What They Don’t Tell You

I have had a fantastic weekend in Beijing to see one of the best humans I know. This is enough to keep you happy, right? We explored the ancient hutons, ate amazing dumplngs, danced the night away and caught up. This should be enough to keep me happy. But something happened. When I was back […]

The Undulating Journey: Joy.

Joy (noun): “A feeling of great pleasure and happiness.” I have often wondered why I have always been the victim of the infamous “tears of joy”. I can only imagine that the path leading to immense joy is a long, sad, treacherous journey. How else would you possibly know that you have arrived at destination […]

Christmas Confusion..

For you… I never really took the time to understand my feelings and get the jist of everything. It has been some months so I have been asking myself, “Why am I still curious?” and “Why does my heart sink to the floor?” Three months to be exact. It is awful on my part that […]
