The Mary Ann from Kenya

It was the first week at school, a new country, a new place, everyone was a stranger. Everything seemed foreign, even the rain and the clouds who were always my support in the burning days of difficulty seemed adverse. The rain was cold and depressing, the clouds were genuinely dark on me. I was clueless,… Continue reading The Mary Ann from Kenya

Strolling in the royal hunting grounds

Yildiz Park: the north point on the hill, you walk the slope down from here. Hidden in a silent lonely hill, away from the skyscrapers, hustle and bustle of the cafes, shops and bars, in an old suburb of Beşiktaş district lies Yildiz park (Yıldız Sarayı). The entrance to the park eluded me several times,… Continue reading Strolling in the royal hunting grounds

The Vanity Slump

Once upon a time there was a peasant girl who lived happily on her farm. She toiled day in and day out helping her mother in the fields and father in the forest to collect wood. Time passed and she grew up to be a young woman. She was talk of the village for her… Continue reading The Vanity Slump

Neutralize in the still void of the wilderness

The silent silver shoots with the ice capped peaks in the backdrop. I left the city for a break one winter. The break was like a desperate escape from the fast paced city life. I went to a village not even on the map. It was a 2 hour drive from the Argaeus Volcano (Mount… Continue reading Neutralize in the still void of the wilderness

The Beast Inside of Him

It surprises me how much relationship advice one can get from classic tales. There's a reason why masterpieces are called so. The best and most realistic version of the beauty and the beast fairytale I found was La Bella e la Bestia tv series 2014 from Mediaset Spain, LuxVide and RaiFiction Italy . An unkown,… Continue reading The Beast Inside of Him

An adventure in Ancient Rome

★★★★★ I was disappointed in a positive way when I read the Forbes article "‘Assassins Creed Odyssey’ Is The Perfect Non-Animal Crossing Lockdown Game" (read here), because it said everything that I wanted to say. The writer Paul Tussi literally stole the words from my mouth. Assassins Creed Odyssey is the game to play in… Continue reading An adventure in Ancient Rome

Grinding to 80s synth and vinyl under lockdown

If anything positive could possibly have come out from the house arrest during this pandemic, it is rediscovering childhood favourite songs. They were infact cult classics and only in a mature age can their awesomeness be truly appreciated. My rooms needed painting and with everyone under lockdown the job was left down to me. I… Continue reading Grinding to 80s synth and vinyl under lockdown

The innocence at Wildfell

Unapologetically I proclaim the vain nature of Jane Eyre and Wuthering Heights. Classic and heavily admired as they are, filled with doom amid romance, they are totally overshadowed by the practicality, blunt nature and straightforward merit of Anne Bronte's magnum opus "The Tenant of Wildfell Hall". The moment I watched it, I watched it again,… Continue reading The innocence at Wildfell

 But first wait long

We all need something in life. We are all in want and in need of something desperately. It could be big or small, valuable or cheap. It could be the most important need of your life or a simple want. It could be as simple as growing nails, growing long hair, loosing weight to be… Continue reading  But first wait long

From Me, To Me.

Why is it that we always buy flowers for others? For the sick whilst visiting a hospital, for a loved one, for parents, for your wife, girlfriend, for an occasion, for a wedding, or a funeral. Why always for the other? While there is nothing wrong with giving people flowers and it must be done.… Continue reading From Me, To Me.
