Change of strategies

Whenever we encounter any worry at home, I always feel this overwhelming need to solve it for the family. I don’t like them worrying. I don’t want any discord at home over something. Yesterday, because of the raging storm, we realized that the roof is now a bit rotten. It needs to be replaced. Instead […]

Dust and all that.

I’ve been going back and forth between staying put in the house we’ve been living in for the past three decades and moving out to relocate somewhere else. When it’s sunny and the neighbors are cooperating (read: peaceful and quiet), I want to stay put. We have a modest home and I know with revonations […]

Inner peace

I am opinionated. That much I will admit. I tend to notice the tiniest things and it annoys me most of the time. That’s who I am. But the past couple of days, I realize that ignoring some stuff happening around me can lead to inner peace. I am calmer and happier when I let […]
