MIA: Me

It’s been a while since I’ve written anything creative, anything beyond work manuals and emails. Perhaps a haiku here and there, but the passion I once felt for it – the feeling that it was the most natural thing in the world to do… has left me. There was a time in my life where […]

Doppelgänger

Some days back my friend shared a photo with me.  I didn’t understand at first why she had done so until her sister sharply pointed out: That’s you! The photo in question was of my friend’s sister’s friend’s grandmother… you follow that? In 1940.     The gal in question is the total babe on […]
