Life always takes us by surprise doesn’t it? Just when you think you have it all managed or just when you’re about to give up, things change.

Change… the only other certainty about life besides death. The way the future is perceived is always changing too. The future looks to be like this now and then years down the road, when I look at the future beyond, it’s different than what my younger self would have envisioned.

Looking back to when I started this blog and where I am now, my perspective on so many things have changed. I have slowed down, not because I’m old or unable, but because I have finally understood how to stop and smell the roses. It’s not just about taking a sniff and then moving on, as my younger self thought.

Over the years, I have seen that the concept of coincidence is really just a superstition of sorts. Everything that is experienced in life teaches you something. Whether you learn the lesson right then, or it’s a lesson that falls into place down the road – it’s a lesson whether you know it or not.

Hindsight brings much value to decisions yet to be made. But even the knowledge that hindsight uncovers a week after an event, a year after, or a decade after varies… such are the beautiful intricacies of life, don’t you think?



It is always most difficult to start. I’ve wanted to do this for a while now. I used to have a website but then it became outdated and I told myself that I would get a blog soon. But I never did. Didn’t have the time. Too much work. Got married. Had a kid. Had other priorities. But now it is time to change all of that. I am back at square one but it’s ok because it’s time for a new beginning and because…I can. I’ll start with publishing some poetry I wrote some time ago. About love mostly. But also about life. And then I’ll take it from there. See where it leads… more poetry… short stories… perhaps even a novel…
