An Experience about Feeding Baby Doves

A few days ago, I went to my friend’s house, it was windy and the wind had brought a baby dove into my friend’s yard, there wasn’t any bird’s nest in the yard, so we couldn’t put the chick back to his mother. We noticed ants attaching him, my friend said if we left him here, the ants ate him alive, she gently dusted the ants off and asked me if I could accept to look after the chick or not because she had to go to work. “ I like to look after a baby bird but…

Attention Seeking Is a Personality Disorder!

     I have read articles about people who love getting attention by behaving inappropriately. Some may choose positive ways like creating a situation where they are praised or liked by people. And some may don't get bothered about the quality they get. Some get attention by creating a pity situation for themselves. So that people show sympathy towards them. They actually like to be…

         Some years ago, I found another way of traveling, yes cruising. Ships use to be so big. This last one I took could harbour 3900 passengers with a crew of 1200 people. The members of the crew are formed by waiters, cleaning service, enterteiners, cooks... and obviously the captain and people in charge to manage the ship. Summing up, they are like "small moving towns" where you can find everything you need;  restaurants, cafes, casino, a cinema room, discotheque, a library, swimming…

The bottom line is 'love'

This is on the inspiration I got from Alice's Word Play-2 - 'Idioms on the word 'cut'

Sometimes I receive remarks that I always circle around ‘love’, means that the plot of my stories/blogs is always ‘love’ one way or the other.  Of…

Soporific Romance

Muskan gave some words inviting to use them in a story.  Here is my bid to make a short para using these words = nonchalant, coax, placid, whimsical, soporific and rapacious:

I was so nonchalant, took her love so whimsically, and didn’t realize she would turn to be so rapacious and possessive in love that she would not allow me to see or praise any other girl, and put me in public trial to make me…

It may have been the verbs that gave you away

English verbs are a very important part of speech - if not the most important one. No wonder some learners still can't use verbs correctly, even though they have learned all the basic rules of them. When you use verbs to make a sentence, you should take into consideration the following:

What structures are possible after a particular verb

Some verbs can be followed by an infinitive or the -ing form or 'object + infinitive' or…

What did I learn from chatting in main room

Although some members think that chatting is just for fun. I totally disagree with them because I learnt alot of things from chatting in main room. For example, I watched many great discussions about different aspects of life. The perfect answer for this question which I liked it was for unclescrooge's wife. She said that we can learn how to communicate with different characters so we know how to put ourselves into aproper place. moreover, we interact with people of different cultures with… Continue

Romance with the nature

I have been in love with the nature since the time I can recall. The beautiful birds singing their songs, the cattle, the lush green gardens, the brown mountains and the limitless light blue sky that covers it all. The stars that twinkle at night and the Sun that brightens the days. 

It's sad that a man has been polluting nature in many ways. 

Have you ever took time to observe a buffalo regurgitating its food. I have done it so many times. It's so interesting and…

Never Feel These Ways, It Will Not Work

 Love is always confusing for some people, even so, falling in love is when someone can really feel happy with love one. They protect each other and give happiness to his / her partner. Sometimes it is very easy for someone to fall in love, but on the other hand, there is a very hard feeling to fall in love for some people. But in fact, falling in love is a way to find your true love, and you need to ask whether the right people on your side now is your true love?

 Actually there are…

The wolf inside of us

We all have had a kind of conversation inside our head while we try to do something. Part of us encourages us to do it and the other part tires to prevent us from doing it. We may call it good and bad parts, positive and negative parts, angel and evil parts of ourselves or whatnot. There is an ongoing conversation between these two parts which helps us to make a better choice, although sometimes the good…

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder

The idiom 'beauty is in the eye of the beholder' means people don't always see eye to eye. That's to say something that you think is beautiful may not be regarded or considered to be beautiful by others. 

For example, many of us may have enjoyed the June blogathon (last month's writing challenge), while some may think it's pointless or meaningless to write so many blogs in such a short period of time. 

Some people may enjoy…

They need opportunity

Recently I have observed a new perspective in movies. It was always like there were some nice people against those who were the bad guys.  The good ones were always good and the bad ones were always bad. It was like they were born to be villain. The new perspective in movies tries to see positive and negative features in villains. They would act so differently if they had a chance; I meant the chance of…

V is for Varoufakis!

The Greeks surprised the European polibureaucracy in Brussels by letting the people speak—an outrageous dose of democracy from a country said to have been its birthplace! And the (now ex-) Finance Minister of Greece was largely to be thanked for it, much to the annoyance of the European elites who are trying to bail out the banksters. …
