A Quest on Overdrive … :)

An eccentric rambler on life's lessons and mercies, found and lost… :)



Some words are like that, you love to say them, use them every which way you can, and they mean more than their meaning 🙂 Sometimes you need just that word, that sounds so good, and means so much to be able to say just what you really want to. It took me a while but yeah, I found this one 🙂 ❤

Enchanté, in French, has lovely sound, and a lovelier meaning. As is obvious, it being close to the English word too, it speaks of delight and enchantment, it speaks of a special person who delights, always has and who is enchanting, is living an enchanted time of her life right now 🙂 ❤

I’ve spoken too, of the connection we’ve had, her and me (LINK) (That link kind of takes off to a whole lot of other links too 😛 )

She has to be one of the most passionate writers I know, an awesome teacher too, with the subjects she chooses to write on ranging from animals, her pet, children, teaching, the Services, her being part of that family, first-borns and friends, freedom and fun writes, poetry and politics…

Sample this from a post of hers… (LINK)

“Just a request, please if you can , if you have a conscience , fight for OROP, fight for the benefits that are a soldier’s due. Fight for something concrete. The soldier is tired of these intangibles like izzat and aan.
Give him tangibles. His pay, his pension which should match the magnitude of service that he does for a thankless country.

Make the armed forces a votebank and see how miraculously, almost as if overnight, all their demands will be listened to.

I had the same lament years back. I have the same lament now


Pssst… when you have the time, you’ll certainly want to meet her through her words, each and every passionate one she writes 🙂 (HERE)

This year is special for her, special in a way that can be the specialest in a person’s life, when they look forward to welcoming more love into their lives 🙂 In this case, Love came wrapped in gurgles, milky burps, giggles, more coos and smiles that she could count 🙂 ❤ So, it’s kind of like, I’m celebrating her first birthday, this femme enchanté 🙂 (Anybody who knows French, who is currently reading this, and knows -for sure, ‘coz I ain’t in the know 😛 – is to read, and move on EVEN if they find it awful 😀 😀 )

Meggie, Indyeah, Abby, Abhilasha, as I call her, at varying times, celebrates her first birthday, as a mother, a new identity to wear, which in any case will only add to the warmth, the love and passion she has, which is going to be way way stronger with the young ‘un 🙂 His shall be the feet that guide, as his heart is the one that will be held in the palms of his dadda and momma, as they all journey onward through the beauteous paths of life 🙂

I love this picture of her little one, her darling boy, a simple yet telling one ❤ ❤



Happy birthday Meggie dearest! I know this will be the best yet 🙂 May you have so many many more with your loved ones, with all the love, laughter and happiness a heart can hold. And then some. ❤

  1. Thank you so much for this gift Ushus. One that you keep giving me in new forms and ways each year. Actually thank you seems too small a word. Too common perhaps. But then I don’t know how to convey all the love that I feel and that moment when I have thoatthose tears of joy in my eyes…astounded as to how a friend ao far away knows what I must be feeling…all that I must be going through…..this birthday is the most special one yet and will remain the m
    most special one always…for I am a mother now and I could never have given words to those feelings the way you have for me… how do you manage to do it dear heart? Each and every time.love you
