One more year is ending, which is my favourite time of every year. It’s my personal Thanksgiving period, the last ten days of the year. It’s the time I recap the past 355 days and make tentative plans for the next 355 days. But this year has been special because the last time I learned so many things, not necessarily new, must have been at high school, which was quite a while back. Continue reading A glance back at a year full of lessons
I haven’t been around for a while now and that’s putting it mildly but it’s been a very busy time for me professionally. I hope this would change in the near future and I hope there would be things to write about but right now, I’m just popping in for book-peddling purposes.
My publishers and I are doing a promotion for The Dreamer as befits holiday season, giving away free copies of the e-book to everyone looking for something to read in these, yet again, trying times. The process is so simple even I can understand it so you really have no excuse for not taking advantage of this gloriously unique reading opportunity.
P.S. I do need to work on my marketing lingo, I know. Happy holidays to everyone and I’ll see you next year!
Primary school children went back to school this week, I had a chance to channel my inner Philip Marlow, and authorities removed the blinking green signal of traffic lights. Quite a busy week. Continue reading A Profound Look Back at the Week: November 8-14
Instead of writing, I’ll be celebrating autumn this week with images. Enjoy. Continue reading A Profound Look Back at the Week: November 1-7
That the past twenty or so months have been hard on everyone except billionaires, who got richer, is hardly news. I guess many of us didn’t know exactly how hard these months will be and perhaps only the best among us, pessimism experts, foresaw how long the hard part will last. What was news to me, was just how deep you could descend into the pit of pessimism. Continue reading A Profound Look at the Future
Did you know where the phrase ‘fair warning’ comes from? I didn’t but I learned it this week along with other fascinating things such as that we urgently need actual zombies because we can’t even do an apocalypse right. Continue reading A Profound Look Back at the Week: October 18-24
A week of clouds, rain, chill, and leaves turning red, yellow and everything in between. Peak autumn. Not so peak happy me because life keeps interfering but that’s its job, isn’t it? Continue reading A Profound Look Back at the Week: October 11-17
It has been a week of adulting and learning new things, and making plans, and spending a fortune on pharmaceutical produce because it’s the season for propping up the body’s defences against whatever lurks in the air. All in all, I’ve had worse. Continue reading A Profound Look Back at the Week: October 4-10
With September melting into October normality is returning. To my life, that is, not to the world. That train, in the immortal words of Jason Stackhouse, has sailed. Continue reading A Profound Look Back at the Week: September 27 – October 3
The closer we get to October the happier I normally am. This year there have been interruptions to my growing happiness but I try to be wise about them. After all, many people real-life all the time and not only sporadically like me. It’s all fine, I’m sure and I will have the chance to settle into my usual routine sooner or later. Adulting is okay for a while but not constantly. Continue reading A Profound Look Back at the Week: September 20-26
