the curator of us

Scott used to love telling the story of how we met. His great friend Joe Gantz–creator of the hit television series on HBO Taxicab Confessions, among other documentaries–and my friend, Joe’s wife then-blogger/now-novelist Corine Gantz, introduced us. Little did any of us know at the time that these two were setting us up for an incredible journey […]

happy birthday, loolie

Today would have been Loolie’s 13th birthday. The two Rons, my friends in LA,  sent me this poem by Robinson Jeffers. I will read it aloud at Sand Beach when I scatter Loolie’s ashes. I am not lonely. I am not afraid. I am still yours. The House Dog’s Grave (Haig, an English bulldog) I’ve […]

It’s a device and app to provide global hotspot coverage at an affordable price. Remember when Alan came to Goa on his spring break and saw Scott and me? (click here). I know Scott would […]

artorium

Over 4 years back, it was difficult to source art materials in Goa. I wrote at the time that The Art Shoppe was the only art store around for art supplies. Since then, Panjim is bustling with activity: a gigantic super bridge is being constructed over the river, Manipol Hospital has a fancy new facility…and, […]
