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…

Light Headed

Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that. ~Martin Luther King, Jr.

50 Shades of Pink

Pink ~Aerosmith Pink it’s my new obsession Pink it’s not even a question Pink on the lips of your lover, ‘Cause pink is the love you discover Pink as the bing on your cherry Pink ’cause you are so very Pink it’s the color of passion ‘Cause today it just goes with the fashion Pink…

Stray Love

There is something about love that transcends words. Take music for instance; even without words it makes us feel things. Have you had friends who don’t speak in the same tongue as you do? Coming from the land of 18 major spoken languages with over 1600 regional dialects for company, I still get a lot…

500 Posts: Thank You for All the Love

I must confess, for a blog that has been around since January 2011, I should’ve made it to this milestone ages ago. But better late than never, right? As I look back on my journey to 500, it wouldn’t have been possible with all the people in my life, the food that I love, the…

And The Wedding Bells Ring…

Happily-forever-afters are what everyone yearns for. While there are no guarantees in life, there is nothing more moving than seeing two people in love, making promises for each others happiness. Although we cannot expect happiness from another unless we choose it for ourselves, to promise another that one wouldn’t cause his partner despair either is…

Fairytales, Romances, and Forever-afters

To love unconditionally and feel loved in return is possibly what everyone yearns for in the world. Some look for solace in food, some in money, some in success, and others in people. Every experience we have is for a definite purpose, and for that purpose to make sense, we should be perceptive, and learn…

To Dad, With Love…

I don’t know if you would’ve made any of the wrongs, right. But instead of guessing, I’d have liked to have found out in person… I miss you dad, and I will always love you… RIP!

Valentine Love

Two days too late, but I’ll post a Image ¬†for the day of love anyway. Most of us crave that first morning cup of coffee. Whether its true love or a habit that refuses to go away, well that is a very personal call. So here is my ode to the lovely cup that helps…

A Candle In The Wind

Its been 23 years since my father passed away, and as children, we have grown through phases of realization with difficulty. From being a 3-year-old child who didn’t understand what it meant to be orphaned, to being a full-grown married young woman, I now know the full extent of how my mother survived. It wasn’t…
