The End…Of The Year


Not quite there yet. Today is just the 30th. It’s funny how we devise a year – and celebrate its end and beginning at the same time. Nothing can end without something beginning at the same time. And the other way around too. This concept of the year – we know it exists in our […]

 I don’t know how. But I was just playing around with a few photos I took last week…it’s amazing how an image can just transform itself in your eyes. It reminds me of us. The human species. How we transform. At the touch of an emotional button. Into werewolf monsters preying on desire and living […]

Just to lighten up the dreary starkness of this blog, here’s a little blue flower peeping out, wondering about the year to come.

Day turns into the corners of my mind,Tuning to the whispers of its underground. A tramp was I. Passing lit corners untouched.

Peeping into the Past. Or Whereabouts.


I had the most delicious weekend. The sort of weekend that leaves you gooey inside, like molten cheese and chocolate. That reminds you that happiness is really within reach. That there can be wonderful people who can enrich your moments. Who can turn those moments into life. Among the many moments this weekend provided, one […]
