Hello there!

Yay! I have found my way back to the blog. I am not a fan of the all-too-often used word "hiatus" and therefore shall refrain from using it to explain my absence here. I have no fancy excuses to cover my a%s* (the usual - sickness, horrendous rotation schedule, family, travel, weddings...); but things got... Continue Reading →

Of life, love and laughter.

It is all about the little things. Things that shouldn't matter but do. A handsome, older gentleman smiles at the rearview and thanks you profusely for letting him pass in maddening traffic when everyone else just pushed through. It doesn't matter, but you suddenly believe that the embers of decency and chivalry are yet to completely... Continue Reading →

Letting go.

Wanting to be in control is a basic human attribute. Needing to be in control is a specific personality trait. An annoying trait on most occasions, and crippling at others. It is a need that consumes you from the inside; an ever- present, relentless, churning desire to be on top of things. To know what... Continue Reading →

Exhaustion.

“My head aches, my eyes burn, my arms and legs have given up, and my face in the mirror has a grayish cast. The bed, across the room, calls in its unmistakable lover's croon, Come to me, come, only I can make you truly happy, oh, how happy I'll make you, don't resist, remember how... Continue Reading →

Shit happens!

Boy or boy, has it been a crazy couple of weeks or what! It is like the sky broke upon us just as the ground split open. And we were sucked into a vortex of ill health, work, childcare conundrums, bureaucratic limbo, silly rules and all round chaos. We have survived folks! We have, but barely.... Continue Reading →

A year on.

I'm often accused of being a person with nigh zero sense of occasion. Anniversaries and birthdays are like water off a duck's back to me. If not for social media and reminders from humans and gadgets alike, I would probably never remember any of them. I therefore stand out like sore thumb in an era... Continue Reading →

Living vicariously.

There is this blog I follow. Regularly, almost obsessively. The blogger is a stay-at-home mother of two who makes a living out of sharing her life on social media. She is not a master of words, nor does she write prodigious prose. She mostly recounts her day and posts pretty, filtered pictures. She lives in... Continue Reading →

Simplicity and patience.

Of all the things I wish I could be, the ones that would probably make the most difference are simplicity and patience. I wish I were simple in mind and habit. I wish I were patient with circumstance. Aahh, how much less harassing life would be then! Tao Te Ching is a tiny little beauty... Continue Reading →

Some days…

Some days, you are The Universe's puppet. You wake up slouchy. The alarm fails you. The coffee- maker stutters and dies. The milk boileth over. There is a mammoth, God forsaken jam at the petrol station. And a scuffle in the parking lot. Sambhar stains your crisp, white linen shirt. And your colleague let's you... Continue Reading →
