Ahead of My Time

April 6, 2013

It’s not that unusual to lose track of the time when faced with a full schedule. I’m rarely late for appointments, something I value in other people too. Given a choice, it’s better to lose track of the time when having fun. This week, however, I lost track of multiple appointments over a couple of days – […]

Spring is Riz – and This is How the Garden Iz

“There is a way that nature speaks, that land speaks. Most of the time we are simply not patient enough, quiet enough, to pay attention to the story.” – Linda Hogan Alleluia, the waiting seems to finally be over! Not only has Easter been a celebration of joy and rebirth, but Spring has also arrived […]

And Baby Takes the Prize

March 25, 2013

As someone who has been out of the loop as far as attending baby showers up until two years ago, and having recently attended another one, I observed a few interesting changes in the whole affair.

I start this posting on an uncharacteristicly serious note. It is because my father was lost to Alzheimer’s disease for over a decade before his passing in 1998, that I intentionally spend some part of each day focused on mental exercises. As a result, the “use it or lose it” philosophy has been drilled into my subconscious.

A Wandering Mind Follows No Set Path

It’s been one of those mindless, unproductive afternoons, staring out my office window, imagining that the snow is all gone from the garden, the waterfall is happily gurgling away, I’ve cleared the office paperwork, and I’m awaiting a dinner invitation to that fancy French bistro in town. (Hey, I can dream, can’t I?!) Although none of […]
