It Takes Strength

Joining a new gym can be a tricky thing. You’d want to know if you are going mainly for the free weights, the cardio machines, or for the fitness classes. Maybe they even have some cool amenities that you keep eyeing, like their tennis courts or sauna. Maybe you just like the pool, because youContinue reading “It Takes Strength”

People want to know

When someone dies, people want to know, how? People want an explanation. They want to know what the persons last few months were like – especially if they died of an illness. They want to know, did they love me? Did they want to hear my voice one last time? Did they want to talkContinue reading “People want to know”

Online Stream

Sometimes I get a strong desire to watch movies online with strangers. Have you ever felt this way? This notion that you want to experience something with a group of strangers, online? Watching movies, for me, can definitely be a great solo experience or an experience shared with another person in the same room. ButContinue reading “Online Stream”

I was originally captivated by the colors, the sounds and the clothing of the time. The story of Charles Sobhraj’s victims set place in theContinue reading “The Serpent”

The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller

I cannot say I chose to read this book out of nowhere. I had already experienced Miller’s work before, when I read Circe. It was exceptionally well written, but even then I was hesitant about reading another book about Greek Mythology. I wasn’t sure what to expect. Circe was a book about a strong woman,Continue reading “The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller”

On Remembering

I want something different. I wish I could remember things better. A movie that I watched a year ago, a book that I read last month. Character’s names. Plots. Even just fun facts about the most trivial of things. My memory is no simply no good, and I do sometimes wonder what it must beContinue reading “On Remembering”
