#10MINADAY Challenge – Day 12: An Ideal Day

If someone had asked me this question maybe just ten years ago – “What would your ideal day be like?, I would have had a very detailed and specific answer ready. But now, I feel that the word ‘ideal’ is an illusion. More of a fantastical notion than the word ‘fantasy’. So if you askContinue reading “#10MINADAY Challenge – Day 12: An Ideal Day”

Life Diaries and Reading Wrap Up – June 2021

March Musings – Why won’t women eat first?

I decided to write about women this month. If February is associated with love, then surely March is associated with talking about women right? It being International Women’s day and all?

Privilege (Definition): a special right, advantage, or immunity granted or available only to a particular person or group.
