Lost

May 23, 2017

I stare into the future. I cannot see a thing. There are paths. Several of them. They intertwine, crossover, go straight and wind around. They confuse me. I realise with a sense of trepidation — I’m lost. It’s how I feel. Or rather, have been feeling. I wondered if the sea-change was the answer. The move away from the hustle and bustle. But maybe not. Because no matter how far you go, you cannot escape  yourself. You cannot escape the…

Bouddi National Park {Sundays in my City}

May 21, 2017

Last Sunday, I went for a short but beautiful hike in Bouddi National Park with a friend.

A letter to my future self #FridayReflections

May 12, 2017

Dear 43-year-old Sanch, It’s weird thinking of you in your forties. For some reason, I always remember dreaming of life in my twenties and thirties but never the forties. No, I didn’t think you’d be dead before forty but in my younger years, it seemed so far away. So unattainable. 43-year-old Sanch — how are you? I hope you are content with life. I know that ten years ago, there was a lot of discontent. A great deal of soul-searching.…
