You and I have never met many times before. Our paths might have crossed once or twice, standing in a line, passing in the street. But, against incredible odds, we miss each other every time. Accidental strangers who just happened to miss their cue. Neither having any idea that the other even exists. It’s hard … More Moments Of Tangency
Last year I was in a car accident. Nothing too dramatic, three lanes. Me on the far right, the man in the far left – and we both merged into the middle lane, and each other. I had merged into a very creepy 60 year old man named Tim. I stored Tim’s details in my … More Tim VS Tim

Or does it stay there, missing you, waiting patiently for the moment you’re ready to be loved again, if ever? The other day I visited my father, he was renovating my grandmothers … More The Architecture Of Ended Love
