What do we really need to be happy?

Nothing of what we are led to believe we need. Do you really need the most fancy tooth paste to be happy? or most expensive phone? the oldest wine or the best bread out there ? Or the best position in your company? Or the best job or the best client? Do you believe that going to…

My life as a vegetarian and other stories

I haven’t written in a long time. I was rather lost. And every time I wanted to write something on the blog I would convince myself it was not important enough to share it with others. Researching on the web on articles about blogging I discovered that everybody writes about themselves, about things in their…

Rome

First time I came to this place it was something I have never experienced in my life. The height of the columns, the vastness of the piazza, the stillness of the air, the great number of people waiting in line. It was a hot day in June, but there was something magical in the air,…

I am a Rain Runner

Many times I am miserable because I focus on what I lack instead of what I have. I just keep thinking that everyone else has so much more, and that I have nothing compared to them. But sadly comparing ourselves to other is a game that ends badly which ever way we play it. If…

A note to inspire

It’s been a long time since I wrote anything. But these days I have been reading a lot and the things I have been reading have inspired me to such extent that I want to share them in a way. Maybe somewhere, somehow they can help someone in need. Many a times I find myself…

Frozen love

It is a night of cold and frost, so cold, i fear my heart is lost, to the white snowy winterscape. I fear it’s lost without escape. My feet are cold, the wind is strong, I dream of places I belong, where all is warm and filled with love, where stars shine brightly from above….

Traveling in my mind I see the world

First time I came in contact with Nepal was at the age of 10, when I found out that the highest mountain on earth, Everest, was located there. But I have to admit it did not make me very curious to read more about the country. In my mind, at that age, the country didn’t…

Autumn night

The air around is blurry A misty fog covers the ground People pass by in hurry There is hardly any sound. Even the gentle wind is silent The sky, dark with shiny stars The moon shows as a compliment To this beautiful night, without cars. The quiet , so deep, you  hear the earth spinning,…

A story

For many years I worked in palliative care. My patients were those who had gone home to die. Some incredibly special times were shared. I was with them for the last three to twelve weeks of their lives. People grow a lot when they are faced with their own mortality. I learnt never to underestimate someone’s capacity for…
