Can I lick the wooden spoon?

cake bowl licking

It’s a right of passage, every mothers duty

To hand down that wooden spoon,

Down the generation it goes, life’s simplest of pleasures

A tradition, a culture followed from Canada to Calcutta


When do we grow up, wanting more?

When does, can I? become want and want becomes need?

When does need becomes more than I need?

A tradition, a culture spreading from North to the South


Life’s simplest of pleasures,

That’s all I want.


Daily post word : Pleasure













I am a beginner to all this blogging. Recently found a passion for writing. Not sure if I am a good enough writer to publish a REAL book. I am probably using this as a testing platform to see if I attract enough interest. I was born in Sri Lanka, now for the last 26 years living in Australia. So am I a Sri Lankan or Australian, it changes time to time. Lets say I am not ashamed to say I am a Sri Lankan but I think my affections lie with Australia. I am a cancer survivor, marriage survivor, war (civil war) survivor and what ever else the world/destiny has thrown at me. So my blog I guess would be about all those things. Humour is Huge for me, fairness is huge for me, I question everything religion, cultural beliefs, Political decisions. So watch out for some some fireworks laced with humour.
