8 Days in Kolkata – The City of Joy

It was remarkable really… and as it was with my first trip to India, entirely too short and completely overwhelming. Kolkata (Calcutta) has a certain energy or vibe that I’ve not experienced anywhere else. It’s quirky with all the lanes and the rickshaws and the old trams and mismatched architecture.

I speak to Indians almost […]

Generations

Still moving forward and getting caught up here. I mentioned last time that I had some things coming up over the next few months.

In a string of candid interviews we learn something about each family’s history, their […]

Evolution

I love that word Evolution. To change, to grow, to evolve. Idealy we should continuously be moving forward, growing and learning. That’s easier said than done of course because try as we might, sometimes we just stall out. We hit a wall creatively and can’t seem to get around it. Writer’s block is a term most of […]
