Books and Me!

Hello! I apologise in advance if I ramble or make no sense in this post today  – will make no difference from normal I’m sure! – but I got up at silly o’clock this morning to watch a steam train whizz through the local train station for 30 seconds, and am now feeling it! Is […]

Loosened feathers slowly fell on Kristjana’s tufted quilt, smallish fingers curled softly wrapping silk as she slept.  Drifts and rolls of undulate slumbers  under haloed day-like night sky In Iceland’s Elliðaárdalur valley near Reykjavik,  closed elven eyes. Kristjana’s dream, a whimsical flight on puffin wings, his tuxedo plumage beating speed orange-red beak sonar soared homing […]

I heard my first Bell when my Grandmother yelled as i ran out the door, “Don’t run, you’ll fall and hurt yourself” Many years later she informed me that as a young child she was afraid to let go of me because i would quickly run away from her. While living on the farm, I […]

Let me begin by saying that I so badly wanted to enjoy this book, that I didn’t. After a few too many autobiographies I finally set sail to return to the beloved fantasy genre (my last venture shipwrecked with Jack London’s disappointing Call of the Wild). I’ll be frank, navigating through this story was not […]

Love Is The Darkest Art A Dramione fanfic serial Scene 19: Across the vegetable patches, something moved. Not quite a shadow. Certainly not a breeze. Still, everything avoided it.

photos by Melissa Clarke The barefoot Todd Snider led a spellbound audience through meaningful observation, dreams, songs, and sidesplitting laughter last Monday night at the Birchmere in Alexandria, Virginia. Although Snider told the packed room his songs were never serious, they absolutely are. It’s just that he has a singular knack for approaching even grave […]

Masala chai: Musings about little people

In the year 2013, I was approached to write Dr. Anandalakshmy’s biography for a publication on ‘Eminent Indian Psychologists’. I was both delighted and daunted by the responsibility, but greatly enjoyed writing this essay with inputs from Neerja Sharma and Dipali Taneja (thank you). This draft version is in fact, the final submitted to the editors with Dr. Anandalakshmy’s approval. Unfortunately, the editors of the volume believed that its rather unique format didn’t fit in with the rest of the volume and required ‘correction’. They proceeded to make dramatic (read disastrous) changes while retaining the ‘facts’. We were given the “choice” to approve or quit! With a great deal of reluctance, both of us agreed and it is now available in print. I believe that the final version lacks soul and for some years now, I have been sitting with this essay wondering when and where to place it for others to read. Here it is for you.
