If I could do it again

We went to visit a school yesterday, to enquire about for my three year old nephew. And memories from the horrors of my own school time came back. Those school years weren’t that horrible, but the kid-me surely felt them that way. My shyness, my self-consciousness, and to top it all, not feeling comfortable in… Continue reading If I could do it again

The ancient sundials and clocks were made based on Sun’s movements.… Continue reading Who invented the word Routine?

Roses – Music

        Some songs are perfect - lyrics, music, voice of the singer. Everything. It speaks to you, touches your heart in a way that you cannot describe!       What I do is not just write the lyrics, I write what and how the song means to me.. I just have to write it down,… Continue reading Roses – Music
