New medication, a new beginning

After a month off my blog – I did kind of slack it off during August, because, August – I am finally back. So, let’s have a short update.

August was dreadful. Hot, humid, just unbearable. And coupled with all the work I had to do (on three fronts mind you) I was absolutely exhausted.

Oh, and no cultural productions and deep thought movies – I like Hollywood and the blunt entertainment it offers.

It is at times like those, when the hectic rhythm of life and our every day routine become a overwhelming, that you just need to get away from it all. Away from screens, phones, messages, social media – the works.
