A Multitude of Averages

As I sat down today to jot down a few things on paper, I realized a couple of things as the ink spread across the carefully measured lines. On another note, I bought this amazing gel pen the other day from a photocopy place and it is probably one of the smoothest pens I have […]

100th Post: The Journey So Far

I got a notification yesterday that said that I had made my 100th post. How beautiful that my hundredth post here also happens to be one that is close to my heart. I’m in the process of writing a book, and what I posted here were excerpts from the book in the previous two posts. […]

Wind Swept (Continued)

Murad walked Sheila home, she saw the time and gasped. It was 7:30AM, where did the night go?. One moment, she was sitting on the bench over looking the Hudson River at The Highline Park; contemplating her existence and numerous heartbreaks, (Most recently with Jarar) and the next moment she was being swept off her […]

Tossed Feathers

“You are you and will always be, I am me and yet not so much. You are green with a dash of red, I am pink with a hint of ivory. Dusky yet milky, a vivid illustration. Do ‘You’ still like biting into watermelons oh beaky human friend? You know I always imagined you differently […]
