Sizzling Hot Covid19 Vaccine


My post Covid19 pandemic started yesterday.  When me and my sister (being registered under our local government’s waiting list) were told that an available vaccine is available, we immediately drove up to the designated vaccination site.

Though it is sad to note that majority of my country’s populace still doubts the significance and efficacy of the vaccine, such popular yet imprudent viewpoint became advantageous on my part for getting the vaccine. 

If you’re reading this article and wonder why such meek and lowly event of getting my first jab seem such a big deal on my part, please understand that my poor unregimented country has very limited supply of the vaccine.  It is because my country at this late point in time only depends on the United Nation’s donations as well as the dole-outs sent to us by rich countries because they either have surplus of the vaccines or that…

Antibodies against coronavirus variants weaken in 6-12 months: study

The findings by a Yokohama City University research team suggest that people who were infected in the early days of the pandemic, particularly those who had mild or no symptoms, still need to be vaccinated to reduce the risk of being infected by variants from Britain, South Africa, Brazil and India.

In the study, conducted on 250 people between the ages of 21 and 78, who tested positive for COVID-19 between February and April last year, 97 percent of those with mild or no symptoms had antibodies against the coronavirus six months after being infected. One year later, 96 percent of them still had antibodies to the disease.

Pallagram Pandemic Pandemonium

Weekend Stories by Trishikh

Deep in the heart of the ancient and mysterious jungle tableland of Ajodha Hills and reserve forest at the easternmost part of the lowest step of the Chhotanagpur Plateau and the extended regions of the Eastern Ghats mountain range, very close to the Chamtaburu mountain peak, at a distance of a day’s walk from the nearest town of Bagmundi through a scary and dangerous forest trail, lay the secluded Tribal village of Pallagram in the Purulia district of the state of West Bengal in the Indian subcontinent.

The forest people of Pallagram, though occasionally visited the neighbouring villages, towns, and other places in the region, usually liked to remain secluded. Neither did they like outsiders to visit their village nor did they like to spend much time at any other place. To conduct trade and get certain essentials, which were impossible to be acquired or made in the village some…

He aprendido

Google translation of title and first paragraph: I have learned – Over time, I have learned to put together words and place accents, punctuation and signs in order to bring them to life, turn them into dreams and ideas and create worlds between reason and the senses; But the days have also taught me to draw joy and smiles on children’s faces, on the people I love and on the people who walk through the streets and parks.

Con el tiempo, he aprendido a armar palabras y colocar acentos, puntuación y signos con la finalidad de darles vida, convertirlas en sueños e ideas y crear mundos entre la razón y los sentidos; pero también los días me han enseñado a dibujar alegría y sonrisas en las caras infantiles, en la gente que amo y en las personas que transitan por las calles y los parques.

Al diluirse las horas, igual que la cera de las velas una noche interminable de tormenta, entendí que del cunero a la cama agónica existen unos cuantos años, determinado número de vueltas de las manecillas en la catátula de los relojes, y que de la misma forma en que se manifiesta la aurora, se expresa el ocaso.

Al inicio y al final es posible que aparezca una flor, un arreglo, un ramillete, y que luzca, lo mismo para la…

Ramp Fever


Wild Geranium in front of ramp

I had heard about ramps from Foodie friends. Allium tricoccum are woodland plants native to the USA and are becoming scarce and increasingly difficult to find. One spring day, 5-6 years ago, I was out shooting woodland wild flowers when I realized I was standing in a huge patch of ramps, or what I thought might be ramps….they looked a lot like the photo I pulled up on my phone…and they smelled of onions. I had to know what my friends were nattering on about.

Ramps appear in spring with the other woodland wildflowers. As the other wildflowers they appear before the trees leaf out. I had a very short trip up north a week ago. My husband had a short gig and I went along to plant some wildflower seeds in open spaces, shoot some spring wildflowers and, hopefully, pick some ramps. You…
