What is your adventure?

A late-night conversation brought this song to mind… No matter our biological age, we anticipate the future. Will it be good, will it be enough, will it fulfill or disappoint…?

When did you…?

The lunar new year has dawned…and the traditional celebration goes for 15 days. I anticipate another family gathering this week to mark the end of this festive period.

What I’m learning from astrology

A new year, and what will it have in store for us? Facebook has been showing me astrology posts for 2018… Why? Probably because my curiosity got the better of me at times and I clicked into these posts which purported to reveal my future. Sometimes they bring a smile as my heart gladdens at … Continue reading What I’m learning from astrology

Perhaps I … Continue reading Contemplating cooking…
