An Epic Week Gone By:#MondayMusings

Last week was epic! It was a "heroic" week, so to speak. Grand and monumental in scale. A week that came with lot of unique experiences and also one that threw plenty of curve balls my way. I guess in totality the "good" and the "ugly" managed to balance each other pretty well, even though [...]

Celebrating Ma; My Shakti, My Warrior Queen: #MondayMusings

Celebrating Ma;  My Shakti, My Warrior Queen as you would have guessed is a sequel to this blog post from last week. It was written when my family and I were going through a truly testing time, amidst which; by God's grace, we were holding our ground and staying optimistic. It wasn't easy to stay that way, [...]

Ma: My Shakti, My Warrior Queen

This nebulous February afternoon, I realise my post “When the Going Gets Tough, The Tough Get Going”   was written with a divine purpose. Everything in life is synchronous. I do not believe in coincidences. That post probably spilled out of my being, so that it could be a reminder that was the only way to [...]

Weekend Gratitude: #MondayMusings

It's been a whirlwind couple of months, and the year has started on a bit of an unravelling note as  all of you who follow my blog will know. But then what about those countless blessings that pepper my life with the confetti of joy? How could I forget those and not list them out. [...]

Redemption: #FridayFictioneers

Ed and Jane had put all their life savings in erecting their two storey home. When typhoon  Katrina lashed their city,  their warm, cosy hearth was reduced to a dilapidated structure. The kids refused to live their anymore. They said it reminded them of that fateful day. But there was more to it than meets [...]

Wheels of Time: #FridayFictioneers

I have been off the loop for a while, yes. Multiple things occupying my mind space. I'm not planing to quit blogging! Heck no. 🙂 That's what keeps my sanity intact, you see. A few things need my attention more at this point of time, therefore the dwindling posts. Though I wrote Friday Fictioneers on [...]

When the Going Gets Tough, The Tough Get Going:#MondayMusings

"When the going gets tough, the tough get going." - Joseph P. Kennedy (1888-1969) These beautiful lines by Joseph P. Kennedy, Father of U.S. President John F.Kennedy, has been my mantra for life, for the longest I can even remember. Probably way back when I was in school. This quote speaks volumes, in such less [...]

Nurturing: #MondayMusings #WOTY

My #MondayMusings is late by a few days, but I'm traveling and I'm trying my best to be as "nurturing" as can be. After all that's the Word of the Year #WOTY for me.  The amazing, Corinne of Write Tribe suggested we all have a Word of the Year, and I thought it was a  brilliant idea. [...]

Bedazzled: #FridayFictioneers

"Hey Philipe! Guess what, the Art Fair is on this Sunday." "Date?” says Matt, rather mysteriously over the phone. It has been over a fortnight since they last spoke. Their squabbles had become way too frequent, so they were taking time away. Matt's call is rather unexpected. Philipe has missed Matt terribly, and is over the [...]

Dreamy December in Olaulim Backyards: #WanderlustWednesday

We took a pre-Christmas break, lazing at the dreamy Olaulim Backyards, in Goa. Olaulim Backyards is a quaint homestay, run by the warm, gracious couple; Savio and Pirkko. Savio is Goan while Pirkko originally hails from Finland. Though she has  lived in Goa now for many decades. They live in the Backyards with their two [...]
