REBECCA MOONEY This year my focus is on my passion (some may say my addiction) for walking. I will write a creative walking journal for 100 days. This has been partly inspired by The Artist's Way, a book about creativity which I read some years ago and followed the advice about writing a journal. I stopped writing 3 years ago, which is far too long to go without putting thoughts on paper. I doubt everything written in my journal will be published on this website. I'll add a random photo of a trusted companion; my shadow.


Day 4

Awoke to quietness this morning, not the normal traffic and construction noise of Singapore. On a good day, I can add the excited shrill screaming of a child. What adult condones such behaviour in an apartment block. I need a moment to gather my composure, remind myself I'm not in Singapore and continue. It's a beautiful morning so I head out for a beach walk along the South China Sea coast. My interest while walking is to experience the new landscape, the sights, and the sounds. It makes me feel alive...until the clouds parted and the temperature rose to 34'C even with the sea breeze. The most astonishing sight between the high tide and low tide marks of the beach were hundreds of little holes in the sand with perfectly round excavation balls piled around the entrance. I spied that the site workers were crabs. I love a walk when my head is cleared because there's so much that's new to explore.
