I’ve had a lot of time to consider this and there are just several things I loooove about children, many of which actually challenge me. To be sure, a number of us wish for the simpler days of childhood, and it is easy to fantasize (and even glamorize!) those days, but one thing that has…Read more Children teach Us

Bright Hopes for Tomorrow
Guys, no joke, 2020 was maaad. It ran like a crazy train till the very end, actually! All of us were really thankful to have lived to see the end and yet to have maintained our sanity.

From a pandemic to politics to racism to the MeToo movement and how it plays out, it is a lot. I’ve therefore thought a lot both about both…Read more The Fight for Identity

One man awake, Awakens another. The second awakens His next door brother. The three awake can rouse a town By turning the whole place Upside down The many awake Can cause such a fuss It finally awakens the rest of us. One man up, With dawn in his eyes Surely then Multiplies. ~ Lawrence Tribble…Read more Still sleeping?
Who are YOU becoming?
Day whatever of being locked in with this coronavirus pandemic. I’m sure that you, like many others, have gone through various emotional/psychological stages of being. Maybe you’ve finally accepted the state of things, or are still wrestling with feelings of being stuck. All very real experiences. All I’ve gone through or sometimes still am. I’ve…Read more Who are YOU becoming?
