Finding time

There is always time. " I have no time" is an excuse we make when we don't want to do something. We always got the time we need. I did not feel the urge to write, the past few months. Or to be honest, I felt the urge but could not be bothered to actually... Continue Reading →

Mindfulness

Long before it became a high- society fad, an old, grey haired, yoga teacher tried to instil this quality into my 17 year old self. I thought it sounded good, but dismissed it as something that old people do. Not sure why the idiot me thought that though. Being aware of one's internal self, and... Continue Reading →

Broody mornings.

It is 0433 hours. The early morn. The city has already began to stir. The morning runners have commenced their warm up, at the least. The construction industry is well and truly onto the workday. The morning shift nurses have to be at work in about an hour. The school buses would have been plying... Continue Reading →

Hello

Hella folks. Just popping in to say a quick hello. Thank you for the lovely congratulatory emails and wishes. It is comforting to know that some you folks actually consider me a friend even though we have never met or spoken in person. The internet can sometimes be a fantastic thing. The new little one...

Full circle.

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...

Weekend tittle tattle.

How are you folks? I'm in a bit of a chatty mood. Most days, when I'm at home I'm passed out cold somewhere. On the couch with the laptop dangling over the edge, or with my face squished into the pages of a poor book. In the guest bedroom, with half- folded laundry. On the... Continue Reading →

The pregnant, surgeon-in-training.

If you google 'pregnant resident' or 'pregnancy during surgical residency/ fellowship/ training', you will be privy to a select few articles that occasionally appear in mainstream media about this small, unique subset of working women. Even medical/ surgical journals occasionally like to amuse themselves by publishing articles such as : Pregnancy during residency: II. Obstetric... Continue Reading →

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 →

Inertia.

Lately, I have been thinking that I am stuck. Stuck in a rut. On a hamster wheel that obviously isn't going anywhere. It's odd though. If you asked me three years ago, where I'd like to be three years on- the current state of affairs would seem to be a great place to be in.... Continue Reading →

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 →
