Bhakti Shravana 108

Sataka 9 1 When, laughing, dancing, singing, the hairs of my body erect, my eyes filled with tears, my body stunned, covered with perspiration, and displaying the various symptoms of very sweet devotional ecstasy, will I, continually remembering my beloved Sri Sri Radha-Krishna, and mad with ecstatic love, continually reside in Vrindavana? Vers 1 Wenn […]

Did somebody say eat? All I have to do is mention food in a column and I will hear from enough readers to polish off an all-you-can-eat buffet. They’re kind enough to say they like my column, but what they really want is a recipe. Not that I blame them. I like food, too. Especially […]

Some days, the companies and people making business news might be a bit obscure to the Wall Street novice. Not on this day, though.

A Landing a Day

First timer?  In this formerly once-a-day blog (and now pretty much a once-a-week blog), I use an app that provides a random latitude and longitude that puts me somewhere in the continental United States (the lower 48).  I call this “landing.” I keep track of the watersheds I land in, as well as the town […]
