Petition: Puppies And Kittens Used As Shark Bait

  I LOVE sharks’ fins soup. Period. No amount of persuasion from sharks advocates will prevent me from consuming my occasional Sharks Fin soup. Except this petition!

Happy Woman’s Day

Today is International Woman’s Day! I could pontificate about what makes a modern woman or the international women who most inspire me or how far women have come today.  But let’s not bore you with the obvious.  As I meditated on what it takes to be a woman these days, the image of my maternal grandmother pops […]

New Beginnings Reflection

Bye-bye 2011. Hello 2012.

2011 had been an amazing year for us! Earlier in the year, my husband and I had set a simple but clear intention to maintain a state of happiness and be open to the joys that the Universe deem to bestow upon us throughout the year.
