About in shade
A cocktail of personality traits hard to digest for some but ultimately soothing for those who can. I observe, enjoy, travel, interact, photograph, dance, contemplate, write and love my way through this life's countless occurrences. This blog is a way to share with the world and its people some of the treasures they give me every day.

“Give a man fish – he will live for one day. Teach a man to fish -he will live for a lifetime. Teach a man religion – he will die of starvation while praying for fish…” (somewhere on the internet…)

This ‘meta-romantic, heart-ripping-out-ly-intense’ darn pop song has embedded itself in my brain for several hours on repeat yet again (thank you, radio!) and I realized I finally had to do something about it. I am dead certain when Bruno Mars … Continue reading
On one of those nights when sleep was taking its time to take over, I was trying to recall the last random person I had slept with. By ‘random’ I mean either someone I barely know, and/or someone with whom … Continue reading
Without any exception. Meaning I am never, EVER wrong about anything. I also know everything. About everything. I am absolutely omniscient and I want this to be known to everyone – make no mistake: I know it all about all … Continue reading
