I’ve done some shit in my life. Some good, some bad.  Some people I may have helped, some people I’ve definitely hurt. Made some friends, some enemies.

Happy New Year Pravir, I wish more peace and happiness for you this year.  Time is a concept that none of us really understand.  How one moment actually changes to the next.  Why space exists, why movement exists, why all of this has created all of us?  What is it all supposed to be about, […]

Wow! I got seriously tagged with an act of anonymous kindness last week. Actually,”seriously pummeled” with kindness is more like it. I spent 26 days at a meditation retreat, mainly to begin the process of self purification through self discovery…I guess you could call it a renovation of the interior walls of my mind. As […]

Dude, where’s my car?

I walked outside late in the afternoon. These days I typically slept in – being unemployed has many benefits. The sun was beaming down on us as it always does. It was mildly cloudy, mildly windy… all in all, it was the perfect day. I stepped outside the apartment complex. I thought of my best […]
