My big love for scarves

I can't live without scarves. Ever person has a passion and mine is for scarves. I have dozens of them, and I still buy more and more.

I love painting silk scarves myself - so I always have yet another one that I think I need to have. Just in case.

In Memoriam: A tribute to my Mom

   My mom died yesterday, Thursday, after several days of complete agony.

Nice to meet you, I am the Household Shiva :)

I am definitely the household Deity at home. I seem to be the most popular always-needed-by-all person around, believe it or not.

I blog – ergo, I exist

Well, we have to admit it, it seems to have become part of today’s life. If we do not blog we are practically ghosts. Ok, ok, we kind of exist but only to those “gifted ones” that are able to hear our voices in the old conventional way – say, on the phone or in a regular face-to-face conversation. How old-fashioned! Parents are blogging; kids are texting;  vice versa as well. ...
