Big Things

Me and you? Yeah, we’re going to do big things. You see the crescent moon up there ? We’re going to be sitting on its edge, watch the stars as they stage their nightly show. Big things, Because we were born with hearts that have walls that move, To make space for the sun and... Continue Reading →

A handwritten letter in 2013

5 years back, my family encountered a peculiar event. Believe or not, but we received a letter. Handwritten on what looked like pages torn from a notebook, with random blotches of ink, sealed in an envelope complete with a postage stamp. Yes, a letter in 2013.
