Winds of Change

According to traditional belief, because the symbols and mantras on prayer flags are sacred, they should be treated with respect. These flags are usually placed at a height, ideally at a doorframe. Tibetan prayer flags come in sets of five colors: blue, white, red, green, and yellow. Blue symbolizes the sky and space, white symbolizes…

900 Posts: A Hope For Peace

Let me start by saying thank you for patiently embarking on this journey with me. As I enter the 900+ club on this space, the easiest thing I have learnt in my life so far is to be grateful. Grateful for all things that happen, whether good or better only time can tell. This journey…

What's New(s)

I used to work for a local daily for a very brief span of my professional career as a sub-editor. Now most people don’t know the difference between a copy-ed and and sub-ed, and I will not take up this space to explain that. There are too many things happening around the world, which whether…

The Mountains Echoed

I am not a trekker, far from it. I am not averse to the idea of climbing mountains, but I prefer the activity when there are no seasoned trekkers in tow. You see, I suffer from intense fear of descents (not heights, but slopes and stairs), and climbers will never understand how gripping this fear…

Goodbye and Goodnight, 2019

What a mixed bag of a year you’ve been, 2019! I started the year with a rather silly accident, leaving me to nurse a 4-week injury that lasted for a good 11 months! The injury wasn’t all bad though, we managed to sneak in a week-long trip to Sri Lanka. Resolution unlocked! I eased off…

The Joy of Life!

Enjoying the last bit of the year, good or bad is probably one of the things we look forward to and prepare for well. The year 2019 hasn’t been the kindest, but I am grateful nonetheless to have endured and gracefully sailed through it. Here’s a toast to family, friends, feasts and a whole lot…

Minon Moments of Life!

Life happens to us at a blistering pace! My brother once explained this theory to me (I don’t know if he remembers this though) that made most sense to me than most things I’ve ever heard. He said, time flows at a standard pace: the bad times seems longer because we wait for it to…
