Life goals?

For Daily Prompt - Ballerina Fireman Astronaut Movie Star When you were 10, what did you want to be when you grew up? What are you now? Are the two connected? I always wanted to be a pilot and I loved and still love jet planes but I couldn't become one. I couldn't fight and fly… Continue reading Life goals?

Staying mad – D.P

I Can’t Stay Mad at You Do you hold grudges or do you believe in forgive and forget? I don't hold grudges and I forgive very soon but I never forget. So yes I can't stay mad at you. Another thought, why am I even doing this prompt after a day?


This had to be shared. Please note- I am a Nikon guy.  

The dance

They held hands And danced together For a long time And the moon witnessed it all.

Thoughts of a Crooked Mind

Okay,I am not just going to talk about a bird but something more important.I mentioned earlier that I like to find out something positive and interesting out of common things.So yes this is one of my post where I tell you about an encounter I had with a fledgling a while ago.

We met first in Stockholm, at a conference that Mankel had largely funded, dedicated to the subject of child literacy – one of his major concerns.

The Pyramid

Mr. Mankell died of cancer some weeks ago. He is one of my favourite writers, having read several of his Kurt Wallander series I decided to pick this one up.
