My more than 1000-word article got acccepted for a travel website and 2 more needs revision with a fourth one on the way plus 6 more to be submitted as drafts. I am also very preoccupied with my full time job, but the good thing is that I work at home; hence I am able to take power naps in between work. I work best when I am alone undisturbed, just to earn a little extra for my retirement.
Yesterday, dad took me to sign a will of 2 copies – an original and a duplicate to bequeath my assets to my sisters and also Little Sisters’ of the Poor Old Folks Home. I used my dad’s lawyer who happens to be his church friend of the same moniker with an office at Green Hall, a few doors away from the high court. Finding a parking space is difficult, hence most law firms are set up here so that lawyers can just walk to the high court for litigation work, etc.
Today is “all souls day of the dead” or ‘cheng beng’ where the living honour the dead. My partner will attend with his siblings, leaving me some free time to myself and I can update the articles by today. Frankly speaking, the bed is still too tempting and I wish to take naps and turn on the air-con and sleep under my silk duvet. But too much sleeping will lead to poverty and one is told to work hard with one’s mind and hands.
Even if I can afford to retire now, I will still continue working to keep my mind active. An idle mind is the devil’s workshop and the devil is ‘Alzheimer’s disease’. Hence I buy books and read newspapers plus magazines to read to keep my mind active and to prolong my life. This is a fallen world, since’s Adam’s sin with sickness, disease, pestilences, wars, etc.
