The Destruction of Words

The Destruction of Words

I posted a status update a couple of days ago but I somehow forgot to include the body text.  In my post, I referred to a quote from the book ‘1984’ by George Orwell, specifically referring to a conversation which occurs between staff members in the ministry of truth (ministry of information – ironically dubbed […]

The Day I Sold Newspapers in London!

The Day I Sold Newspapers in London!

I was in my final years at college in London and I used to walk to college every day.  On my way, I would pass familiar faces and I always waved hello – I knew most of them by name, including the postman, milkman, refuse collectors and Liam, the newspaper seller by Bond Street Station.  […]

April 24, 2013

24th April marks a day of bereavement for Armenians worldwide. Today, we honour 1.5 million Armenians, victims of the massacres at the hands of the Turkish regime and its collaborators. The regime, used non conspicuous tactics and devious methods to rid themselves of incriminating evidence, safeguarding themselves against future investigations or reprisal. The massacres were […]

Why am I a magnet for ‘Wrong Numbers’?

Why am I a magnet for ‘Wrong Numbers’?

I keep getting telephone calls from complete strangers and usually they are apologetic and genuinely puzzled.  It can be quite irritating sometimes, especially if I am in the middle of something important.  Sometimes, when I am in the mood, I go along with their call and enjoy a few minutes of harmless fun… I am […]

Time Is Running Out For Lebanon

Time Is Running Out For Lebanon

Once upon a time, I knew a beautiful Lebanon where people lived in harmony and respect. That memory is so far away now, the air in Lebanon reeks of hostility and hatred and the Lebanese have never been as divided. Some blame the outside powers and claim that they are instigating this effect, while others […]

Life is Deathless

In 1990 I was invited to the Kingdom of Bhutan, to stay with a dear friend who was to be my host and guide to one of the most remarkable travel experiences of my life. Bhutan is a small peaceful country and the primary religion is Buddhism.  It is bordered to the north by China […]

Have you ever had a love hate relationship with a drink? I have and it’s called Absinthe…

Rewind to 2001 to when the outlawed drink suddenly started hitting shelves again and the word ‘Absinthe’ circulated in the mainstream.  In the UK,  the only Absinthe that was available was a significantly toned down version that lacked all of the fascinating extras that come with the magical drink – where’s all the fun with […]

The Hidden Truth

When I was young I was fascinated with the subject of the paranormal.  Perhaps it was due to the fact that I had personally experienced different phenomena first hand and because I possess an inquisitive mind anyway, I felt I needed to learn as much as I could about the subject. I was boarding at […]

Together We Are Light

Hate is an extension of the everlasting fire from the habitation of fallen angels.  It slithers its way into our being, it drives us to everything that we later regret. Fortunately, the fire is invariably self consuming.  We are not built in a manner that can accommodate a negative feeling of this magnitude any longer […]
