Bio: Hi! My name is Reni (Renica Rego to be precise). If you’ve found me, it means something. That’s how I am. Always trying to join the dots; connecting people, experiences, thoughts and feelings. My intention is to simplify things, but many times I end up with just the opposite. So yes, I’m a work-in-progress. I'm also a dreamer, the kind who falls in love with places never seen and people never met. I love life and everything that fills it. The exotic is great, but the mundane can be interesting too. That’s exactly what my writing is all about. I started this blog when I was going through a dark phase; which only proves the cloud and silver lining theory. I'm obsessed with finding beauty in everything. To me, life is an assortment of charming little things. Giggling mindlessly, getting high on music, slurping on a rapidly melting ice cream, penning lyrics to songs that have yet to find melody, creating a mess, creating beautiful things, admiring nature, connecting with family, friends and strangers… all of it makes me happy. I write straight from the heart. My dormant confidence surfaced when I started believing that ‘everyone comes from somewhere’. It's an idea that sustains me and gives me the courage to write. My work has appeared in a number of publications including The Times of India, Khaleej Times, Gulf News, Bonobology and Chicken Soup for the Entrepreneur’s Soul. But that’s just stats. What’s important is this. That I allow life to teach me lessons, that I graciously live my experiences and that I express all that through my writing. Because life is for tender kisses, random adventures, rambling conversations and warm hugs. Because life is simple.
