Small days and nights begins with a simple premise that becomes a harrowing study of dissatisfaction and affiliation. The half-Italian, half-Indian narrator Grazia lives in rural Pondicherry in India, where "rice fields and swimming pools gleam at the foot of the brown hills". At the edges of their physical territory, politicians, greedy real estate developers, […]

Here is time stood still.  Sorted, labelled, numbered and dated, bundled in an order determined by distance and purpose – letters between my mother, Jacqueline and my father, Patrick.  They span just a little more than a decade – from 1955 until 1966.  Yes, they chronicle a love that has endured until today – the beginnings […]

January came and went and there was no post. It’s now April, and here I go. I guess this is the perfect example of how ‘me time’ operates in parenthood. As in, it really doesn’t if you don’t fight for it. Before I became a parent, I didn’t lead an incredibly social life. I wasn’t […]

Just a week after the world was profoundly touched by ecumenical expressions of faith in the aftermath of the fire that ravaged Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, it’s now horrified by a very different manifestation of faith as savages slaughtered more than 200 worshipers and tourists on Easter Sunday in Sri Lanka. It’s madness, compounded by the fact those deranged perpetrators, like kamikaze pilots, were willing to die for their toxic beliefs, regarding their deaths as the greatest of personal glories. How do you rationally deal with irrational barbarians? It’s one thing to quarrel over political and philosophical differences, including territorial boundaries, but when faith is at the wheel calling the shots there’s not much movement on either side because positions are seen as moral imperatives, making them virtually non-negotiable. How would you appeal to a John C. Salvi III who told a Planned Parenthood worker in Brookline to “pray the rosary!” before executing her? How would you appeal to demonic hijackers who wiped out nearly 3,000 innocent victims? Where would a skilled negotiator begin the conversation? It was a passionate rabbinical student named Yigal Amir who assassinated Israeli prime minister Yitzhak Rabin, believing the Oslo Accords, for which Rabin was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize, were not in keeping with God’s plans as he understood them. Years ago, when televangelists Jimmy Swaggart, Jim Bakker and Oral Roberts all shamed themselves simultaneously, a cartoonist captured that sordidness by picturing God in heaven, looking at the three of them together on the covers of Time, Newsweek and U.S. News & World reports, and telling Himself, “I’ve been misquoted!” Indeed, the Almighty is the most misquoted entity in the world, which is ironic when you consider the gist of His message — at least as we understand it in Christianity — is redemption, love and forgiveness. The insanity of war was never better illustrated than on Christmas Eve 1914 when German and British troops took a break from trying to kill each other after a German officer began singing, “Stille Nacht! Heilige Nacht!” The words might have been unfamiliar but the enemy certainly knew the melody, so all along the trenches weapons were laid down as troops on both sides began softly singing, “Silent Night, Holy Night.” After the brief truce, the shooting resumed. More than a century later we’ve learned nothing. So now we add Sri Lanka to that growing list of “religious” atrocities. Surely, this is not what Easter is all about.
