Moving on

Foreword/Forward…

Moving On!


…with patience, resilience, boldness and wisdom…to come through the spectre of the Pandemic step by step.
 
Finally, the f2f semester has resumed without disruption, after lockdowns and much online/hybrid learning over the past few years. We hope you have been enjoying the “normal” campus and student lives, and meeting some new friends offline too.
 
As the world is moving on with more opening up, we have to un-learn and re-learn, particularly sifting through the overload of digital information and gaining some new knowledge and wisdom. For those who are graduating soon, this is probably their last semester, and so planning and moving on to a new path and identity could be challenging. We hope to curate our programmes for you to pick up some seeds to grow in your heart.

“A Place in the Sun”
– Stevie Wonder (1966)
– Jake Shimabukuro/Jack Johnson/Paula Fuga (2021)
 

 
“There's a place in the sun
Where there's hope for everyone
Where my poor restless heart's gotta run
I know there's a place in the sun
And before my life is done
Gotta find me a place in the sun
You know when times are bad
And you're feeling sad
I want you to always remember
Yes, there's a place in the sun
Where there's hope for everyone
Where my poor restless heart's gotta run
I know there's a place in the sun"
 

“Tomorrow never knows”
– The Beatles (1966)
 

 
“Turn off your mind
Relax and float down stream
It is not dying
It is not dying
Lay down all thoughts
Surrender to the void
It is shining
It is shining
That you may see
The meaning of within
It is being
It is being
That love is all
That love is everyone
It is knowing
It is knowing……”
