This time, it was a documentary from Pilgrim Films about a Buddhist monk who started a home for unwanted children. Tashi and the Monk is filled with the sound of children laughing, playing, learning and healing. I rejoiced in […]

Last weekend, I joined my family at Grand Lake for our annual long weekend at the lake. Every year we rent a house at Candlywyck Cove Resort (and a hotel room or two) and spend the weekend laughing, eating, swimming, fishing and playing dominos (and any other games we can come up with). My dad and his […]
