It is early in the morning. The kids are still asleep. It is one of those rare weekend mornings when I have the house to myself and nothing on my agenda, not even making breakfast. The air is chill, in the upper fifties. I am walking around in a gray faded capris and a much-loved […]

In The Blink Of An Eye

Reading her email brought forth a rush of memories about my early days as a blogger when awards were plentiful and there was sincere joy in flaunting and passing on the baton.

What’s on your fridge?

Preeti Shenoy had this post on her blog a while ago which captured my attention and I have been wanting to do this for a while now. Finally found the time to take a picture and upload. Like Preeti says, fridges do have character. Every time am at a friend’s place, I am fascinated by […]

It’s a love story and it refuses to let go

There are some songs that get stuck in your head and go on an endless loop. Some are silly, some mushy and some meaningless. Something about the music haunts you inside. The harder you try to ‘not’ hum inside, the worse it gets. In that category is this song below. It refuses to get out […]
