“I was I once myself a swinger of birches. And so I dream of going back to be. It’s when I’m weary of considerations, And life is too much like a pathless wood… I’d like to get away from earth awhile And then come back to it and begin over.” -“Birches” by Robert Frost- ToContinue reading “Love In The Time Of Corona: What’s Fun Got To Do With It?”
“In daylights, in sunsets, in midnights, in cups of coffee; in inches, in miles, in laughter, in strife…How do you measure the life of a woman or a man?” ~”Seasons of Love” from RENT, the Musical~ I hear this song playing on loop in my head a lot these days, as I look over myContinue reading “Love In The Time Of Corona: How Do You Measure A Year?”
I saw a meme of a frazzled Chris Farley that perfectly sums up my sentiments after the past five days: “I’m getting a little tired of living through ‘historical events’.” I think we can all agree that this week (Feb 22-26), we proved, yet again, that everything is bigger in Texas.

What if I…had only known that everything was going to end so abruptly last spring and alter the course of my days, as aContinue reading “Love In The Time Of Corona: Knew Then, Know Now”
Tonight, I bid you adieu, 2020. But I will not forget. Like a Gatsby party full of bacchanalian romps, too-eager partygoers ushered in this next decade with all the wonderment of a new era. There was such hope and eagerness for progress, on all fronts—moral, spiritual, ecological, judicial, global, national, and personal. The confetti rainedContinue reading “Love In The Time Of Corona: Should Old Acquaintance Be Forgot?”
The title of tonight’s musing certainly sounds like something out of a Lewis Carroll novel, but in the radio silence of my last month without chronicling, I’ve discovered that, what really felt like pivoting, was, in fact, just me trying to go up the down staircase. M.C. Escher had the same idea in her lithograph,Continue reading “Love In The Time Of Corona: Up the Down Staircase”
The day grew shorter today, as we said goodbye to another hour of sunlight to dance in, and hello to the chilly mystery of night. Tonight, as every one before it has come and gone, we began our ritual, one that I look forward to, and will never forget.

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of light, it was the season of darkness, it was the spring of hope, itContinue reading “Love In The Time Of Corona: The Best/Worst Of Times”
