    A Flower bloomed outside my gate I stopped to marvel it’s beauty, it’s poise And click a picture while at it Stepped in my car and sped off to a new adventure at the vegetable cart Watermelons, papayas,bananas abound Oh dear! Mangoes nowhere to be found Loaded bags with supplies for the week start I stepped out of the car to greet a shock The Flower was gone Oh! Life so short! It just bloomed this morning! Who could be so ruthless to pluck it so early Why are men so selfish !! Then as if the flower spoke to me The purpose of my life is to bloom and…

    The Story of Perfectly Imperfect Scores

    After Homeschooling for about 3 years, Yog decided to join school 4 months ago towards the end of the current academic year. Since the first day of school, he has been loving it. The first day of school, he sat through a science assessment. and scored 3.5 out of 5. He was thrilled that he knew most of the answers. Right after he got home, he told me about it with glint of pride in his eyes. I couldn’t help but marvel at how easily he transitioned from a no assessment zone to writing assessments and being proud of them! Two months into the academic year, we were seeing final…

    Fear is our Strength

    From earning her money to making her own food, Toyna has grown so fast that I sometimes have to look at my old blogs just to remind me of her childhood. Like any mother, I feel immense pride at seeing her unfurl her wings and set out to fly. Yet, at the same time, I fear for her safety. What if she flies too fast, too far? What if there is a predator out there? What if she loses her way? What if… Like any parent, I would love to keep my child close to me and shield her from harm. But then fate taught me one of the biggest…

    The House that we Live In

    If you are a Middle Class individual residing in the same house for over an year, you will relate to this. I can’t say when it all started but I can look back at least a month and know that something is wrong with my home. It is like there is a bad energy shadowing our home and impacting everything in it. I hear cats crying early in the morning and I see bird poop littering my beautiful veranda. I see spiders crawling my walls and ants running across my kitchen counter. If the creepy crawlers are not enough, our toilets and taps are leaking, and there is a flood…

    Lost Love

    You were the first thing that made my morning You were the reason for my smile in the evening You were the balm for my splitting headache You were also the perfect company when I wanted to be alone   You made my presentations better You got my friends together You pushed me to never give up With you, I always felt and alert   But then, we parted ways For better or for worse, who knows My headaches have returned My mood swings keep me busy   My heart knows, you can always make things better But my mind refuses to see the sight of you I have never…

    My Offer to You

    I do not offer anything to anyone But simply, a part of me   All that I know, I do not preach Cause there is nothing I know that hasn’t been said already   All that I do, I do not share Cause I do that for no one else but me   All that I have, I do not tell Cause it is not mine for eternity   All that I love, I do not pride Cause I know I can love much more   All that I donate, I do not boast Cause there are so many more in need   All that I write, I do not…

    Door Signs

      Door signs become an important part of defining ourselves as we create our own space in life. Since some years now, Toyna has been hanging notes outside her room door. These signs often reflect her state of thought, action and mind. Sometimes the signs state rules of how to behave in her room and sometimes these are just fun things that she likes. Recently, Yog decided that he ought to have some rules for his room too. In order to emulate his sister, he kept searching for nice stickies to put on his door. But he managed to scavenge only a few small stickies as seen in the picture…
