    Canadian comedian Russell Peters jokes that he was a rah-rah Indian until he flew to India for the first time and took one step off the plane. Assaulted by smells, noise and crowds, he realized in that instant that he was Canadian. For me, it took a visit to the UK and a residence...

    Please note: this Tuesday and Thursday blog will now post only on Tuesdays.   Forgive the untidiness of this post. I haven’t quite sorted things out, but here are 3 musings this week. I’m still working out if they are related, and if it is worth going there. (1) Of all the thoughts to...

    We all feel loved in different ways, and for me, being known is high on the list.
