Day #179. I miss coffee, hot meals, being still. I get coffee and hot meals regularly, but what I really miss is company. A table, ambient music, someone across or beside me, someone to talk to during meals. The Ortigas stops are unreliable now, length-wise. When before the train slows down to an almost-rolling stop so I can maybe spend a minute at the station—now it only gives me 20 seconds tops. Some days I still get a minute, and I appreciate a whole minute now more than ever. I miss Mama. She still hasn't visited me.
