Swimming in Mexico



If I could beam myself anywhere in the world today, it would be here, to the Hacienda Uayamon Hotel in Mexico.  The clever architects involved repurposed the original hacienda ruins as a swimming pool.  Beautiful!

On Kindness

I suppose the thing I most would have liked to have known or be reassured about (when I was 18) is that in this world, what counts more than talent, what counts more than energy or concentration or commitment or anything else is kindness.  And the more in the world you encounter kindness, and cheerfulness (which is kind of its amiable uncle or aunt), just the better the world always is – and all the big words: virtue, justice, truth, are dwarfed by the greatness of kindness
- Stephen Fry

Have you ever typed LOL while staring stoney-faced at your computer screen?  We’ve all done it.  This video, from Bill Cosby’s Kids Say the Darnedest Things, made me actually laugh out loud, at my computer screen, alone.  Real-life-LOL.

Please watch it.  You’ll love it.

A Hot Bath


There must be quite a few things that a hot bath won’t cure, but I don’t know many of them
