A Lovely Sort of Orange

Brother and I went on another walk this weekend. This time we went through Bronxville Park (which was originally called a conservatory and established in 1913, according to a plaque we found on a rock while exploring) before I had to go to work. The weather wasn’t too bad, but that could have been because […]

An Autumn Walk

I went out walking with Brother recently. All the trees are turning a lovely gold color, contrary to my expectations. I was certain that fall would miss us this year, but seems we might just get a little autumn after all. For that I’m glad. It was really chilly out and very windy, but overall […]

Staying Frosty

It’s midterm week, so I’ve been busy trying to get my research done, essays written, and job applications out. It hasn’t been easy, but it’s slowly getting done. I’m getting to practice my time management and multitasking skills. Practice makes perfect I guess… I know I’ll be so glad once this week is over, but […]

The Changing of Seasons

So, it looks like autumn’s here at last. I mean sure, the autumn equinox was last month, but for most of October it didn’t feel like fall completely. Now, with the trees all colorful (or even completely bare), it really hits home for me. Before we know it, it’ll be Thanksgiving. This will be my […]

At Night

Everything looks so different at night… There are hardly any people out around 10 p.m, during the cooler weather. In the summer, people would be out chilling here until almost midnight, but now it’s a ghost town. No one’s even driving around! I wonder if this is what it would look like if all the […]

My Little Man

  This is my little man, Charlie. He goes by Kit Kat (short for Kitten-Cat as he has the body of a mountain lion and the mind of a small kitten), Little Man, Bug-a-boo, and Itty Bitty Little Kitty. In a couple of months, he will have been living with us for an entire year. […]


I got an email from an old friend the other day. I haven’t spoken to this person since around this time two years ago. When I opened that email, I remembered many things that I haven’t thought about in a long time. Reading that message, I started to compare who I was back then to […]

Inbound Train

It’s time to go home. It’s early evening and a chill is seeping into the air. In your hands are two bags of groceries, inside is your dinner. The train is pulling up to the platform, so you step back, far behind the yellow line. You can’t wait to get home. Will there be any […]


I have one particular scarf that I love and get so many compliments on. This is this scarf on a macro level. Photographed at about 1cm distance with a clip-on special lens made for mobile phones. As you can see it has plenty of colors, metallic threads, and tassels. It may very well be the […]
