The fact that I’m not wearing one is proof that … More Here’s To Progress: An Ode to 2013.
When you are half the globe away but privy, always, to the ongoings that occur in the family home – it is so damn difficult.

A Positive First Impression on Prime Minister & I!
Why do we agonize over the past? Why do our minds, like clockwork, return to the same twelve ‘o clock upright position, full of longing? I tried to rifle through my mental compartments yesterday, fiddling through arrays of our conversations from yesteryears. I tried to return to seven years ago when I was only … More “you’re there.”
I’m back from Sin City and I’m now officially into the second week of my break! First and foremost, thank you for the kind words and support.
