For me, the decision to set the story of Just Like Gravity in Scotland was […]

Our Malaysian Indian American Dream

My husband, though now Christian, was raised Hindu in the Muslim country of Malaysia. Ha! Does that make your head spin? In this week’s post, I’m going to take you with me to the foreign land of Malaysia. To the country where my husband lived before pursuing his American Dream with me. Malaysia is a modern country and an amazing place to visit. The food is INCREDIBLE...just ask Anthony Bourdain. The scenery […]

Behind the Scenes

One of my bucket list items was crossed off last year when my daughter got married. I had dreamed of this day since she was born, even imaging her future husband and the ceremony. Blah, blah, blah. It wasn’t the ceremony I had imagined, it was better. And he wasn’t the groom I had imagined, he was better. And almost year later I still concur. Amy and Kevin were married […]

Unplugged

Every once in a while I need to unplug, turn down the noise, and take some time to unwind. This past weekend was one of those times. We loaded the old family truckster and headed to the wild, blue yonder, just my husband, the two dogs, and me. A couple of the locals The actual road trip isn’t all that peaceful because the 18 year-old lab mix does not travel […]

My Experience with World Religion: Judaism

Judaism. Of all the faiths, it seems like the Jews have had the toughest go of it with regards to religious freedom. Throughout ancient history and into the modern day, the Jewish people have faced persecution and have even had to fight for their lives. All for being Jewish. Which brings me to a very humbling experience that I had at a place where that sort of persecution happened to […]

My Experience with World Religion: Islam

Disclaimer: This was an incredibly difficult post to write. First off, Islam has so much controversy surrounding it: Jihad, 9-11, suicide bombings, and the list goes on.
