Ma Wedensday! Pre- dawn rumination.

We had a rough, fractured night. Some nights suck the life-force out of you. You question your circumstance, and your very existence. You yearn to be carefree and untethered. You crave a long, hot, calming hour or two in the bath. You wish you did not have to chose between a nightly shower or having... Continue Reading →

Of optimism and hope.

  I love the bright, jarring city lights. Rustic beauty and rural charms do not besot me for long. Even the most beautiful, tranquil, nature infused vacation destinations bore me after a while. I miss the zippy, hotfooted life. I miss the swift and purposeful existence. I yearn for the sense of belonging and familiarity... Continue Reading →

Chasing the sun!

At the crack of dawn, The Mister and I sneaked out of bed. Like an elite, enemy reconnaissance and rescue team, we made no sound and went about the motions in nigh darkness with trained precision. The Little One was to be left behind, and we were to leave without her knowledge. The poor thing would... Continue Reading →

Goodnight folks…

There are such days. You wake up with leaky nares and lead in your sinuses. You face is puffy with lack of sleep and your lab-coat and clothes aren't ironed for the day. You drink too- hot- coffee and scald your tongue. The traffic is more maddening than usual and the honks seem fitted with... Continue Reading →

Ma Wednesday- Of fathers and daughters.

Their bond is beyond the comprehension of a mere mother. Their love unique and bereft of unnecessary discipline and vexation. They laugh. And play. And cry. And scream.   Their games are common and petty, yet profoundly engaging. They make water puddles and paper houses. They make napkin monsters and cookie castles. Fruits become legos...

People say technology has eroded communal living. We are so busy being online that we fail to build meaningful, lasting friendships and relationships- they say. We apparently share too much with too many people. We are a compulsively exhibitionist, yet equally voyeuristic society. There are memes and cartoons of entire families sitting together in the...

Surprises our heads hide.

How would you feel if you woke up feeling different everyday? Not knowing if you wanted to wake up and burst forth and head to conquering all in sight, or cower and wilt and wither away to oblivion under a large rock. There are days when you want to shine bight like the corona. And... Continue Reading →

Beauteous, baseless, unreasonable joy.

“I can only note that the past is beautiful because one never realises an emotion at the time. It expands later, and thus we don't have complete emotions about the present, only about the past.” ― Virginia Woolf There are days such as these, where mundaneness begets joy. When the ordinary becomes cherished. When nothing... Continue Reading →

Friday Flutters- It creeps up again..

It come and goes. Waxes and wanes. Gathers and disperses. Blooms and withers.   The blinding light and the pitch black. The all- enchanting angel and the all- consuming demon. Both within. And without. Ripping apart. And making whole again.   The misery and ecstasy, bound irrevocably. Inseparable. The joy is superfluous. Reasonless. Beyond rationality.... Continue Reading →
