Seek And You Shall Find

But if they had learned anything together, it was that wisdom comes to us when it can no longer do any good. – Love in the Time of Cholera The same, I suppose, is true of lost stuff. Remember that old garnet ring you cried five days because you couldn’t find? It was in your brother’s…

On Top of the World

Yes, I do mean the exhilaration you feel when your heart’s true desire transforms from imagination to reality but I’m also being literal. The tallest building in the world, beautifully designed, with a fountain show starting sharp at six at the base, is one of the must-visit destinations in Dubai. While you wait in the queue,…
