Back in Singapore and in the moment

It's 2016 and I am spooking UE Square at 7:30 a.m. I have many memories of this place - the starkest being the number of weeks I spent in tropical heat working on a research project in wine choice. I rate 2010 as one of the most unpleasant years of my life, being surrounded by some of the most unpleasant people I've ever known. There were patches of sunlight, but in general the year was bleak and I lost my faith in humanity.

But the wheels turn  - nothing lasts forever. I lost a job, found another way through (so far) and managed to reconnect with the great passion of my life - skydiving.

I've just been teaching here for two weeks and have two weeks more of it - punctuated by flights between Adelaide and Singapore. This week, though, I have the pleasure of sharing Singapore with my wife, daughter and youngest son.

While I still have a great many obligations - web meetings and marking etc - I have the chance to live in the moment. I like Singapore I love my family and I look forward to this week.
