Cloudy and/or wet days need not be miserable. I never realised that sitting around watching the clouds roll in over the hill from the other side of the valley could be so relaxing! I always thought mists were mysteriously beautiful, but now I realise that there's also something peaceful about the swirling currents of air - despite the fact that it's always moving, eternally changing before your very eyes.

I complain that I'm not a baker. In a moment of calm rationalisation, I realise that I just need to practice. Practice, practice and practice.

(Yes, I do realise that this is the Mandarin version. Anyone know if there's a Cantonese version out there?!?)
