Life’s Q & A

What’s life? Is life all about rain and sunshine? What’s life? Is life all made up of the tangible and its intangible nemesis? What’s life? Is life all about living one’s own truth, while, simultaneously, doing one’s best to abide the rules set by others? What’s life? Is life all about counting the decades whileContinue reading “Life’s Q & A”


Breathe, know that we can make it through this temporary setback; Breathe, know that this detour that we are facing is momentary; Breathe, know that life has its own will; And breathe, know that doing our best is the only way to obtain the ultimate peace and quiet.

Family Drama

Not only is family a place, where love fest takes place, it can also be a hub, in which dramas escalate and hatreds spread in silence. The multi-layered complexity, which exists in a familial environment, can never be underestimated and ignored, even if we want to, because the cliché solution, such as ignorance is bliss,Continue reading “Family Drama”

Blind Gossip

I discovered a Blind Gossip website yesterday. It is a celebrity gossip site that aims to expose and report, anonymously, the secret life of the rich and famous.

At times, what appears to be chaotic is in fact quite beautiful, if only we are willing enough to take a step back to observe the whole picture. What is considered to be chaotic is usually one of the manifestations ofContinue reading “Chaotic Beauties”

Self-contradictory Manner

Canadian TV personality, Cynthia Loyst, once said, “we live in a highly sexed society, yet we are so afraid of talking about sex.” Her statement sums up perfectly the contradictory nature of our world. Leading our lives in a self-contradictory manner is so exhausting. We know that it is exhausting. Then, why are we stillContinue reading “Self-contradictory Manner”

Dropping Off The Map

“Just thinking about you and wondering how you are doing…you kinda dropped off the map!” This is a Facebook message that I just received from the mom of a host family that I spent an entire summer with back in 1998 in southern California. It seems like a long time ago, yet the feelings andContinue reading “Dropping Off The Map”
