A New Year

This morning Facebook reminded me of my blog post from a year ago today.  I was on my way to Texas to start a new chapter in life. This blog was going to blossom and thrive as each new day in a new life unfolded. And then it didn’t. I got homesick and depressed. Countless…

The Versatile Blogger Award

Heartfelt thanks and appreciation to Aishwariya for this nomination!  I am grateful to her and all those who take time from their day to read what I write.  It warms my heart and certainly motivates me to improve!

I am having withdrawals. One more challenge to…

Waking Up To WordPress

BEEP!BEEP!BEEP!  The alarm is set to go off at 7am. Wide awake I am…at 6:30.  Always hoping for that last half hour of sleep. …And right away I am thinking!  Yes, fully engaged in thought.  Not just the small stuff either.  It’s the depth first search (DFS) algorithm.  Autopilot directs me to the kitchen for…
