Taking It Easy For Now

It is apparent that my body is no longer able to withstand the rigours of a hectic schedule as evident by my participation in the 7th DPI World Assembly. I am still recovering from the exhaustion of the 7 days in Seoul. It is a matter of the spirit is willing but the flesh is weak. I would have loved to attend more workshops and network with the thousands of leaders of the disability movement that had congregated there. However, the long days coupled with the unsuitable meals that were provided at the convention gradually took its toll. There is so much to do following the convention but I am generally sleeping longer hours and taking it slow during the days. Hopefully I can get back to my usual routine by the end of the week.

  1. yes, i can empathise with u. even after a half-day outing my body will be aching, my ass feels like the old bedsore wounds making a comeback and heat on my face burns like hell.

    have a well-deserved rest, as i’m sure your stomach welcomes the familiar local dishes after a week digesting on korean stuff.

    take it easy, bro!

    Thanks. 😀
