I know, it’s too short a month.

But I did work on Ming Zhu & The Pearl that Shines, attended a panel on women in science fiction, planned work, spent time with my girls, and slept. At the same time, I am also coping in the change in dosage for my treatment and the slew of side-effects that arrived after.

Key words to self: never give up.

A very belated Litha/Summer Solstice (and for Southern hemisphere folk - Yule!).


Would you like me to start a new page to discuss Dragon Sisters (my YA Qing China fantasy)? (This includes Xiao Xiao & the Dragon's Pearl as well as Ming Zhu & The Pearl that Shines?)

That means a FB page.

It's Mid-Autumn Festival celebrations, but why is there still sadness?

... and it's good, but I am still on reduced dosage.

One teacher and one student had died. Flags at half-mast tomorrow.

As a teacher, I grieve deeply. For the parents, the students and the school. You might never see the school as such - for many, the school is just a building, teachers just faceless individuals who teach kids. But a school is a living, breathing organism, a thriving thing. Deaths like this shock the system and may not recover for a while.

I remember the teachers in my life who made a difference in my life. For Ms Sun (who then got married) who passed away from heart complications, I wish I could talk to you now. For the teachers who flew to your wake but died in the Silkair crash, Fairfield grieved for all of you. For Ms Ng who believed that I would pass my math, I wish I would hug you again, but the tidal waves swept you away.

Life is so short, so ephemeral, so brutal.

To all teachers still serving and retired, I thank you all.
