Poetry: It’s Stupid, It’s Free

Ever since I returned home from my recent trip to India, I awaken at 3 every morning and stay awake for a good 45 minutes doing nothing. During this twilight insomnia sometimes I take a walk, or talk to friends and family in India. Last night however, I took a jab at poetry. And here’s…

Dealing today. Healing tomorrow.

People walk up to me and seem to repeat the same words over and over: I’m so sorry. And all I can find the courage to say back to them is: It’s okay. Here’s a confession: I’ve been lying. Because it’s not okay. A part of me died less than 72 hours ago. It’s gone forever,…

Thank you for June 22, 2013

On this beautiful morning of June 22nd, 2013, I’d like to thank the powers of the Universe for allowing me to feel and see the wonderful world that we are blessed with! In the past few months, in various ways, I have learnt that mornings are the best and most important part of one’s day….
