Dog I love you pillow

Though I’m still happily single (see 2012′s My Happily Single February 14th, 2012 and 2013′s Another Happily Single Valentine’s Day), I think something important is overlooked on this holiday of love.

While in Cyprus I had the opportunity to work with a breathworker for the first time. To summarize, breathworkers help people connect within (the soul, cousciousness, whatever you want to call it) and work through their issues. It’s all natural, no plants or drugs are used, and it’s truly something to experience. There are many […]

Anibal thumb

Anibal. If you say that name in North Cyprus everyone knows who you are talking about. He’s a living legend. It wasn’t always the case though.

In Kochi, Kerala I was walking down the street one evening to get some dinner. The street was narrow, but there was a functioning sidewalk – a bit of a rarity for India. I was walking behind two ladies. I’d guess they were in their 50′s and both were easily identifiable as Muslims from their […]
