July 5: No Place Like Here

July 7, 2014
  “There is no place else like here.” Ananda-Lahari has spent each of the past 10 summers of his life coming here.  Here to this little half mile block in Queens.  One which looks very much like thousands of others tucked unevenly in and around New York’s often untidy urban sprawl.

July 4: Continuous Self-Transcendence (Utpal)

July 6, 2014

Today is the great American Holiday, Independence Day.  From coast to coast and through all its 50 states  people will be celebrating, enjoying themselves, and perhaps reflecting, if even for a moment what this country at its very heart represents to them. In the grand scheme of time it is a new country compared to many.  Its history just a brief flicker compared to that of much of Europe and Asia.  Yet nearly 230 years ago something new and profound was created here when the 13 original colonies came together and established something the world had never seen before.

July 3: When Good Things Happen (Utpal)

July 4, 2014
Have you ever owned a piece of clothing that you could simply not bare to part with.  Perhaps a great pair of shoes, a hat, or for my generation a pair of blue jeans.  Pants that took weeks of wearing to break in.  To finally feel as though they had become  part of you.  Then they became even better when they faded to the point that they were still blue but only just.

Beads, baubles, and bangles will last a life time but clothing never lasts beyond a certain point.  No matter even if it is your most beloved wearable item.  It will inevitably one day expire from fashion or from function.  Classic fibers, cotton, wool, and silk, simply start to fall apart over time when worn.  Even new high tech clothing will work wonders for perhaps a brief while longer. Then there is the problem of your own personal dimensions.  Perhaps asking the clothing to continue to do what it was supposed to do when you were a size b and now your horizons have expanded to some letter just a little too far down the alphabet to look decent or remain modest. Then there is that special purgatory when the clothing sits befuddled in a closet or in a drawer waiting to make at least one more appearance.  You can’t wear it and you can’t throw it out.  What do you do?
