This blog was supposed to be a daily rite.

But as the saying goes, “Man proposes, God disposes”.

So here I am, writing intermittently from a different country, a different laptop and a completely altered mindset.

I am watching my father-in-law fight for his life, he is now basically being kept alive by machines. Each morning when I wake up at 6 am to visit him, a cold, cold hand grips my heart. I pray very hard, to take him into Light from Darkness, and I hope that that one at least is not a lost battle.

I will be here once in a while, because this blog is all about writing on purpose. On writing with a purpose. Sometimes, it is sometimes simply about writing.  And since writing is not isolated from life, it is also a bit about life itself. I think the altered mindset is taking over, and so here I stop my ramblings.
