Table for One

It is quite often that I am reminded of the fact that my youth was some time ago. It’s not anyone else who reminds me of this fact. I know it myself. There are the usual physical manifestations of the ageing process which we all know too well. Like many people, I have also succumbedContinue reading “Table for One”

Goodbye to Procrastination

Everyone in their lives is on their own journey of discovery – of things, people, places and ideas.  In trying to make sense of things, some people take longer than others.

I may not have any awesome aspirationsContinue reading “Mapping a Route to an Unknown Destination”

To be honest, although the months and years are obvious markers of the movement of time, I feel we should not get too fixated about measuring life against them.  IContinue reading “A New Perspective on the Old”
