“The most beautiful in the world is, of course, the world itself.”
I wondered how to start my Banff story. Then I thought, ‘What the heck, I will just tell the story as it comes to my mind!’ Because of the sheer number of the places we roamed, I’m writing this travel story into two-part series to cover the numerous locations we explored around Banff.
Banff is one of the world’s most awe-inspiring mountain destinations. Its pristine wilderness asks to immerse into the astounding natural awesomeness. …
Do you think it is important to love your work to live a better life?
Let me start with a story from my college time.
I conducted a regional survey in distant parts of Bangladesh under the World Health Organization (W.H.O.) project. I visited the local Health Centers and connected with local officers to capture the local health care status.
As W.H.O. ran projects to improve healthcare facilities in developing countries, the survey results were critical in determining what the projects should focus on.
I loved the work. Visiting hospitals and emergency care departments were sometimes complex. However, identifying the…
“You are one ride away from a good mood.”
Sarah Bentley, British cyclist
Okay, it is a story about riding a bicycle. While I was thinking about writing on reentry, this is the first story that popped up in my mind.
Strange, but not really!
Because it was my first bicycle ride after 18 years. And, the ride took me through unique emotions and incidents that made it worthwhile to write.
The story starts with the devasting pandemic stress caused by the global crisis 1.5 years ago.
‘Staying safe, keeping distance, and connecting digitally,’ our mental stress took a toll.
As the vaccination rates are going up in many countries, the governments are loosening the restrictions for covid-19 measures, including opening up office spaces. I was curious to know if the hybrid work (a blend of on-site and remote work) will be the direction for numerous organizations; what would be the best days to work?
Indeed, there will be a difference of opinion on which days are best to work. For example, the Economist had run a report stating that many employers prefer to give remote work options any day except Monday and Friday.
To prevent employees from doing…
‘What’s next?’ — My partner asked me to know where we would be heading as part of our daily outdoor exploration initiative.
After visiting Frenchman’s Bay, Purple Woods Conservation Area, and Seaton hiking trail, her expectation went high, and so was mine. And, after half an hour of net-surfing, we decided to go to Lynde Shores Conservation Area.
Lynde Shores Conservation Area is a 272-hectare area, established in 1972, well-known for wildlife viewing opportunities. The site is an excellent habitat for birds, including Black-capped Chickadees, White-Breasted Nuthatch, Blue Jay, Trumpeter Swan, Mallard, etc. …
to be given,
exhausted emotions covered me for today.
the nib is waiting,
my mind ignored both.
the air passed through a giant tree
touching the leaves,
the new ones cheered,
the dried ones dropped-off
to merge with the soul of the soil.
inside a mind
the wind of change escalates
and shutter the love into pieces
the feeling is mutual
some say, living onto the moments
for some, it passed a long time ago
alive is a term
to forget the ending
mine touched yours
yours to mine,
a small family inside a city
daily hustles endured
social presence, mingling
a great couple, a happy family — outside,
their trembling emotions shake in rages,
burdened with the failure of the couple’s broken sync
clashed interests, diverse possibilities,
life and contrasted goals
lost happiness, and angered clashes between the two
a war zone,
two enemies living into one den
and their 4-year-old kid
soaking all the harsh realities of the conflict,
embracing dirty truth
of ‘about to be broken family.’
an ugly bitterness to embrace, yet unknown to the kid
