Doctoral week.. Or i am really not a dodo

Flew back last week for the doctoral week. It was a good meeting learning bout all sorts of random stuff... I felt less alienated as I understood terms like patristics, hermeneutics, epistemology, etc etc. It was good to feel the progress I have done. My presentation went ok as well, so that's nice. 

I flew back feeling thankful. Thankful for the time with people I love... Thankful to remember that I m not too dodo... That there is a context that I am from, yes, it is different, but to feel/remember that it exists. I am rethinking what it means to be comfortable to be who I am, especially when confronted with differences. (like not having children, my ang mo husband, living far far away).. perhaps being tall has helped me with being more ok with being so different. But, this difference felt more pronounced this time round, and I am also happy to "own" it more. this is who I am... This renewed confidence has been good... Thankful for that. 

I kept flying into more sun... View from one's window.
