It’s Good To Be Home

  Just landed at JFK and in the car in the way home (no, I am not driving). I was away in in birth land for five days to visit my mother and the heat was ridiculous. Most people would be envious of being in a hot climate, but when you have heart problems and need…

Should Old Friendships Just Be Allowed To Die Naturally?

  As I head back to my birth land, I ponder past friendships that have slipped away over distance and time, and whether or not I should reach out to my childhood best friends. I met them, a brother and sister, when I was six, he was four and she was two. They lived around the…

Looks Like A Good Day To Fly

  I am sitting at the departure gate of JetBlue at JFK waiting to board my flight back to the motherland. The last time I was back in my birth land was is 2012 for 48 hours for my mother’s-in-law funeral and I didn’t really see anything. I was in and I was out.  The last…

Do Ape Men Design Timed Faucets?

I am a major germaphobe when it comes to using a public restroom. I wash my hands and I only touch anything after that, including turning off the tap, with clean paper towel. Needless to say I detest using a bathroom with those hand dryers.  The thing that I find really annoying are those “timed”…

Yesterday I was trolling WordPress in one of my few moments of down time and was reading a blog post over at a blog I do not subscribe to, when I found the post vaguely familiar. The more I read the post, I realized that I read this some where else before. The more I…

Snapshots Of My Life: Nobody Puts Me Out Of An Aisle

I was at Home Depot today and if you have ever been there, they love to close oof a lane to do something or the other. I understand that it is for the safety of the customers, but why do that during store hours? Anyway, I was looking for nails and they closed off the…

Life Is Such A Roller Coaster Ride

Life in general, and especially when you have a chronic condition, is a roller coaster ride, isn't it? It seems that when ever anything good is happening, everything good happens. And then something negative rolls in, and it seems everything goes down hill. Earlier this year, I was on the crest of the ride. Everything…
