Public Blogs

Here is a cost-free and compact platform for blogging selfies of your mind, your thoughts, opinions and any aspects of your lifestyle that you wish to share with others.  You can blog under any of the ten ‘umbrella’ categories, which constitute the major chunk of a human being’s day to day NowLife.  You can interact (or not) with other readers.  You can also write privately to publishers of other blogs.  Your blogs will remain permanently on this site.  Over time, they will evolve into your autobiography archived in the digital Library of Minds.  The DMM public forum provides a secure environment for recording your life’s journey in a serious and comprehensible mode.

Ageing

Age creeps up on us all. The only alternative to it is to die young! It occupies a major portion of your life depending on your physical, mental and cognitive health. Your frame of mind defines how you deal with your ageing– ranging from labelling it as God’s Waiting Room to joyfully embracing your Golden Years. Here, you can express your lifestyle and behaviours you have adopted as you age. And share inspirational writings which would be useful to others entering this stage of life.

Relationships

Our life’s journey is marked by family blood, emotional and physical relationships. We love, fight, hurt, reconcile, care…but having relationships is an indelible Rule of Human Evolution. The nature and type of relationships, their beginning and their end, highs and lows, depend on myriad variables. Record here your experiences and thoughts about love, marriage, children, sexuality, lifestyles and other aspects of interactions with loved ones. Leave them behind in your Autobiography on the shelves of the Library of Minds.
