Extracts from this document...


Describe your home. She stands there, all limp and tall; a mere pile of faded glued wood and stone she might be but to me she is my home, my only home. Observe her as I do for a moment, in the loud whispering wind. Does she not gently dance backwards and forth like rippling waves? Her exterior appearance is far from flattering. She is built of a dismal grey rock found now only in Arabia; the rocks are large and misshapen with rough angry surfaces but still fit together like pairs of jigsaw pieces . A few brown stunted firs and a range of gaunt thorns cling relentlessly to life on the edges of the grey stone walls just bellow the ...read more.

  1. Coming Home.

    On meeting them I exchanged small talk as I didn't know them so well. They were so happy to see us. They asked so many questions at the same time that I didn't know what to say. "How is Dubai?", "did you miss us?", "how was your flight?", "how do you like Goa".
