…is now where I’m going to start and end my daily routines. If grasping a new rhythm in Jakarta was one thing, I’m now adjusting to a new one back in Bogor. Nevertheless, I’m feeling quite blessed beyond measure right now because, at the end of the day, I get to rest under a roof of a house my mother has passionately rebuilt. She’s also adjusting to a new set of habits right now while happily being away from Jakarta’s migraine-fueling traffic all the way in Alam Sutera, and I do hope that this will refresh us and help us grasp new outlooks on life.
