So, I have a theory that while words are wonderful, there exist some concepts that are too big to be explained by words. The mere naming of them diminishes them. …

Let’s talk about the Universe — For a scientific man, only a scientific explanation will do.

Once, you and I woke up before dawn to see a comet streak across the sky.
It was the size of an orange for us to see; we joked that we would pluck it out of the sky and stick it in my school bag.

Today, I hear that you’ve…

A poem about moving on.

Having great trouble sleeping. Do you think, if I run away enough from closing my eyes? If I escape into another world It won’t catch me?

I know that within me the rain is constant. Even while I stand in the sunshine in the garden.

I almost envy the people…

I generally try not to spend too much money on buying books. Where I live, we have a lot of “Street libraries”, which are just awesome. One of my finds in these treasure boxes was “Scythe”(2016), written by Neal Shusterman.

Not going to lie; the distinctive cover art by Kevin…

Spring is a naive teenager, idealistic and up in your face. How much energy is required to overcome the inertia of the cold? She riots in the streets, hit by pepper to the eye, she radiates out warmth: thawing the snow off the ground with the best of intentions. …

And some need to be broken

Last week was our 11th Anniversary — It seems crazy how we have such a milestone considering who we are and what we went through to get here. We…

It seems it isn’t royalty or rank or status that will define the course of your life.
It doesn’t look like it’s education, knowledge or profession.

It isn’t the family you are born to which measures the love you are worth

When I live on the farm, I shall grow strong, corded musculature.

I have two big loves: Sci-fi and Film.

2020 finally gave me enough time to blend those two loves together and let’s say I binged away at a lot of Sci-fi. I love Sci-fi so much because the genre makes you think outside the constraints of general life. Some accepted…

YA is not my genre of choice, but this time, I found my match.

Lately, I have needed distraction and my chosen vice books, piles and piles of them. I don’t really have the brain space for real grown-up books, so I went in for a YA novel!

Recently I was handed a book by a friend, and she said: “Here’s one you might…
