So I am going to preface this by saying I have never blogged about anything -- ever -- so please forgive me if I have the etiquette all wrong.  Not quite a blog, not quite a poem either.  Anyway, here you go:

Like most Americans, I make a two-way commute every day to get to work and back home again. It’s an unfortunate but necessary part of my day that I’m perfectly guilty of writing off as time wasted. The whole time I’m in the car is spent either...

Buying gifts for the people in your life is, obviously, an entire branch of science unto itself. What you’re communicating with your choice of gift is going to be either intentionally or unintentionally heartwarming or frustrating. Knowing which it’...

It's 2001, and I had just clicked 'purchase' on Priceline to buy a one way ticket to India. An audible sigh of relief accompanied that click. I had worked the college library circuit to save up for this post-graduation move. The past nine months had...

I woke up to the reality of interdependence while riding a bus. In a way it’s not surprising that insights might reveal themselves during mass transit. Sitting shoulder-to-shoulder with strangers on the way to work has all the marks of a healthy...
