11th February 2023 Kala and Beena
Hello everyone😊, I have been so busy to pen my thoughts for a while. However, this painting by Kala is so memorable that I can’t wait to put my thoughts down.
She has painted this on Procreate, and her memory of that tree is vivid. This temple is unique as it is on top of a hill and with a great view of the South China Sea. The Bako National Park is close to this temple and a great tourist destination. We used to bike there and return every Sunday for many years, about 50 kilometres. One of the exciting features of this stop was drinking fresh coconut juice from the nearby seafood restaurant. We would then climb those steep steps to the temple, pray and sit under that tree to see the never-ending view.
Such moments are to be cherished. When I was there with Kala, we reminisced over our past and felt blessed to be such good friends. We live far away from each other. But when we meet, it is like we never left. Have you got that feeling with friends? I love that feeling as it meant that friend left an imprint on me😍. Never let go of such friends and connect with them regularly.
I told Kala that if that tree could talk, we could listen to 1000 stories😆😆😆. I hope dear readers stay tuned to this website as we post our thoughts, stories, poems and much more🙏😊.
