So, I got a lot of positive comments on Facebook for my writing. One comment even said that I should write a book… I am not sure that I can write a book but maybe start with a short story. Here is the beginning of one: “So, let us start the story of the protagonist’s life who is called John…

I have an urge to make stuffed peppers. It is not often that I crave a particular food but yet here it is — the craving out of the blue. I never cooked stuffed peppers before but found a good recipe to try out. I imagine it would be like my borsch which demanded a lot of practice. It took…

Down day today. Covid is getting to me finally. I was ok with that for the most part because I am a loner by nature and totally OK without human interactions but as we move through I found that I missed physical contact. I am a hugger. I need to hug people. It is one of the ways to develop…

Not much to post today. As I walked today I told every dog owner we passed by that their dog is cute. I think I made their day just as mine would be made if someone told me my dog is cute. Which of course he is. I would even go further and say he is beautiful. Which he is.…

I woke up today with anxiety about yet another same day. Sometimes I feel like I am stuck forever in Groundhog Day. This feeling has been persistent for some time. I took a week off work. It should be great, right? But for the first time in my life, I wish I was at work to break out the monotony…

Well, 2020 is here. Next decade in progress. Big expectations? I don’t like to set goals for new years. You should not have to wait until new years eve to set them. They should be a part of your normal life. If I do set a goal it is only one. This way it is actually achievable. For me anyway.…

As this year quickly moving to its end I cannot help but reflect on it. My mom passed away and it was a big one. It made me realize just how fragile life is and just how fast the time flies. Now that I am just three years away from turning fifty I have this awful fear of my own mortality…

The sun is shining and all is good again. I hate April (and Spring in general). As nature getting ready for a full bloom and everything is changing to green color and flowers are starting to open up your expectation is that your life will also change. Not a chance. Although there are small things that you can adjust to…

I haven’t written for a while because I was trying to finish up my graduate degree. Now that it’s over and I passed comprehensive exams (which I have to say I am proud of) the writing starts again. Writing is a curious thing as when you stop for a while it is harder to start again on a specific note or…
