The mad hunt

What makes man kill for pleasure ? I am thinking about this when I read about a medical professional killing one of the  rare species of lion in Africa. We, who take the pledge of preserving life, focus on just human lives and forget that we are to take care of other living beings too. …

The meaning of success by Ralph Waldo Emerson

I have been reading some and then some more. This morning I found a book and in it I found a small stanza of a poem by one of my favourite American poets of all time- Ralph Waldo Emerson. Since I have nothing original to say, I thought it would be good  to share words …

Now I Take It Easy


soul n spirit

images-3Gone are those days when I used to feel heat

Deadline coming near, my heart used to beat

I am much calmer and easy going now

Don’t succumb under pressure somehow 

I have run, done enough to prove my capabilities

Shown my talent, a  perfectionist, tested my abilities

Times have changed, pressure doesn’t kick me

I do things at my own pace, this is a new cool me 🙂

If there is a delay, all hell will not break lose

If I don’t meet the deadline, I will politely excuse

I will try my best to achieve my goal

But that would not become the sore

Surely not a question of life and death

I work best if I take interest

How I Drag Myself to the Gym

10 Years a Single Mom


I have always worked out.  The past ten years have been a challenge for me.  I would work out on and off, here and there.  Then came a 2 year period that I did not work out at all.  I ended that couch potato period of time a year ago when I started to really feel the effects of my age and my physically demanding job.  I would literally be in physical pain at the end of each shift.  I literally had a hard time walking.  I gained weight which is pretty easy to do when you are 49 and your metabolism has slowed to a crawl…..a very slow crawl  I felt awful…all the time.

I had every excuse in the book.  At the time, they didn’t feel like excuses…they felt more like reasons.  I was stressed out.  I was working two jobs.  I was too tired.  I didn’t have…
