Happy April, my friends!  So comes the end of March.  The end of March and thus the transition of seasons comes with so many holidays and celebrations, though most of them are still best spent distanced this year, so I hope everyone was safe and careful.  It’s a bit belated, but… To all my Christian friends and followers, a belated very happy Easter! To the Jewish community, belated chag sameach!  I hope you all had a wonderful Passover. To the Indian community – a belated happy Holi!  May the colors of happiness, prosperity, and love rain down upon each and […]

  I really liked the setting and basic structure behind 96 Words for Love, but I think the novel got a little bit lost in itself.  This book did not seem to know whether it was telling the story of Raya trying to find her purpose in life, a treasure hunt for a meaningful gift left by her grandmother, the line between Raya’s world and the part of India where the ashram was and learning and privilege… or just a love story.  96 Words for Love did each one of these things about… 25%. The turns in the story felt really convenient.  There […]

Welcome to the first wrap up of 2021, where we get to look at everything that got rolling as the new year started and we can celebrate how strikingly different everything is now that it’s not 2020 anymore! I kid, of course, because we still have all the same things to work on as we did in 2020, all the same concerns and challenges and opportunities for growth.  But the psychology of hope is nice, right?  For myself, 2021 hasn’t been too bad on a personal level, and for that I’m truly grateful.  Still, there’s the continued opportunity to do […]

Y’all, I want to apologize in advance for the March and April wrap ups – Matt and I picked up the keys to our new apartment on Wednesday, so now we are 100% about moving, packing, unpacking, the works.  Nearly all my other posts for the next two months have been pre-scheduled, but the wrap ups I usually do the weekend before, because I think it’s important they’re fresh. The March and April wrap up are going to be missing some bits and pieces that take me a little while longer to go through and talk about, but I promise […]
