“And I says to her, I like people, ya know? Not in-de-vedge-you-ally, but in the background. I enjoy seeing ’em in the evenings, it’s nice to see couples walking around, kids with their parents. Now, when it comes to large gatherings, you’ll never see me there! I always say that I’m sick and coming down … More Tea with Beatrice
The sweet, heady smell of mangoes filled her up with a lazy kind of joy. Droplets of sweat were taking root in the crevices of her body. She lifted her face to gaze at the lithe morning sky, burning with the anticipation of something that she could not quite fathom. She took a sip of … More Summer Slumber
“Run!” she cried. “Run!” Gunshots. She woke up in a cold sweat, shivering. “Hey honey.” “Hey dad.” “You look tired.” “Yeah. I had a nightmare again.” “The same one?” “Yeah.” She trembled involuntarily. “Where’s mom?” “Still sleeping. So is your brother.” She looked out the window.

Hello!

There are these mini stray cats with their momma who come to whine … More Photo Dump with Frens

These are a few songs I put together that I think sound so good on a rainy day. What are your favorite songs to … More Rainy Day Playlist
Hedy, I think this sorta worked out? I was feeling rather whimsical today morning, so after making the Mother’s Day card that I forgot to make, I started doodling with some watercolor. This is ze result. Does it work?
Bleaaaargh. What a dull title. I happened to be foraging through Netflix for a movie to watch yesterday and I came upon the much beloved title of Om Shanti Om. I gasped and once I had overcome my shock, I screemed in exhilaration. (melodramatic much, woman?) I was very very Very happy to see that … More Memories (Part II)
POV: You’ve just finished Anna Karenina and you wonder if it would have been any different in the original language. Not a very interesting point of view, but it is mine so bear with me. I’m learning the Russian language! And I can’t remember half of the words that I learnt today. I was planning … More POV: Am I a glonk?
