The Other Way

Photo: Frederick Tubiermont


If you’ve made enemies at some point in your life,
it will usually be because of one of two things.
You’ve either been an asshole,
or you’ve stood against those who’ve been assholes.
If it’s the second one,
and I hope it is,
you’ll have more friends than enemies,
although you... Read more of this blog post »

Mango Treasure Hunt

The glaring hot Caribbean sun is losing its lustrous heat, at least from where I am sitting on the mound of yellow dirt, tracking the movement of my shadow. Once my shadow is directly beneath me, I will know there is enough shade, but even now I feel the cool breeze drying my sweat. It is Friday...

Varanasi Poem: Time and Life to Death

[image error]


Filth, they call it ubiquitous;

obnoxious. On streets,

in heaps, in lanes, scattered.

Life goes daily, usually on,

oblivious of filth,

or death,

goes on with ease.

Unfettered feet, undaunted –

of pilgrims, of people,

with purpose, or strollers

The timeless lanes,

narrow, space ampl...

I received my first cell phone on my sixteenth birthday and, of course, I was overly excited. The first thing I did was call all my friends and made sure my parents had the number and then I went into texting my best friend.

There’s lots of great fiction that’s a pure escape from reality. And I’ve often sought it out when I needed a self-care respite from all that’s going on in this world that feels overwhelming and monumentally sad. As a fond reader of historical fiction and fantasy, I appreciate how im...

Mother Coffee (Poem)

As up she flows,
Together grand,
Distinct roles sparkling,
Nectar of Bean,
Elixir of Mind,
Biting tender on roof & tongue,
Alive with tingling note,
Bursting forth in velvet shine.

Dublin crime novelist Tana French has the kind of critical reviews that other writers would…well, die for. Her debut murder mystery, In the Woods , won rave reviews and multiple literary prizes upon its release in 2007. Since then, her books have tended to haunt the bestseller lists, on both sides of the pond, and for months at a time. British newspaper The Independent has dubbed French "The First Lady of Irish Crime," and The Washington Post says she is the most important crime novelist to emerge in the past ten years. ...more
