Journey to Shangri-La

I have been publishing articles in bodymindsoul magazine in the last few issues. In Vol.13, an article on my most memorable adventure to date in Shangri-La county, Yunnan, China was published. You can find it from page 38 to 42 in the magazine.

Shangri-La article

Shangri-La county in autumn time is cold and beautiful, especially in the Mount Meili National Park. We hiked 24km uphill in one day to reach our lodging for the night. After 2 days, we hiked 20km back out. It was the hardest physical challenge for me, which made it all the more memorable.

Want & Tatters

For this week’s Ronovan’s Weekly Haiku Challenge #41, the word prompts are ‘want’ and ‘tatters’. The words conjured up images of lost souls led astray, leading lives filled with mistakes and regrets. 😉

First, we set the tone and mood for the poem with a lonely, misty landscape…

Want & Tatters

His unbridled wants
Led him astray; in tatters
Lost, can he turn back?
