    1. @Taiwo: What a delight to hear from an old friend of this blog! You seem to have a new identity. Do tell me more.

      1. Good to be here. Actually I’m experimenting with a few alter egos, not just one new identity. So there’s the kid in me, the future me and the brainy me. Taiwo is the future me. ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m trying to get them talk to each other :p The new blog is the safe house where they meet.

  1. Lines that spoke to me

    I find myself single with very little financial or professional stability. And the health issues rack up. How to make sense of this?

    I am afraid of crowds, of meeting new people, of talking to large groups

    How do I survive a world that I don't understand any more?

    We don't make friends, we only recognise them

    But isn't all newness. Through the pollution, comes the fresh breaths of people who have always lingered at the periphery of my life, navigating their own

    None of them rescue me. Not one of them asks me to rescue them

  2. Happy birthday.

  3. Happy birthday Ramya,I do read your blog and look forward to your short stories too.
    Can’t say that I understand all that you have poured out, but can relate to a few of the challenges that coming with ageing.

    1. @ravishankar: Thank you so much! Yes, I know the writing is a bit incoherent. I’m writing again after several weeks of not being able to so it’s all a bit of a jumbled mess. I’m hoping things will stabilise soon. Age ought to have something going for it.

  4. You’re not meant to give me a gift on your birthday, but I will still take it with love. Thank you, my friend. A very happy birthday.

    1. @Karishma Sundaram: Let’s just call of these gifts that give both ways, shall we? Thank you for everything that you have been!
