Down Memory Lane

4031 Page Court, Pleasanton, CA. We lived there, ages ago. It was a cul de sac, and our neighbors were Bob, and his wife whose name I’ve forgotten except that it began with an M (I think). No wait, her name was Fran. Whatever, I was close. They were ancient, and when Bob died my … Continue reading

Vent. Skip post.

Hardest thing in the world is to  let things be. Women are naturally vindictive. In anger, we tend to claw and maul and scream at whatever caused the pain and then dissolve like sea salt once the violent spell is over. Or maybe thats just me.

Oh dear God…I don’t know what to do. Should I pray for children? Or should I not pray for children? What in God’s name should a girl who’s not particularly fond of kids do? A few days ago, I, my mum and my cousin along with her two children went shopping for chooriyan. Yes, I … Continue reading
