  • Home alone

    It has not been very often these days when I am home alone. We almost always have each other around the house. And though we both enjoy together-alone “me time”, it’s rare that I have evenings all to myself without you being here. I look at the faint traces of sunlight on the bare blank…

  • 2020 – A Year in Review

    2020 has been a strange year. A year where the world has lost its track and I (somewhat) found mine. It started badly, where all sorts of things went wrong, and in the middle of the rumbles I finally realised that I had noone to blame but myself. My mind cleared up and for the…

  • MOVIES | Little Forest

    Một tháng thử thách với thay đổi mới, ở một nơi mới, vừa lạ vừa quen. Đọc nhiều, xem nhiều, học được rất nhiều thứ. Có những niềm vui, và chút xíu nỗi buồn. Nhưng đều để lại đằng sau để hướng về một tháng Mười hai với rất nhiều dự định và chuyến đi xa mới.

  • BOOK | Summer Reads

    1. Gifts of the Sea – Anne Morrow Lindbergh: It’s the kind of book I read and re-read and dip in once in a while, the kind of books I want to buy and give it freely to any woman, my mother, my relatives, my girl friends, old and young, near and far, single or…

  • 34

    Lâu rồi không viết, tự nhiên thấy người cũng mòn đi. Rất nhiều lãng mạn cũng lọt qua kẽ nứt từ bao giờ. Có lẽ vì những khoảng thời gian trống rỗng khiến mọi thứ mù mờ như trong sương. Sinh nhật không hoa, không quà, chỉ có những lời chúc từ phương xa. Nói…

  • BOOK | Gone with the Wind

    I finished “Gone with the Wind” last week, for the fourth time. A marvelous masterpiece that stands firm as my favourite novel of all time. “Scarlet O’Hara is not beautiful. But men seldom realise it when caught by her charm.” There was no other book whose first sentence would be stamped in my mind so…

  • Paris

    We strolled down the long street of Faubourg-Saint-Antoine that leads to Place de la Nation. The faint light at the end of the day was still on but the wind was already setting in its chilly air. A bookstore on the way stopped us with its display of summer-themed books at the window. Three pairs…

  • HEALING | Bài học từ Ikebana

    “Cắt đi, cắt đi…” bác trai ngồi góc chéo với tôi ở dãy bàn xếp hình chữ U động viên. “Nhưng mà cháu thấy có lỗi lắm ạ…” tôi vừa cười ngượng nghịu vừa khua khua cái kéo lên ý bảo rằng mình cũng muốn lắm nhưng mà phải bỏ đi một nụ hoa làm…

  • Musing | To the Class of ’97

    Ladies and gentlemen of the class of ’97: Wear sunscreen If I could offer you only one tip for the future, sunscreen would be it. The long-term benefits of sunscreen have been proved by scientists, whereas the rest of my advice has no basis more reliable than my own meandering experience. I will dispense this…

  • 32 – Work in Progress

    Yesterday was my birthday. . I woke up and took a shower early. While waiting for my hair to dry I put on a lotion mask and meditate. It’s been quite a while since I started looking after myself again. This body, this skin, these eyes and ears and hands and feets are those who…
