Usually it’s the tarot reader who knowledgably coins the above phrase while talking about your future.
However, my blog today will not be talking about the future much less tarot cards. Instead I’ll be talking about my lack of enthusiasm for sending out Raya cards this year.
Prior to this entry, I had just written, signed and enveloped only 8 Raya cards in the most cincai manner imaginable! In previous years I would have had already posted about 15 Raya cards by the first week of Ramadhan to avoid the Raya card pile up at the post office.
I guess I’ve gotten tired of the effort of keeping in touch with friends who are still dear to me while they apparently have moved on with their lives, which used to include me but now no longer.
It’s a sad fact of life, but I should just cut my losses and simply cherish those who have stuck around for the duration. I wonder, how much longer would these friendships last…
