First crushes are many

Do you know Pushkin? A famous Russian poet? Well, one of his friends (female) said something like this about him: poet absolutely has to be in love all the time. Otherwise, how can he be a poet… I am not a poet (not just a poet) but I am Gemini))). Yeah, I blame everything on star…

In Princessly Poor Choices Part 1 I tried to share my take on famous Disney Princesses and their love and life choices. Now, at 42 and being as jaded as I am, I see those beautiful girls in amazingly sparkling dresses and tiaras from a very different angle. Here is my take on more Princesses Ariel…

Status ‘single’

Reading through my facebook profile I noticed a funny thing: there is a tiny heart and word ‘single’ next to it. Heart. Single. I understand what it means, I am not that daft. However, what I am getting at is the fact that it is either my heart is single or I only have one heart…

The little things in life

Daily Prompt a while ago was My Precious. I missed out on writing a post then. I saw it again a few days ago. However, it did not hit my until today, walking to the office ‘yeah, right, I know what to write on that’. My precious could be anything or anyone. If we take the high…

The best and the worst of readers’ blocks

There is such a thing as Reader’s Block. Yeah, right. Everyone knows about writer’s block. But not many people know of readers’ problem and even less people care about it.
