In Concerto 

As i switched on the music , the sound of the piano spoke to my soul. I felt at one with the music. Each note whispered to me , whispers full of promises , whispers full of hope , whispers that gave me goosebumps , whispers that stirred my soul.  I was lost in a world…

Pigtails and Popsicles 

The little girl that i once was , spent many a hot sunny day after school , all dressed in her school uniform , hair tied into little pigtails , treating herself to popsicles and beating the summer heat. Ice pops have been a huge highlight of my childhood , as I presume might be…

 My Mission Statement 

   A Mission Statement is a statement that describes one’s core values. It describes what one wants to achieve , the person one strives to be. It helps people to find a reason to exist, it helps to find a meaning, a focus. It inspires you to be more than you are. When we were…

As the curtain falls

When i think of sourdough bread , i think of cozy hygge. I think of those petit little Parisian cafés by the banks of the Siene river with that aroma of their freshly baked crusty bread in the morning lingering in the air spreading across the streets as you walk past them. Their shelves filled…

Where to next ? 

And i quote ” Travel far enough , you find yourself” Travelling sets you free , it turns you into a story teller, an adventurer, a wanderer. Travel to me is one of the best ways of spending the very limited time we have been gifted with on this earth. Going to places and wandering…

The whiff of creation 

Food, the amalgamation of various different ingredients which coalasce to form something new and beautiful. Food has been an integral part of my growing up. My grandmother was one of those pioneering home cooks , who made the most exotic foods long before this part of the world even knew of them. She was the…

Lost and found 

It was like a veil lifted off of me , I could suddenly see the world , the way it actually is and not how it is in my head. There are certain situations and things in life that  change the way you are. It takes over and changes the way you think or see…
