I’ve always had a fascination with fountains: the hypnotic movement of the water, the meditative sound of the splashes. I remember many happy moments as a child running around fountains. Continue reading “Dance of the Waterfall”
I am not an oats hater, as many of my friends & family are, so it is easy for me to enjoy the benefits of this grain. Continue reading “Superfood #4 : Oats”
Who bears witness to my blogging?
My family, of course.
I bounce ideas off Older Daughter for the Photo & Discover Challenges, ask for her consultation when I want to put across an idea, thought or feeling, but feel stuck.
Loving Husband gives almost immediate feedback when a post is published, and typically, is the first to “Like” it or Comment.
Younger Daughter is keeps me on my toes. She will ask “What is your next post about, Mom?” when too much time passes between posts.
Some evenings will find us huddled in the same room, all on devices of some kind doing various things. In this is a strange sense of camaraderie as I write on.
A run route designed to find my pic for Daily Post’s Weekly Photo Challenge, One Love. “Love” by Robert Indiana, found between Lanson Place & Winsland House II, Singapore.
As Easter approaches, I am reminded of John 3:16: “For God so love the world that he gave his one & only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”
It’s Dragonfruit season! and hence, I am a recipient of several of these beautiful fruit!
I am not a fan of the Dragonfruit … at least not before this recent encounter. The fruit always seemed like a pale reflection of the kiwifruit. I liked the texture of the flesh with the crunchy seeds, but found it mostly tasteless. It was not a fruit I would pick up at the fruit counter, or at a buffet.

Modern Music? No thank you, would have been my response before today. I am a Baroque Fangirl through and through. Okay, maybe a little classical and a smattering of Romantic is fine as well. But apart from film music (I love John Williams & Howard Shore), any music written for orchestra or chamber groups after the 1900s would not hold much appeal for me.
I have spent the last few days mulling over what photograph I would take to capture the idea of Harmony. Spoke to Older Daughter, threw some some ideas about, had some good leads but the opportunity to take those photos were not forthcoming. Continue reading “Harmony: Modern Living amidst Nature”
This is written in response to Daily Post’s Daily Prompt, Longing
There are times in my life when I feel an inexplicable sense that something isn’t quite right in the universe, a longing for something that I can’t articulate; this is a feeling that Loving Husband has termed my “existential loneliness”. In these instances, the one thing that I turn to which helps soothe the persistent ache is music. Continue reading “Music soothes Longing”
