My work is my Life. My talents in counseling and writing are an integral part of my psyche. The concept of work is not a part of my life but an everyday learning process; work becomes an unfolding of my ideals mixed with a genuine desire to provide service with compassion. When I was growing up...

  Surely, it is yet another new unfolding dawn on a journey in time, experience and circumstances we all value as life. As we all know, this journey called life is quite trying. So, this new morning, let me humbly say: Beloved Red Room Friends, Neighbors, Associates and All Red Room Members...

Do your feet ever feel heavy? So heavy that it takes effort to lift them from the ground and walk into the unknown? What about your ear lobes and the back of your head, the nape where you hair falls in oceans of seaweed across your skin, unseen skin,  where no one dares to go? Brows can be heavy...

                This is among the top ten of my all-time favourite poems and one I have enjoyed performing during this season. I love the fact that when centrally aligned, the words form the shape of a galleon on voyage.   The Journey of the Magi (in...

Why don’t you have Indian breakfast? I don’t know what Indian breakfast is. Does it have a stamp? The cereal crunches in the bowl like dried leaves underfoot. Milk is not cold enough, not hot enough. Room temperature, we say. What is room temperature? It changes everyday. Brown and white mix...

Happiness is elusive and intangible. Its a word that I have found at times quite replusive. For a lot of selfish acts are done in the name of one seeking "their Happiness". What is the root of that word?. I could look it up but alas its not in me to do so now or really ever. Not sure how...

I used to wish for a happy family when I blew out the candles on my birthday cake, until one grandson began finding happiness in a dangerous fashion. From then on, I wished for personal happiness, which meant my family would be happy, thus relieving me of empathetic sadness, but through means of...

Happiness is not an idea, or something that floats above our heads, kind of like a cartoon bubble, that we fill with whatever we want it to mean, or at least, think it should mean.   Happiness is not wealth, belongings, or the right job.   Happiness is not found in a product from a...
