How many such sentences or truths can I write about myself within ten minutes? If you want to participateContinue reading “Day 4 – 10 Mins for 10 Days”

Day 1 & 2 – 10 Mins for 10 Days

I Lit A Candle for You Today

I’ve always been afraid of dying. Which is so strange, because its like being afraid of sunrises or sunsets. They are inevitable and might lead to something beautiful, and yet.

#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”
