These are the best glasses for every face shape—be it round, oval, heart, or square

So while you no longer need to hide your less-than-20/20-vision behind contact lenses, one problem that persists in the eyewear world … Continue reading These are the best glasses for every face shape—be it round, oval, heart, or square

Attachment in Detachment

With Nature-tanusrirchokhe

*Attachment in Detachment—-*
*Written by Sudha* *Murthy, wife of* *Narayan* *Murthy…..Worth reading……* 👌👌

“When my daughter, the elder of my two, wed and left home, I felt a part of me gone.

With a daughter and a son, I know what both mean, differently.

When she was in her teens I felt as if she was my “physical extension” !

So when she left home to set up her own, I felt I lost a limb.

Next time she came to stay with us, I was astonished how her priorities had changed.

We too must’ve given the same shocks to our own parents !

When she said Amma,
she meant her mother-in-law, not me!

I felt she was always in a hurry to go back to her house and not stay with me for a few more days.

That was the first time, it dawned on me that I have…

Some (not so) Squirrelly Advice for Pleasant Holidays

Mixed Nuts
What do you think about when you think about squirrels?  Ravaged bird feeders?  Acrobatic acts?  Rabies?  The park?  Nuts?  Well, yes, nuts.  That also comes to mind when I think about the December holidays.

Not just the type of nuts we eat — like roasted chestnuts, walnuts on that sumptuous apple pie, or honey coated peanuts in the snack dish, but nuts as in gathering frantically like a squirrel, and nuts as in foolishly excessive holiday behaviors.   It’s a bountiful season for sure, but will it fill us up or leave us feeling exhausted, robbed and empty?

Filling Up More than Stockings
Each of us can choose to step back and celebrate in simpler, more meaningful ways.  You can create a holiday celebration of choice and one that enriches, rather than depletes, you or loved ones — physically, emotionally, and financially. …

“sono solo sincero” mi parve di sentirgli dire” sai bene che non sono capace di inganno”
“ma non ti soffermi pensi mai a pensare un poco, prima di emettere il tuo verdetto?” ribattei trattenendo un lamento che pareva montarmi dal cuore
“io rifletto sempre” precisò “non temere: non potrei fare altrimenti”
“un po’ di savoir faire ti renderebbe meno drastico… forse non guasterebbe camuffare questi segni che non ricordavo così marcati”

“sì, forse ne avevo paura; non mi sembra di essere più io”
“non puoi aver paura di ciò che sei, non puoi rinnegare il passato mappato sul tuo volto” concluse lo specchio

What If Pearl Harbor Had Not Been Attacked?

Good point ! what if….


Pearl Harbor U.S.S. Arizona in flames after being bombed

December 7, 2018, was the commemoration of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor which occurred 77 years ago. That event propelled America into World War II in 1941 changing the course of world history.

The events leading to the attack reveal that Pearl Harbor Co-Commanders Admiral Kimmel and General Short ignored significant warnings from their superiors prior to the fateful Sunday. Moreover, other ignored warnings and mistakes in communication on the morning of December 7 increased the devastation.

What If It Never Happened?

What might have been the consequences if Pearl Harbor had never happened? For example, what if the warning given on November 27, 1941, had been taken more seriously,

The notice of November 27, to Kimmel, began, “This dispatch is to be considered a war warning,” went on to say that “negotiations have ceased,” and directed the admiral to “execute an…

Self love!!

Positive Side Of The Coin

I always loved myself, sometimes I feel I am best. Is it’s wrong to think that? No, I always felt if I love myself….if I take care of myself, and if I respect myself, then only others will do.

Excerpt — Burn For Him

Heartstring Eulogies

“And that was when I knew
what it was like to burn for someone.”

When I saw him, it was the ethereal glow surrounding him in a purple haze that caught my attention. He stood in a casual stance, wearing black. But his hair was my downfall. It was straight and brown, curtaining around his face on one side while the other was tucked behind his ear, threatening to fall in the breeze. Chocolate, brown eyes flickered to mine and my breath caught in my throat. He held my gaze, and I couldn’t breathe.

God, but he was the most gorgeous creature I ever saw. Something about him made me feel alive again. I wanted to feel his skin. Taste his lips. Feel the silkiness of his hair. The stubble on his cheeks. It made my fingers twitch and my lips tingle at the thought.

It was illogical. I didn’t…

Can you change your age?

With Nature-tanusrirchokhe

Can you change your age? I can change my age according to the situation, according to the surroundings. When I play with a 2 months old baby, I feel that my age is only two months and also I feel that I can’t walk and talk. When I talk with school girls, I feel I am a student of class eight. But don’t think I always reduce my age. When I talk with my grandmother, I feel I have lot of responsibilities towards my lots of sons and daughters, grand children.

It is very much essential to change your age when it demands. The person to whom you are interacting get interests within you, when you reduce your age.

Be flexible. Be a Kid when you are passing your time with Kid. Be a teenager when you are talking with teenagers. Be an old person when you are talking with…

Let The Children Come

One Way Studies

Rev. Sudha Mehta©


Photo from Son of God movie.

It is believed that the primary caregivers, in most cases mother and father, have the greatest influence and impact on a child in the formative early years. These years are what define a child’s life and destiny. Interestingly, it might be said that all is based on information the child internalizes.

The point is made well by the story of a young Prince. This is Indian history. During the English Reign in India in 1836, a baby boy was born to the Maharaja (Mighty king) Randhir Singh of the region of Punjab. Maharaja Randhir Singh and his lovely and fiery Queen, the Maharani Jind Kaur loved their baby boy the Crown Prince Dalip.

Try to be ever ready


What will happen to you
If you are not ready
When the Lord shall come?
This is a question to ask yourself;
Have you ever done so?
We have to be ready;
You get ready;
And I get ready,
While we wait for the Lord
To come.
The Lord himself commanded:
“You must be ready;
For the Son of Man is coming
at an hour when you do not
think He will.” (Matt. 24:42-44).
You must “be dressed in readiness,
and keep your lamps lit.(Lk. 12:35-40)
Get yourself ready
To do what you must do;
If you are ready,
You will do it well.
If you are not ready,
It is doubtful if you do it well;
Try to be ever ready.

Worth Trying: 12 Acts of Kindness

Amanda Cade


I had a busy, somewhat stressful week. When that happens, I really become attuned to the kindness of others, because little things mean a lot more when I’m trying to keep my attitude in the positive zone. I also make a concentrated effort to spread kindness when I’m feeling stressed, because that usually helps me snap out of a bad mood. And since we’re in the holiday season, 12 feels like the right number of my favorite acts of kindness to share.

So if you’d like to try spreading some cheer, you can…

1. Buy someone a beverage

Inexpensive and super simple. Taking a trip to the vending machine? Grab an extra and give it away. Stopping at Starbucks on the way to work or class? Text a friend and see if you can get them something. I also like to occasionally pay for the car behind me in the…

Stu’s Story – Permanent Peripheral Neuropathy from Cipro

Fluoroquinolone Wall of Pain

Six years ago I was put on a 3 1/2 week therapy(seems so paradoxical to even use that word)of Cipro twice a day. I have been in medical sales all of my professional career and should have taken closer notice, that my legs were hurting me and should have stopped immediately. I took a generic so there is no recourse legally for the damage that was done.

I have never recovered, in fact, in many ways symptoms have grown worse. Post Cipro I was left with Peripheral Neuropathy in both feet, shins, calves, 24/7 365.

It is daily torture and difficult to live with(but its better than the alternative). I also deal with diffuse pain all over my body and no doctor can tell me the cause. I have Idopathic Peripheral Neuropathy(meaning, there is no known cause).

Each doctor I have seen, I tell them that I know that the…
