A good friend, well traveled and educated, views the evils of globalization in very simple terms. It's a world in which everyone drinks coffee at Starbucks and eats at McDonald's and listens to Lady Gaga. That is to say, he sees globalization as synonymous to Americanization, and it depresses him...

Well, I sometimes feel spoiled because I have an absolutely wonderful writing room, a windowed balcony filled with tons and tons of plants, but then other times, that beautiful room turns into a distraction. I find myself daydreaming, looking at my plants, or tending to them, looking out the...

Oh you get the point huh :-) Part of being a creature of habit is where I do my...
