A short tarot themed story for you 🙂 Happy Valentines Day! Don’t slip up now. I shuffled the tarot pack. Who was my soul-mate? With a deep breath, I picked three cards then set them down one by one on the velvet cloth: the who, where, how… Who: Freedom. The eyes of the athletic man in the image burned into mine and I almost dropped the card. Would he know, this soul-mate, how I longed to experience real love and freedom, not this shallow excuse for a life? Where and how: The Fool and The World. The Fool looked like … Continue reading Microfiction: Who Where How
So, I finally got around to compiling into one volume most of my short (and very short) fantasy and science fiction, most written (and some even published) over the past 7-years (7 years! OMG times flying). ‘The Bagua and other … Continue reading Questings

I know there was a fun-run and numbed hands from fishing for water and cool-drinks from the ice-tub.

And as for December, well, we’ll get to that… Continue reading Let’s Not Do The Time-Warp, yeah?
This week should have been a terribly depressing one, but, strangely it wasn’t. I’ve been going through my writing – journaling, actually – from a few years ago when the world seemed full of possibilities and wishes coming true; a … Continue reading The Bucketless List or Wishlisting Part 2

Usually, when I want to double-check what the microbiologist would do, I call Mrs R, a microbiologist here in Durban. I was most fortunate when Mrs … Continue reading Microbiology for writers and the curious: a primer
You’ll never get your potential boyfriend to leave these digital worlds. And why would you when you could easily join him and save a few worlds and souls together.

The sharp-nosed assistants (in impression more in than appearance) contrive to look down their noses at my brother’s baggy cargo shorts, dusty sandals (not flip-flops, but close cousins), t-shirt and bush-hat. One will disappear, leaving the luckless one to see to us. Continue reading My Wining Little Brother
