830 Posts: That’s a Wrap, 2018!

When I started this space in 2011, and in effect the post a day challenge, it took me 18 days to get stuff out from my drafts. I ended the year with 350 posts, and given the passage of time, this milestone of 800+ should’ve been crossed years ago. But posting everyday, with a picture…

So, two cheers for Democracy: one because it admits variety and two because it permits criticism. ~ E. M. Forster

Cake Time

I celebrated my 34th birthday earlier this month. Cakes are usually synonymous with the big day of the year. I’m at an age where I’m at my fittest and financially more stable, I am in a zone where I can bake my own cake and eat it too. It’s time to unleash the superhero within…
