The Perfect Gift

"What's the perfect gift?" A reply I got when I enquired about the "gifting" plans for my birthday. I didn't and couldn't find an answer to that no matter how hard I tried. What is the perfect gift? Is it something that makes you happy? Is it a "something" or a "gesture"? We are in … Continue reading The Perfect Gift

The Golden Glitter

It's travel solo. A lot. Sometimes it's a bit too much as I start to introspect my life, my dreams and everything far and beyond.
