The Journey Begins

Thanks for joining me!

Chasing ducks, watching people, listening to stories/tales and pouring my heart out in the journal entries have been some of my hobbies. I am glad that you have chosen to join the journey. Hope to share the few things that were otherwise left unsaid. Waiting to hear from you all that’s worth listening to. Because life is not a race, but a journey to be savored each step of the way.

Would you like to know your future?

If your answer is yes, think again. Not knowing is the greatest life motivator.

So enjoy, endure, survive each moment as it comes to you in its proper sequence — a surprise.
