind is empty at this moment, I will finish this letter which means another one less to write before the New Year comes.
Always another day nearer to the end of the year & always another day less to be with you. Until then, have yourself a wonderful life, wherever you are hummingbird.
The Half Moon Serenades.
