Currently, I Can’t

Currently, I cannot do terribly much. It is a good thing, to sit back and just wait to heal. I have the time to reflect, I have moments to seize and seconds to contemplate. All the books I now have time to read, old favourites to revisit like forgotten memories who drop in for an … Continue reading Currently, I Can’t

Friday Rambles

As we all know, there are certain things we cannot question. History, although written by the winners in any given conflict, is in certain aspects sacrosanct. We have been given a set of numbers, however improbable, and a series of events that are unquestionable because, well, they are and if you don't agree, bow your … Continue reading Friday Rambles
