  Be careful what you ask for, you just might get it: Your words, your dreams, and your thoughts have power to create conditions in your life. What you speak about, you can bring about. If you keep saying you can’t stand your job, you might lose your job. If you keep saying you can’t stand...

Keeping to today's mantra to be flexible, I worked late, powering through some things, not stopping until 6 PM despite my wife's pointed comments about the length of my work day.  We ate black bean salads for dinner, one of my favorite, and then I drank some herbal tea with honey.  ...

A short story I’d written some time ago: Twenty year old Piya was troubled when she picked up the phone to call her best friend, Ramya Thiyagarajan. She knew she was in for a scolding as soon as Ramya knows what she was up to the past whole week. Piya herself wasn’t proud of what she’d done, but...

For the past three days, I've been trying to figure out why this song has been running through my head. It first reared its head maybe a month or two ago. I chalked it up to nostalgia—although since 1982 was seventh grade in middle school for me, I have very little love left or lost for the place...
