Starting line

I walked outside tonight after a 16 hour work day. Stood in the Raffles Place plaza and watched the bright lights from the F1 track reflect off the buildings.

I heard the race cars roar over the Fullerton bridge. It’s nice to be part of something bigger.

Michael Jordan was officially inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame.  This catches absolutely no one by surprise.

He really was beauty-in-motion on the basketball court.
