Snippets of Life (from A to Z) “F”

THE LETTER "F" F orever forging forward, dragging everything and everyone along in her wake, as unwittingly flew towards the finishing line. Fearless, feral, funny, and viscerally loyal. She understood from an early age her function in life. She was the sun, with friends, family and potential partners revolving around her. At least that is …

Snippets of Life (from A to Z) “E”

THE LETTER "E" Encircled by an ocean of green, our house emerges from the treetops, ephemeral and effortlessly floating above the forested valley. Encompassing us are layers of hills backed by densely wooded mountains, followed by menacing craggy rock, ending in majestic snowy peaks. The exquisite beauty of the Julian Pre-Alps. For now, we enjoy …

Snippets of Life (from A to Z) “C”

THE LETTER "C" Cross legged and cozy in a corner of my closet, I compose and choreograph compelling encounters for the charming, cool and clever me, that needs coaxing out.

As is the case most times, the significant aha moments in …

Snippets of Life (from A to Z) “T”

THE LETTER "T" Thin as a twig and touchingly pale; the timeless trademarks that elicit tenderness. Tirelessly she tried to come towards me, as I tirelessly strode away. Too many years apart and two disparate trajectories were the trouble. She was tremendously tenacious, and though terribly flattered, I couldn’t tolerate being tailed twenty-four seven. Terrible …

Snippets of Life (from A to Z) “G”

THE LETTER "G" Governing the night were: gritty interiors, grimy toilets, great music, gutsy performances, gargantuan gin and tonics, good friends with garish hair and gregarious strangers sporting equally gaudy dos. Exercise was gyrating and grinding on the dance floor or aerobicizing in the gym. Guzzling life was our mantra. Stir and repeat. Great times …
