The gold-brown granules part ways as the bare foot sinks in their midst. The sharp, swift-cutting echo breaks the silence, just like the hiker's stiff leather boot presses down on the discarded twig. The muffled tread of the dark-dwellers thuds in almost unheard thumps on the rooftops stained by chimney-smoke and rainwater. The somewhat downtrodden... Continue Reading →


She Is ( Just a Child)

She is a little girl playing football with the boys on the streets of Rio de Janeiro. She is a child playing 'house' with her cousins in the garden behind her house.

Why Food Inspires Me

Good evening, dear reader. Has it been a magical day for you? I do hope it has, because it is essential that you feel its positive vibes coursing through your veins and flooding them with swirls of rainbow, sand and surf. If not, I sympathize.

Anyway, since... Continue Reading →

Today's Midnight Memories post is going to focus on nostalgic moments of childhood.... Continue Reading →

An Excerpt: Cosmic Madness

Dear reader,  Hello. It has been precisely a month since I went on hiatus due to academic reasons. I shall probably do the same this month owing to preparation for entrance exams. I have, however, decided to post an excerpt from a story I'm writing and I would be very pleased to receive some critique from... Continue Reading →
