Draw from the Well

Draw from the Well

As a child, my family would spend about six weeks every other summer at my grandparents’ house. They lived in a very small village in Kerala, India. I remember playing with rocks, trying to kill larger than life spiders, bumpy car rides and drinking Tang made with […]

Stay With Me

Stay With Me

This past week, the lights went out in my daughter’s room, and it has not been an easy fix.  She has no problem with that, though, because it means she doesn’t have to sleep in her own room, which she is absolutely thrilled about. While her brothers […]
