Well it is time to again return to the generic, I have always said that the best writing describes the fundamental human condition, I have tried to comply with this hypothesis, I think I talk generically. My favourite books are about such things, about loss and hope. No need to list them here, a page on this site is devoted to them. So what do humans think and feel? We are a small step from the animal kingdom. I have often said we are nothing but animals, unfortunately more complex than them, perhaps we will again become focused on life rather than the complexities we have discerned or invented. I’m at the beauty garden coffee shop today, Bukit Batok.
