Grilled Fish Fillet

The Inspiration Shots

iPhoneOgraphy – 26 Aug 2016 (Day 239/366)

Fish are consumed as food by many species, including humans. It has been an important source of protein and other nutrients for humans throughout recorded history.

In culinary and fishery contexts, the term fish can also include shellfish, such as molluscs, crustaceans and echinoderms. English does not distinguish between fish as an animal and the food prepared from it, as it does with pig vs. pork or cow vs. beef. Some other languages do, as in the Spanish peces versus pescado. The modern English word for fish comes from the Old English word fisc (plural: fiscas) which was pronounced as it is today. English also has the term seafood, which covers fish found in the seas and oceans as well as other marine life used as food.

Fish can be prepared in a variety of ways. It can be uncooked (raw) (e.g. sashimi)…

Dreams in Color

Smother me

in Greenpeace sleep

your autumn kisses

returning soon

delving into

Indian Summer

as the Monarchs return

golden orange treasures

take flight

as the Forests spread their

big, green hands wide

scattering color spots

flickering dots

seeking an autumn sky

the climate wheel spins…

Monarch majesty soars

pulling my shadowed soul

into the glory of their flight

promising an unfettered fall

and dreams of vivid color

Word of Advice: Impossible Dream


Dearest Kally,

I will come straight to the point of my problem and hopefully, you can throw some light for me. I am extremely keen to join the fashion world as a model. Please don’t laugh at me and my dreams! God knows how many people have thrown cold water on me whenever I confess my dreams.

I am young, fresh out of college, living in a small town. But I am very determined to fulfil my dreams, together with my hard earned money gained from various ad-hoc holiday and part time jobs, I know I have enough to buy myself a ticket to France and be sustainable for at least another 6 months there. I have been hardworking, teaching myself French for the past two years. I am realistic and I know it is difficult and tough but I won’t be able to live with myself if I don’t…

Log Bench Viewing‘Carnival’

“Well, I’ve walked these streets
A virtual stage, it seemed to me
Makeup on their faces
Actors took their places next to me

Well, I’ve walked these streets
In a carnival, of sights to see
All the cheap thrill seekers vendors and the dealers
They crowded around me

Have I been blind have I been lost
Inside myself and my own mind
Hypnotized, mesmerized by what my eyes have seen?

Well, I’ve walked these streets
In a spectacle of wealth and poverty
In the diamond markets the scarlet welcome carpet
That they just rolled out for me

And I’ve walked these streets
In the madhouse asylum they can be
Where a wild-eyed misfit prophet
On a traffic island stopped and he raved of saving me

Have I been blind, have I been lost
Inside myself and my own mind
Hypnotized, mesmerized by what my eyes have seen

Have I…

Never Hide Your Wings!

Through Open Lens

Butterfly 1

F/ 5.6, 1/320, ISO 400.


My friend thinks he is smart.

He told me an onion is the only food that makes you cry, so I threw a coconut at his face.

Interesting Fact: Butterflies can eat anything that can dissolve in water. They mostly feed on nectar from flowers but also eat tree sap, dung, pollen, or rotting fruit. They are attracted to sodium found in salt and sweat. This is why they sometimes even land on people in Butterfly Parks. Sodium as well as many other minerals is vital for the butterflies reproduction. ( )

At Sunset 

Kevin Brown Poetry

​The world around us fades,

As if the sun in its final moments -

Dissolves our frailties,

And ignites our souls.

We meander -

Through each others minds,

Finding darker things -

And bring them to light.

Not to hurt or be hurt,

But to set free.

In this half-light,

Two half hearts,

Become one,

Two lovers;

Sharing one sun.

Dear Friends:

I promise I won’t inundate you with book stuff!  But I really want to share some good news from the first days after my book was released online:

  1. Diane Taylor, author ofThe Gift of Memoir, (an excellent go-to book on memoir-writing) was the first to review my book. A very nice review, though it also made me cry.
  2. I got to hold the first copy of An Honest House in my own hands on Wednesday.  
    Book An Honest House First Copy 1
  3. And author and book blogger Kev Cooper, of  Kev’s Raves and Reviews, gave the book a big shout-out this week.  

Thank you both, Kev and Diane!
