He played regular tennis, loved to go for long walks and had a full social life. In ’90 he became the representative of an American company selling banking infrastructure. He worked hard and his success didn’t surprise anybody....more

I Think I have Learnt to Accept the Change

I am at the bottom of the ‘career’ options ladder now.  I feel pretty good here. Contrary to the misgiving of others and myself, it’s not been difficult, not numbing. Not easy … but easier than hard. One struggles while coming down the steps. Living high up on the ladder feels good. Bloody madness, but a kick all the same. It’s flattering. One’s ego begins to swell up into a personality so out of reach that one has to dig deep to find the reality. For a lucky few, the reality emerges from within. The struggle then is less prolonged, less exhausting....more

Thirty Days.

If I ever get to resurrect my blog, the entire month of September 2009 will not exist.  This fact somehow feels like a failure, a let-down.It isn't that I didn't do anything of note that month; that I didn't have awkward things happen or notice snide sociological happenings or that my son just was an unremarkable baby.  It's that too much happened, too many things in too short of time....more

Dealing with (Irrational?) Fears in your Relationship

The first time I was truly, madly, deeply in love I began to live with an ongoing fear that something horrible would happen. I envisioned car accidents, deathly illness, and gave fleeting thoughts towards my beloved falling for someone else. The fear would come in flashes that I swatted away like an evil mosquito, and the closest I ever came to telling anyone about it was that I wrote an undoubtedly horrible film short that I only showed a couple people who didn't really get it. So I buried it somewhere amid papers and files, and now I don't even know where it is. ...more
