Turn Back Time

Today was a special day I didn’t really keep a tab on. My blog account turned 11 today! This account has been around only since 2011. You can find my poor, oft neglected first blog here. I love my virtual space: it shows me how much I have grown in thought and words. If I…

Tyger, Tyger

Tyger Tyger, burning bright, In the forests of the night; What immortal hand or eye, Could frame thy fearful symmetry? In what distant deeps or skies. Burnt the fire of thine eyes?On what wings dare he aspire?What the hand, dare seize the fire?

I didn’t actually know about iguanas, before I watched the episode “A Fish Called Selma” from season 19 of The Simpsons.
