Welcome to my blog. Here I discuss my life experiences and the fascinating people I meet along the way. I also document my adventures in writing, reading, and cooking. Hope you have a nice stay!



On a summer day, weighty

With heat, air

Moved only by the wings of 

Impervious dragon flies,

You taught me to build

A wall out of large

And irregular slabs of

Slate, grey and crusted white

With age, using

Cement mixed thick and clumpy.

The work was more intellectual

Than I had imagined, the pieces

Fitting together like an awkward

Puzzle. The progress was slow,

Steady and satisfying.

Now I build towers and

Walls and walkways of words,

Lessons learned.

To this day that first wall

Leans up hill and is

Still standing.
