The Best-Laid Plans

This morning was an excellent reminder of how our plans can be sidetracked. I went to my car to go to work, the usual morning routine, but when I opened the door I noticed that my dome light was a little dimmer than normal. Hmm. Okay. Turn the ignition, dash lights up with a weak glow, but the engine will not turn over. Two things go through my mind: one, I'm  going to be late, two, how is this going…

Today I went the speed limit

Traffic in D.C. metro is one of the worst in the country- if not the worst. Using the Metro is not a practical option when going to my office in Alexandria- so I, like hundreds of thousands of other work-a-bees, hop on the freeways to make the 10.8 mile stretch.


On a typical morning the alarm wakes me at 5:00 a.m. to begin a forty-five minute workout. I am in the shower by 6- out by 6:05 (I am part of the military community so our family adheres to three minute showers), hair…

The Summer Book Club on Kindle is here!

The Summer Book Club  

Remember when going on vacation meant filling your suitcase with hefty volumes that threatened to tip you over the baggage allowance limit? The last minute dash into the airport bookshop and the desperate quest to find something to entertain you on the plane and the beach? 

Thanks to the Kindle and other e-readers, those days are gone. What to take? How do you choose from the hundreds of thousands of books… Continue

Tribulation Point Ricci Lane

I really don’t know why or how, but I have gotten a slew of deep, thought provoking novels lately, “Tribulation Point”  is another one. I want to get right to the synopsis of the novel:

“Abandoned at birth, conceived from a vicious assault on her mother, left on the steps of an orphanage, Precious must also face many other trials from her past. Teased and mocked by the children in the orphanage, she is called "half-n-half." She finds her first love only to lose…

The Lost Queen Mark Miller

Once in a while I think I find a gem, something maybe some people have seen, but really hasn’t found the audience it deserves yet. “The Lost Queen” is one of those works.   It as a YA novel, is part of The Empyrical Tales series, and it is fun , innovative and flat out well written. Yeah how do I really feel about it huh? Here is what is between the covers on this:

“Zandria and Olena continue their adventures in the land of Empyrean. Zandria discovers a magical…

How do most countries deal with dual disasters?

When countries have an existing violent or poverty-stricken track record, how do they protect themselves from a natural disaster? Focusing specifically on Sri Lanka and Indonesia, Dual Disasters by Jennifer Hyndman describes what happens when "man-made" and "natural" disasters meet; and how the tsunami's arrival from 2004 shifted the goals of international aid, altered relations and accelerated or slowed peacebuilding efforts.…

How Much Do You Know about Politics in India?

If you want to know all about the civil society sector in India, then The Politics of Collective Advocacy in India is the book for you.

Wish to Hek Reviews: Universal Studios, Orlando

     I’m releasing my inner geek here. I know I normally write a review about books in this blog but I wanted to change it up somewhat.  If you want a cool, different from the norm book, read the oldie but goodie, My Bondage and My Freedom: The Autobiography of Frederick Douglass.  It is devastating to read how a slave was treated back in the early history of the U.S.  As a teacher I like to keep up with some…

Prolonging The Magic: Capturing Emotion

Another day, another dime. And various other cliches about climbing back on the treadmill and getting back to it. Today may not be my most brilliant entry, as I didn't sleep well and still haven't completely woken up, but the point of this blog is to prepare myself for my writing day, so away we go.

Seeing as the mental gears aren't all clicking together just yet, I thought I'd take an opportunity to dip back into the same …
