Beau Biden: 1969-2015

Rest in peace

The story of Beau Biden's death has deeply troubled me today. Not for political reasons but due to its sadness. Life can be so inconsistent. In one lifetime, a person can experience so much pain and loss...and another person can experience none. The losses I have experienced from young age to adulthood make me bitter.  I have to remind myself of what I have here and now...which is so much. I am lucky despite my personal grief.

I know that we take life for granted in this day and age. It is expected that children outlive their parents. Usually that is the case. We live in a great time. But cancer reminds us that nothing is guaranteed, despite all the advances we make.

National Siblings Day

I never knew this day existed till people started posting pictures of their siblings on Facebook. I therefore posted a picture of  my sister and I standing with our father in Trinidad a few years before he died. After posting the picture, I realized that it was quite unfair to not to mention my other 11 or 12 siblings.

My father was a an incredibly handsome man who had many children with many women from different parts of the world. I have not met all of my siblings, but many of us are connected on Facebook. They all seem like interesting, all attractive, but deeply affected (by this man who left messes all over the world.) I think this would have happened to Don Draper if he were a real person. 

I created a collage of some of the siblings that I do know. I am proud to be related to all of them. And I hope we can meet each other soon.

It's been a long time!

So I renewed my webpage domain name. So I am back. Here are the kids. We left Astoria and live the suburban life in Rutherford, NJ. I must say that the children enjoy it. I actually think they would be happy anywhere! I promise you that I will never pretend that life is perfect! I'll be back soon! So this is what you get when you get a pot and mix Nigerian, Scottish, Trinidadian, and American together! Super cute.
