Welcome to

Diplomacy, flattery, sarcasm, mind games, pretense, suspicion back biting etc.

What would a conversation without any of this feel like?

Problems sometimes are likes codes that needs to be cracked, the process can be difficult and even painful but the solutions can be surprising simple. This is something that I have experienced in recent times. A reminder that the power of simple thinking should not be underestimated and seemingly complex issues can have the simplest of answers.

After all the chaos, suffering, somewhat sleepless nights and ill health, the process of problem solving yielded a simple solution at a point when escape had become an option. I am glad I did not. I am a sucker for simplicity and it has not failed me as always.

But then there were times when in the midst of trying to understand one situation, I was faced with deeper dilemmas, issues I still don't have answers to. Moments like these felt as though you want to scream but you are choked or even worst you have lost your voice. This I know is more to do with the inability to honestly express myself, even to people I am close to. I know I need some help, maybe it is time to seek it.

The Wall

She looked through the small hole in the brick wall probably for the last time. This hole had been her only gateway to the world beyond for years. She grew up behind this wall learning all that she knew which was good enough for her to survive in her world. It was safe but not without some conflict. She was happy most of the time but the unhappy ones were agonizing. She often questioned the world that existed outside the wall that is all she did, question. She had decided.

She placed the brick back inside the hole. The wall was complete. She stepped back and admired it, her friend who had taught her much and whom she would miss. She was not sure if she would ever come back. Deep down she felt she would return home sometime, after all, she was not destroying it. She was relived.

She knew she would still be herself and something more. To begin with she was willing to cry.

Tug of War

You can win and still loose
You can loose and still win

The dilemmas of decision making.

One of those moments when you don't feel anything

No emotion


You can think

You can work

But you just stare

Looking blank

Active in your thoughts

You wonder

What if mirrors could show you what's inside you?

Your thoughts, feelings emotions

But they don't

Then what can?

You believe something can

Someone who loves you

Loves you enough to care to see

And show

That someone can be anyone

Or it can just be you.

Mind - the muse

A new project

Portrayal of individual objects with a subtle, but a thought provoking twist

Globe, mirror, clock, measuring tape, pencil, remote, chair, knife, calendar, candles etc

An exercise and an endeavor to develop the much needed technical skills

Something clear, direct, clean, simple and fun!
