  • Ruana and the rains 5 days ago It was in the middle of the day on Thursday, in a formal meeting.

Rain. I run to the window, and...
  • Collecting the water while it rains 1 week ago A Plea for the rains I jolt awake. A click echoes in my ears. And a sinking knowledge that the power has gone, the fan has stopped.

Feisty Blue Gecko's blog is amazing. She inspires everyone who reads her words. She is kind, honest, and puts herself out there.
