End of an Era


The women’s March on Washington and beyond is the precursor to planned series of acts of ‘civil disobedience’ should the rights we have earned so far be reversed. We refuse to go away quietly. Indeed ‘the only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing’ (Edmund Burke). I hope you’ve all been keeping well, as have…

Process Goals


Hello everyone, it’s the New Year and everybody is talking about goals and goal setting. Having chosen a rather unconventional lifestyle since this past year, conventional or traditional goal-setting neither appeals nor applies to me at this point in my life journey. So I’ve come up with the concept of process goals, where instead of pursuing definite goals, I’m choosing…

While I stayed in London only for a while they stayed…

Chanel -Due Credit

Happy Birthday Mr. Grey!


It’s Saturday night. Sunday morning really, considering it’s past midnight. I’m sitting here in bed warm and cozy, typing away, listening to Sarah Mclachlan’s ‘In the arms of an angel’, one of my all-time favourite songs. My husband has dozed off next to me, breathing quietly. He must be exhausted, I think to myself. Earlier today, he was out taking…

Prague – 8 places to visit


Prague is often referred to as the golden city owing to its rich history and its many old buildings.

A Trump Presidency


With CNN News Channel in the background, I woke up, showered, had breakfast and got ready to walk out the door.

Colour your World


Nothing makes me happier than to see a little beauty in the world. The sighting of a well-dressed lady or gentleman is the simplest of joys for me; I usually try to convey my appreciation for the effort made by giving a nod and a smile. And if they are approachable, I’ll generally stop and compliment the lady, or ask…
