It has been a time of slow, rambling walks over the now-rare remnants of the ancient Aravalli mountains, my Fido sniffing deep into the grass for stuff that his daydreams are made of and me finally living the dreams I had- of one day being able to get up and watch him play in the overgrown grass- dreams that kept me going when hope wasn't too thick on the ground.

Try and catch dreams, and they keep flying away. But pause, let your soul breathe, and they alight on you like a delicate butterfly... a touch of joy, more precious in its transience. How precious are those dreams that come alive when we least expect them to? I think, a lot, lot more than others!... Continue Reading →
You would love to support writers. Right? The most obvious way: Buy their books. But you can't buy all the books of every writer. Right again! Writers understand that too. They wouldn't want you to break your bank either, but of course they do need your love and support as a reader. Can that be... Continue Reading →
Imagery, simply put, is the use of words to recreate a world that is not only seen but felt deeply with all five senses and also produces an emotional response in the reader.
Hey beautiful people! How are you all doing? Life is rather topsy-turvy these days but I hope everything is settling well into what might pass as the new normal.
