After a life-long love affair with ink and paper, I’ve finally decided to find the words for the things that are close to my heart. This beautiful country, the people in it, the allure of a home-cooked meal (shared with loved ones of course!) and the wonderful world of books are among these things. Over the years, it is through the words of others that I have gained access to a myriad of experiences, to ways of living. It is through these words that I have aspired to live a better life, a wholesome life, a more ethical life. It is through these words that I have learnt that everyone has a hidden story to tell, a life that is worth something. I hope you will enjoy my own small contribution to the words that we live by and to the experiences we can encounter through reading.
