I finally understood what she wanted to say to me. 


She told me to listen.

So I did.

“I can’t tell you how I feel,” she said. I was confused.

A song softly played on my stereo, echoing through our silence.

“Listen,” she whispered.

We held hands and swayed to the sound. I felt a warmth throughout my body as she stared into my eyes with a smile.

At the end of the song, she faded away.

Tears trickled down my face. I finally understood what she wanted to say to me.

(Below is the song that played – “Fall At Your Feet” by Lucy Neville)

Last night you came to me.


Last night you came to me

You gave me three songs

One for our pain

Two for our love

And three for our tomorrow

I love the feel of books being physically with me.


I love the feel of books being physically with me as well as their soul. I have books on shelves in my living room and office. I also have stacks of them on my nights stands on both sides of my bed. When reading before bed, books don’t radiate blue light like when reading from a computer, pad, or smartphone. Further, I take a book with me on trips or to the coffee shop.

Pasta with Mushrooms and Onion


I cooked pasta with shiitake, shimeji, and enoki mushrooms, and diced onions, topped with grated parmesan cheese.
