I love the night, especially quiet ones like tonight. It is so still that I can almost hear the dialogues I have with myself in my head. Carpe noctem. I wondered why I didn’t get off the car tonight. Because I cared. And maybe a little too much. Oh well. I enjoyed going out tonight, it was nice to see people, friends, acquaintances. It...Comments 0
Coping with Anxiety Attacks
I had an anxiety attack yesterday. It happened out of nowhere and for no apparent reason.

Om and Away to Island Yoga
My first yoga retreat with Om and Away to the beautiful and tranquil Island Yoga in Koh Yao Noi, an island nestled equidistant from Phuket and Krabi.

Cigarettes and whisky The perfect concoction for the keeping the lonely at bay The lady sways to the infectious melody as the jazz band plays Savouring the make-believe world her closed eyes brings her to With every inhale, she throws her head back She ruffles her hair on her face and sniffs the remnants on her fingers Scents always have a way of bringing...
