Life as Real as Ice Cream

“Remember, people will judge you by your actions not your intentions. You may have a heart of gold but so does a hard-boiled egg.”                                                                                                                 Maya Angelou This is so true. It’s so easy to call on our intentions. And I am sure most of us have the best intentions most of the time. But... Continue Reading →


How I lost an argument & learned to make the best mini pancakes

I am intrigued by the rate at which we take in new things. I take myself as an example, the way I view every inkling of curiosity as a legitimate and worthy avenue of pursuit, from philosophy, to psychology, to nutrition, to spirituality ad nauseam treating every spare moment as a moment stolen to "learn" something....

Okay. I think I’m done with the article + singular noun title spree. I still have loads of “concepts” that I could go on about, but I feel like this was enough 🙂 At least for now. We are still in a cold spell with unseasonably chilly weather, but the sun is out and there... Continue Reading →

We both chuckled. It was a knowing chuckle. I... Continue Reading →

A Calm

“A photograph is a secret about a secret. The more it tells you the less you know.” Diane Arbus I think it’s fitting to start a post once in a while with an acknowledgement: I really enjoy working on this blog. It feels like a time-extending dimension that catches everything that overflows from life. A... Continue Reading →
