A beginning in An end

A beginning in An end

I started this year’s A to Z Challenge with the sentence: “Every ending is a new beginning.” In that post (Z end in Z beginning), I chose to make my version of the challenge Z to A. Today is the last day of this particular journey. In other words: I ... Read More

Voices

”“ Your inner voice is the voice of divinity. To hear it, we need to be in solitude, even in crowded places. A. R. Rahman Everyone has an opinion to offer. Whether a decision is potentially life altering, or as simple as what one’s favorite color is, everyone has an ... Read More

Another reason to watch what you eat

You there. Yeah you! The one on two legs. You know I made this all right? Everything here … I created it. And guess what. It only took me a couple of days. But don’t worry, of all the things I made, you are my favorite. As a matter of fact, I like you so ... Read More

Rules or thought?
