Aloha Hawaii!
Living in Switzerland in pretty sweet. It’s got mountains, lakes and hiking paths that lead to breathtaking views. But it doesn’t have pineapples…or coconuts…or palm trees. I like palm trees. I miss palm trees. I also miss drinking cheap Pina Coladas while...

Surfing in Muizenberg

Contemporary art in Saudi Arabia
People always seem to be surprised that art (and really good art) exists in Saudi Arabia.  There maybe certain restrictions due to Muslim religion, but art can still bloom within restrictions.  And often what comes out are powerful and memorizing images tha...

Mesmerized by the art and words of Qin Tian
Writing has always been a part of my life. I wrote my first novel when I was 6 about an Irish Setter named Cinnamon and his adventures living with a koala bear in New Zealand (it wasn’t very good). All my life, I have always jotted down lines of poetry, mov...

Visiting the other Bellagio
This weekend it was time to visit the other Bellagio.  You know…the one that’s not in Las Vegas; but
the one that’s in Italy on Lake Como. Instead of taking the train, I decided that I would drive
