Glimmer of Home

Walking with a friend in the dark is better than walking alone in the light. ~ Helen Keller

In Peace

I think people often come to the synagogue, mosque, the church looking for God, and what we give them is religion. ~Gene Robinson

Good Ol’ Days

The term “good ol’ days” is a sore point for me these days. I picked up a book to understand the history of the city I currently call home. What I expected to find was a way to connect with the culture of the city, and why people are the way they are, and what…

Dubai Skyline

The skyline of Dubai is punctuated with steel buildings that make up for cloudless skies. It’s a modern wonder of the world, and is picturesque in a very neoteric way. Like the Singapores, Tokyos and Shanghais of the world, it makes for a very vivid postcard view, don’t you think?

Up In The Air

I’ll be out of my mind and you’ll be out of ideas pretty soon. So let’s spend the afternoon in a cold hot air balloon. Leave your jacket behind. Lean out and touch the tree tops over town. I can’t wait to kiss the ground wherever we touch back down. ~Owl City, Ocean Eyes

No Wrong Turns

There are no wrong turns, only unexpected paths. ~Mark Nepo Life is incredibly unpredictable, and it shakes you out of your sleepwalking slumber when you least expect it. We tend to become so familiar with routes we take everyday, that be it night or day, you’d know exactly where to go, and how to reach…
