From time to time, I am bewildered by how it takes me an inordinate amount of time to understand intentions or certain things people do. For all my powers of observation that be, I am pretty dense sometimes. Genuinely, I am like that cartoon character in shows who understands the event long after it has... Continue Reading →
Like a Prayer
Tiny Beautiful Things There was Wild starring Reese Witherspoon. Before that, there was this piece on BrainPickings about how to write like a motherfucker. Before that, there was an overwhelming expansion of the heart while reading Tiny Beautiful Things: Advice on Love and Life from Dear Sugar. And much, much before that was the dear...

According to a Brainpicking's post, Steinbeck kept a diary while writing this... Continue Reading →

It has been an absolutely awful day. Nothing could salvage it - not a walk near a fountain, not the butterscotch ice cream, and not even french fries. In the larger scheme of things, I know that it won't matter and this day will be inconsequential. That I didn't pick up the threads and tie... Continue Reading →
