Day break was still an hour or so away. Night still covered the sky like a dark velvet blanket; perfectly placed across the sky refusing to fall out of place. The moon shone dull with no intention of being any help to the wary. Most souls clutched their blankets to their necks, disconnected from reality […]

Obsession of the unknown kind.

He was divorced. He lived alone. He had few friends. None to be exact. He was anti-social. He couldn’t care less if the neighbor’s house caught fire. Infact, he couldn’t care less if his own house caught fire. It was a miracle he still had a job. He hated his job. Truth be told, everyone […]

It’s not easy being 75 years old; it’s even worse being 75 and traveling on a plane. But the worst thing is to be 75, traveling on a plane and going to meet one of your best friends who is on his death bed. It’s not easy to be living away from your homeland for […]

Today was like no other. But it was totally different. He had these days far too often. He stood on the small bridge made of stone blocks that stretched across the small lake in the park. He rested his arms on the rail guards and looked down into the water at his reflection. A few […]

October 25, 2007

 I remember when my son was born. It was the happiest day of my life by far. I was so proud. That was the first time in years I had tears of joy. My son came and strengthened the bond between my wife and I.  I remember when my son started saying his first words. […]
