in more than one place"

Omar flew around the corner on his way up to the roof playground at lunch break that first day of the autumn semester, stopping millimetres short of colliding with me.  I hadn’t seen him either, so we both froze, laughed, and escorted each other to where we were both going, he to play and me to supervise. 

“Did you have a good summer, Omar?” I asked.

“Oh, very good, Miss,” he grinned.

“Did you go away?”

“Of course!”  Nobody stayed for the blistering heat of a Gulf summer if they could avoid it.  “We go to London to stop with my Auntie.  It was very fun.”

interruptions into the expected narrative of your

daily life - and theirs"

- Kio Stark

person or a situation we are meeting a part of ourselves residing in the shadows,

awaiting integration"

- C. Page

Every encounter is an un-

expected story of love and transformation.  If we remain 

the same before and after, that

means we haven't loved enough. For any heart  that opens to the sparkles of  love opens in truth

and love harder this time.

-Megha Venketasamy

is something that we choose through the chances that

we decide to take."
— Terry McBride

"All my life one of my greatest  desires has been to travel --to see and touch unknown countries, to swim in unknown seas, to circle the globe, observing new lands, seas, people, and ideas with insatiable appetite, to see everything for  the first time and for the last time, casting a slow, prolonged glance, then to close my eyes and feel the riches deposit themselves inside me calmly or stormily according to their pleasure, until time passes them at last through its fine sieve,

straining the quintessence

out of all the joys and sorrows.
