A Day In Kathmandu
I should have left my senses behind.So many colours even the rainbow will pale,So many scents seducing the unsuspecting desires, So many motorbikes ridden with reckless gleeSo many temples even omnipresence is pushed,So many gods, Shiva, Vishnu, Parvati, the whole crews in town,So many Buddas, Siddhārtha Gautama is relegated to division two,So much traffic making … Continue reading A Day In Kathmandu

First let me deal with the questions. No, it was not about you so, rest easy and know you both are still in my good … Continue reading I wrote a poem

Dear Pogue, I’ve been doing a lot of reading and thinking around mental health in the last two weeks. I introduced the subject in a previous Musing when I made mention of the evidence now supporting the effects of Social Media on teenagers over the last 10 years. This is now a well researched subject … Continue reading Monday Musing
