    Is life a game? Hmmm what is a game?

  2. Hi Maha, I remember when I was 5 or 6 my knack for starting conversations was ‘What’s your favourite colour?’ I thought I might find kindred spirits that way.

    Are we still playing?

  3. You know I can’t resist an open document. Mine is all melody and harmony and tension.

    and i felt the urge to lift a line to make a poem …

    I dance the answer
    in graceful steps,
    a shift to the right
    a move to the left;
    my eyes closed to the world,
    as if dreaming,

    I am hoping there’s a chance
    that someone else out there,
    hearing the same song,
    will move alongside with me.
