Mein fast drei Jahre alter Blogpost über die Zahl der von mir besuchten Länder erfordert bald eine Aktualisierung. Am 11. August 2019 werde ich (wahrscheinlich/hoffentlich) gegen 15 Uhr auf dem Flugplatz in Dublin ein weiteres Land betreten: Irland. Es wäre das Neunzehnte.

I’m not sure that a brand has ever landed in the U.K with as much fanfare as Glossier did. As a lover of all things glossy, ‘no makeup’ makeup and a sucker for packaging, I was there bustling to the front of the queue – heck, I even paid for a sweatshirt with their branding […] Read more of this blog post »
I don’t like to write bad reviews. I am a very reasonable person when it comes to service mishaps, booking mistakes, etc. In fact, I am the type that rarely speaks up when something isn’t quite right during a vacation. I grin and bear it, do my best to avoid conflict, and file the irksome issue a...Read more of this blog post »
দিন যেন আর কাটতে চায় না। সমপদের পাহাড় গুছিয়ে রাখার কাজে নেমে পড়ল বামনরা, মূলয এবং আকার অনুযায়ী ভাগ করে রাখছে। সেই সাথে খুঁজছে আরকেনসটোনটা, থোরিন পই পই করে বলে দিয়েছে জিনিসটা খুঁজে বের করার জনয। ‘ওই মহামূলযবান পাথরটা আমার, শুধু আমার!’ বলেছে সে। ‘যদি দেখি যে কেউ ওটা আমার কাছ থেকে লুকিয়ে রেখেছে তবে...Read more of this blog post »

As my Facebook feed got overloaded with people posting their resolutions for 2019, I couldn’t help wonder why would some people be so unsatisfied with the way they live their own lives.

I read the stories below yesterday, on a train to Valencia (a beautiful city — more on which shortly). I couldn’t get a wifi connection in my hotel, so I couldn’t post this last night. That’s probably for the best; I’ve had more time to think about it. Which, in this case, has not moderated my op...Read more of this blog post »

Heroes are great and all, but we know that everyone loves a good villain.

This morning, as I walked around Fresh Pond, a hoard of runners came upon me and cut me off as they turned left into the parking lot. “Sorry!” One of the women giggled.

So I’m a firm believer in transparency of process. Stories and books can and do go through a million iterations before they hit the presses, and first drafts are most often garbage. That is, I am told, the purpose of first drafts, to be hot steaming August rat fuel.

“Opera is boring.”One of the biggest reasons people won’t even listen to opera. Carmen—probably my favorite opera—is anything but. Ill-fated, star-crossed lovers, who manage to destroy each other.

The refrain is loud and getting louder. Somehow, in one of the grandest ironies in
