Change Is The Only Constant In Life
Heraclitus, Greek Philosopher

One of the topics I write about as I discuss life and life lessons is Change — its constancy, inevitability, and certainty. Since we will always experience change, a mindset armed with this fact will help us better respond to change and life’s vagaries

In light of the foregoing, I have been doing some stock-taking and appraisal Considering the new changes recently announced by Medium, I have decided it best to close my 2 publications. …

Celebrating my favorite TV series

Why I love this series

A lot of you might be wondering why I have been raving about Erkenci Kus, the Turkish Romantic comedy TV series I recently discovered. To tell you the truth, I can’t explain it myself. The show’s been around since 2018!. I just love the chemistry between Jan and Sanem; the quaint quarter, the lively acting, the celebration of family, food, love, and culture; the effusive language, expressions; body language, and general storyline. What’s there not to love?

To prove just how hyped I am about it, I wrote a poem inspired by the love story of Jan and Sanem. …

Poems for the times

It’s a crazy world right now
Confusion, anger, angst, fear, worry, pain
The future unclear. The present a blur
Nations confused. Leaders bemused

The pandemic, the wars, the upheavals, and protests
People angry. Leaders out of touch
The old guard toppled. The new unsure
A wave of change. A world unfurled

I know it’s unsettling and new
Confusing and scary
But remember the sunrises everyday
And promises a new day

Take it a step at a time
Today’s offer of a new dawn
New prospects and new experiences
Take the day. Seize the moment

Take your place in today
Own your…

Poems of the beloved

Such faulty foundation and rocky beginnings
Destabilized love’s compass
Leaving us Unbalanced and abandoned

On unsteady feet we flayed our gait disrupted
Tottering and rocking
In constant danger of fear and falling
Always at risk of uncertain doom
A hair’s breadth away from total destruction
Threatening to tear us apart now and forever


An action-thriller

By Gage Skidmore from Peoria, AZ, United States of America — Ben Affleck, CC BY-SA 2.0,


Ben Affleck is one of Hollywood’s versatile actors. It is difficult to pin him down to any one movie genre or character type. His movies are as diverse as the characters he plays. His performance as a cold, calculating, and merciless assassin in The Accountant is another reason why Ben Affleck is such a consummate professional.

The Accountant is masterfully woven with intrigue, suspense, and a bit of mystery. …
