The stream gurgles to the symphony of a multitude of mating frogs. An idyllic place to get lost in your solitude. The crickets and katydids break into a…

Last week we were in the thriving, bio-diverse rainforests of Agumbe (in the Western Ghats of Southern India).

Global warming is more than real, folks. My outdoor nature jaunts and morning walks have come to a grinding halt. I miss…

Focussed & Flourishing – Word of the Year 2024

Focussed and Flourishing – My Word of the Year   Back in my cubby haven after almost 3 months. Boy! Does it feel good! ♥ I’m quarter late to the WOTY 2024 party. Yet, I believe, “better late than never.” A calendar is also a social construct that we create for ourselves, but what the heck, it does helps us stay focussed. Speaking of Focussed, that’s my WOTY 2024 and  Flourishing also chose to tag along. After all, when we…
