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. Celebratory it may be, I do not mark time with festive seasons, whether they be Christmases or new years or lunar new years. Oddly, not birthdays either.… Continue reading When did you…?

To say goodbyes

To say goodbyes I learned to say goodbyes quick and short with a cheery countenance, Refusing to dwell in the heartbreaks each farewell always bring.

I hope, but I don’t think so?

Hope keeps… Continue reading I hope, but I don’t think so?
