Scaling Walls

By now, you would have gathered that I am not the athletic type. Yet, in a serendipitous trip to the air force grounds on Saturday for its Open House, I did something there which left me feeling surprisingly satisfied. It was an achievement of sorts, for scaling any wall, even real ones, can make one… Read More ›

How Life Is A Lot Like Coffee

I rarely do this, posting a link which constitutes an entire post. There are slight didactic undertones here, but the content, like the coffee in a cup, is what matters more. If you’d had a rough day, a tiring day, this might help. How Life Is A Lot Like Coffee. Please click. Thanks. Your thoughts? … Read More ›

God’s Incidences (Coincidences)

One person’s coincidence (merely being in the right place at the right time) could be, for you, a “God incident”, orchestrated by the Father to enrich and enable you in your journey of life. A couple of mornings ago, I met… Read More ›

Running in the Family

For a change, the evening run was moved to East Coast Park. The route was a literally straightforward 7 km run. All day, I looked forward to it, the thought of running by the sea with my pals on a flat path, no elevations and hard climbs, and a good dinner after. It was going… Read More ›

Why There’s A Wolf At My Door

In one word, Polyvore. When I should be writing in this space, I am instead “playing at paper dolls” online, as The New Yorker magazine describes what users do on this style site, cutting and pasting and being fashion editor when I should just be—an editor.

A Seachange

It’s been a long time comin’, but I know a change gonna come, sang soul singer Sam Cooke in 1963. It only lasted 10 days. . .  but in that short span of eternity, the Internet–its various news and video channels, blogosphere, and social media–became a hotbed of news which seemed to stream in by… Read More ›
