Unpublished

Saved 5 years ago 'Getting a driving licence in Qatar' and other such mundane matters. I receive a whatsapp message this morning. The generic, forward kind. The kind you get from a chronic offender of the inpardonable sin of sending unamusing, irrelevant, inane forwarded messages that no one reads. This one read.. Virtually nothing is...

A confession and a comeback.

Let me get things going with a confession- I have been writing elsewhere and this blog has been wilfully neglected. Repatriation has re- instilled the need for privacy and stealth. I now prefer to pen my thoughts under the cloak of internet obscurity. The paranoia was bestirred by patients looking me up; and was further... Continue Reading →

Mere mortals

I often think of mortality. Mine and of others. Death is to me, the most fascinating. If I were a more curious woman, I would spend my life researching death. The faithful tell me that it is the lack of faith in me that fuels my enchantment with human exit. Is it though? Does the... Continue Reading →

Hubris and surgery

Laying yourself on a table. In the barest of garbs. Under the harshest lights, that which reveals every wrinkle, freckle and mole. With half a dozen cloaked and masked strangers milling about, partially disrobing you while sticking and prodding. A hand which politely smothers you with oxygen, no less. It is hard to fathom the...

The Obsessed.

“Don't bend; don't water it down; don't try to make it logical; don't edit your own soul according to the fashion. Rather, follow your most intense obsessions mercilessly.” ― Franz Kafka The problem with mercilessly following our intense obsessions is the relationships that we leave on the wayside. The fun- times that we discard at... Continue Reading →

Back to base

Surprises, change and death are probably the only constants in life. I was pleasantly surprised when folks I have never met, asked about my wellbeing and said they missed the written word of this wandering mind. I'm thankful, and yes; a little jiggered. Anyhoo, thank you once again to the faceless email-ers. I would like... Continue Reading →

On friendships. And yes, HELLO AGAIN!

Well, well, well. Look who’s here. It’s been a hot minute since I have last been here. I even let my domain expire, for a while. With the “big move” and children and a new job; not to mention being a single parent (albeit temporary)- somethings had to be allowed to slide.  I missed this... Continue Reading →

Life and lifting

I. AM. OBSESSED. Before we get into the specifics, read about my physical pursuits here and here or just click on the Runday Monday link above. I have been seriously "lifting" since my second born was about 14 weeks. 8 months and counting now. The sheer physicality of moving heavy things around never appealed to me before....

Finding time

There is always time. " I have no time" is an excuse we make when we don't want to do something. We always got the time we need. I did not feel the urge to write, the past few months. Or to be honest, I felt the urge but could not be bothered to actually... Continue Reading →
