A Song of the Road





THE GAUGER walked with willing foot,

And aye the gauger played the flute;

And what should Master Gauger play

But Over the hills and far away?



Whene’er I buckle on my pack

And foot it gaily in the track,

O pleasant gauger, long since dead,

I hear you fluting on ahead.



You go with me the self-same way—

The self-same air for me you play;

For I do think and so do you

It is the tune to travel… Continue

Ogden's Basic English ...

Once again, I have found an interesting site for lovers of the English language. And it's a new one for me! I'm not sure I can even describe it, but it is called Ogden's Basic English. It is based on the idea that for the most part, you can get by with 850 words, and less than a dozen rules of grammar.



I like systems that make things simple.



Here you will find the… Continue

What is your favorite season????

My favorite season is the fall (autumn), the life in the autumn is sweeter than others seasons, we can say if there is season for the love it will be the autumn because it has a lot of romantic sceneries, that have direct influence on our emotion. My friends imagine, visualize the trees's leaves when it start falling, the rain when it has been raining, and the soft wafts when touch us. What is the feeling that you will have? They will give us life's extasy, the emotional… Continue

Facebook & Christmas Cookies

I was on facebook this morning-reading posts from my friends. I try not to spend to much time on facebook because I do have other things I should be doing-



But, it can become addictive-this eavesdropping on other peoples lives. If I were eavesdropping in person on a live private conversation I would feel a little bit guilty, but people on Facebook forget all of their friends can read what they have typed. Some of it can be rather embarassing. Sometimes, those people reveal too… Continue

Audio Challenge 1: Bed in Summer

Bed in Summer





IN winter I get up at night

And dress by yellow candle-light.

In summer, quite the other way,

I have to go to bed by day.



I have to go to bed and see

The birds still hopping on the tree,

Or hear the grown-up people’s feet

Still going past me in the street.



And does it not seem hard to you,

When all the sky is clear and blue,

And I should like so much to play,

To have to go to bed by… Continue

A Message to Mr I-Basely-Vanished

The weather is just nasty today...it sleets, the wind is sooo strong that when I was walking home I thought it would carry me far away (to some of my friends, may be : Karenina, Anele, Mr.Night, Nida, Mommy, Nadira and lots and lots... for a cup of tea ).Well...such weather just resembles my feelings and thoughts I have on my mind so I just decided it's time to reveal them and may be these words will reach out the right person.

Writing Challenge #25: 7 Secrets to learning English

Salaaam my friends,



How are you today? Hope you are just fine.



Admittedly, I was hesitant to post this blog for many reasons; first I don’t think I am qualified enough to right about “secrets of learning English”. I am neither a teacher nor an advanced learner. Second I am pretty sure that Tara, Expector Smith, Nadira and other member’s blogs with the same topic have thoroughly covered this topic, so I was shy because I knew my blog would be just low quality version from… Continue

Fly and land

Fly close around me

circle the air

land on me

hear my words

" I want you to be

always here "

you opened the cage

when I lost the key



I listened to your echo

I lost my page

what letters

which phrase

what are they ?



But, I know

you are my book

you are my title

wherever I look



I came closer

to your mountain

your stones…

Does being pretty matter?

I am worried about getting a job someday though. I’ve read all these things about how attractive people are more likely to be hired and are more likely to be paid more. Being ugly has kind of damaged my self-esteem, so I’m a bit awkward around strangers. How can I ever give a good impression in a job interview if I’m awkward and ugly?…

How to Be a Good Online Friend

I just realized that I have 999 friends on MyEC. Though many of these members are not active participants in the club, there are hundreds of members who consider MyEC a home away from home. If you've heard of Seth Godin, you'll know that he calls a club like ours "a tribe". We are a group of disconnected people with a like interest that brought us together. Though it may seem difficult to keep in touch with so many friends it is possible to touch the lives of many through blogs,… Continue

A Time In My Life.



There were a lot of occasions where we were exposed in situations that needed us to make a decision in a flash. Here is a situation I can share with you when I lend a helping hand to take care of my cousin's youngest child (at that time) who was just about 1 year old.



I took her with me to visit one place one day. It was a little tiring for me because I have to carry my niece most of the time. I thought, she was just…
