afterlife 2

This morning I went to an interview. I was interviewing at the school district to teach a series of Continuing Ed courses. The Director of the Continuing Ed Program was a very nice gentleman…suave, polished, and kind. He asked very good questions, questions I enjoyed responding to because I am passionate about what I teach. […]

Till we meet again…

afterlife

There’s no hiding from the Universe. Within days of starting this blog, I have been faced with the sad passing of a dear friend’s husband in Chennai, India. Our kids–eighteen-year-olds now–have been best friends since fourth grade. It was uncanny, the timing of it: precisely five days after my first blog entry. The irony is how […]
