The last time I went out looking for dragonflies back in October had been rather disappointing. Since then, I have been tied up with work and various other commitments such that dragonfly "hunting" trips have been pushed to the back seat.
It's been a few months. And yet, there in the back seat it still sits!
Now that we are in the midst of the school holidays, I have put off going to any of these parks and ponds as I do realise that the last thing I will find during this busy period is peace of mind. So why put myself up for more disappointments?
Fortunately for me, I can get close to nature at my work place and that has certainly kept me sane. This is where I go on my kayak trips in the mangroves, several times a week, each week!
Yes, lucky me!
