How quickly we can be humbled.

I think about when I had Cochlear Implant surgery for my left ear in February 2022. I remember waking up from anesthesia and suddenly bursting into tears for absolutely no reason. I later found out that’s a side-effect of anesthesia. What was most memorable about that surgery wasn’t the surgery itself. I’d had the same… Continue reading How quickly we can be humbled.

My Fear of Publishing

That’s right. I have a fear of publishing stories. I’m not sure if that is an understandable or irrational fear. I’ve been writing fiction more seriously in the past months and when it comes time to edit and publish, I hesitate because a piece of me is afraid it will be judged once it is… Continue reading My Fear of Publishing

Childlike Curiosity

Thinking about how, when I am out and about in the streets, I would see children staring at me. Staring at my head specifically. I can tell they are staring at my Cochlear Implant processor.

The beauty of the internet age

Occasionally I come across a new idea or philosophy that I need to bounce off somebody. To discuss the merits/demerits or whatever. Let’s say I pick a friend nearby to discuss it with, this may be because I’m boring but oftentimes you can see their eyes glaze over and maybe they pick up their phone… Continue reading The beauty of the internet age

Starting a practice

I set up this website not necessarily for an audience, at least for now. But to build a practice of writing every day. The blog is not the main focus. The short stories are. I hope to get better at writing fiction, as this is something I have never really had practice writing. Although I’ve… Continue reading Starting a practice
