Lists are good. Lists are purveyors of sanity. Lists may not get tasks done, but they bring order to the chaos that is life. Lists, at certain places of work, can literally save lives.

How worthy are you?
“No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.” Eleanor Roosevelt How does one not feel inferior? How is self- worth determined? And what is the consequence of being worthy?

The Matrix and I
I recently re- watched the The Matrix series, probably for the 21st time. I was in in standard eight (eighth grade) when the first movie came out.

If you haven't noticed, every succeeding generation is more prone to impatience. Why wait anyway? Our lives are most likely going to... Continue Reading →
The genesis of this blog is rooted in the singular loneliness of a new mother. The written word has always been my solace. Whenever I feel alone and detached from the hectic world around, I gravitate toward the written word. This was meant to be a sort of online journal, instigated by massive changes brought...

The Bright Side.
Hiya folks! How has 2017 been treating ya guys thus far? All 18 or so hours of it. Our little family isn't one to 'ring in the new year' with festivities or parties. I rarely send out new year messages or cards. And the first of January is just another bloody ordinary day. No resolutions.... Continue Reading →
