• Book Review – The Truth and Triumphs of Grace Atherton – Anstey Harris

    GRACE ATHERTON HAS FALLEN OUT OF LOVE ... AND INTO LIFE Between the simple melody of running her violin shop and the full-blown orchestra of her romantic interludes in Paris with David, her devoted partner of eight years, Grace Atherton has always set her life to music.

  • What Did You Learn This Year?

    As we are mid way through the year, I thought I should sit back and do a little recap of what I’ve been doing for the past 6 months of 2018. It has been a rough path for me, with some ups and downs (understatement). Whether it’s small or not, I’m curious to know what’s been going on, and what could be done for a better half year ahead.

  • Relationship question :Are you similar or opposites?

    When I first met my husband, my best friend pointed out something about me .. He said, “You were always searching for your ‘yin’ so that you could be ‘Yin and Yin’ in your life.” He told me, “You and your husband are Yin and Yang. ” He’s right. Before my husband came along ,I’ve always looked out for someone like me – straight forward, pre-planned, and futuristic. My husband on the other hand, couldn’t be more laid back and composed.
