Keeping It Cool

“Don’t think the garden loses its ecstasy in winter. It’s quiet, but the roots are down there riotous.” Rumi The weather app is predicting temperatures below or close to 0°c all day.

It is every golfer’s dream to play scratch or under. Most never get to that. There are those that come close but few touch the brinks of that desire. Golf is a deceptive sport.

The Wings of Love

It begins with a glance and ends in tears. It rises from waiting and leads to longing. Once the eyes meet, the calm departs. When beauty arrives through one door, the heart leaves through the other. When love lands in the valley of a heart’s chamber the magic echoes in the mountains of existence. TheContinue reading “The Wings of Love”

The Red Rose

As I reached home after an abysmal round at the Margalla Greens Golf Club, I was feeling defeated and drained. When I got out of my car, a dazzling red rose magnetically struck me. It was smiling at me in a welcoming gesture. It was at its full bloom as it turned completely towards theContinue reading “The Red Rose”
