I believe that the best gift you can give yourself… is the gift of time. There are (many many) luxuries that money can buy, and then there is the luxury of time. How often do us city rats get the chance to sit, sip, and wait for nature to take its course?

It was somewhat jarring (albeit it being painfully obvious) to realise today that the sun sets in its splendour of amber hues daily; yet in a lifetime most of us could probably count the number of memorable sunsets we have witnessed. What does this say about the neglect we have towards nature, and the pace at which we’ve put our lives to?

Some cities stun and awe and make you fall in love at first sight; but then there’s the one that’s like the stranger you inexplicably feel comfortable with over a first meeting – these are the ones that feel like home away from home.

Mine is a place where I can walk around in Lululemons all day; where the avocados are creamy and firm; where the first inhale of a flat white can send tingles to my toes; and where there’s always a good bottle of red wine at dinner.

“Only a man who lives not in time but in the present is happy. For life in the present there is no death. Death is not an event in life. It is not a fact of the world. If by eternity is understood not infinite temporal duration but non-temporality, then it can be said that a man lives eternally if he lives in the present.” – Ludwig Wittgenstein
