After a relaxing week in Tuscany (to celebrate the end of my 50th year around the sun,) I came back refreshed. I was full of verve and vigor to get back to work, writing and connecting with my friends, family and colleague.
Unfortunately, the best laid plans often go wrong, thanks to unplanned events. I got hit by the Flu virus (yes it is that season) and have been at home, literally doing nothing. Flu and cold are my kryptonite and I am destroyed by them. It is day five, the fever has receded and I have finally started to feel like a human. I hope by end of this week I can be at full strength. On the plus side I have been able to watch the playoff baseball games on my iPad.
Before I go, I also wanted to wish all my readers, especially those in India, a very happy Diwali. It is a festival that celebrates the victory of good over evil. Now more than ever, we need to remember that message. It is one of the few days in a year when I really miss being in Delhi — all those sweets.
