A drop of sandalwood oil, a drop of rose oil, ten drops of glycerin in a warm cup of water – it read. Dip your finger tips, wait half an hour. She always has the best solution to dry hands, my mother. Care. Yet when inside it rains, and she claps her hands, it is […]
Courage, I read, is not the absence of fear. Neither is it devoid of any anxiety. Little to do with ego, much to do with faith at the face of adversity. Gracious even with the knowledge of a foe in friendships trusting mask. Courage is when you stand up for yourself. That’s it. That’s enough. […]
