    Well, this isn't quite an intro. But it isn't quite not one either. And it is kind of an explanation as to where I'm at right now in several arenas. Call it a short autobiography... ;-)

    As some of you know, I've been learning punjabi for a while. I have a blog I write in partly about that. I've been appreciating aspects of punjabi/Sikh/Indian culture more and more (I put all three as I know there is overlap to a degree). I really enjoy going to the gurdwara, even though I do consider myself to be between agnostic and atheist. I find it peaceful and calm and hey yeah there's good food. ;-) and I really want to go to India. There are some friends I've made over there, and I really want to a) have the experience of doing so and b) meet those people before too many years to by. But I've been through a long round of bad luck and (touch wood) I hope I'm just about to come out of the tunnel. When I say bad luck, I mean nasty costly divorce, horrible custody battle, and almost loss of my kids, as well as loss of a baby, almost loss of a relative, and there is more but I won't go on. I honestly don't know how I'll manage to save up for a trip to India...as much as I want to visit. I won't say I've been good at saving money ever, but it's been especially tight the last number of months. I don't know for sure what the next few months holds. I do know that unless I win the lottery there's a darn good chance I won't get there until March 2016 at the earliest (boo hoo :'( ). So I guess I could also call this a vent. ;-)

    Thanks for listening ;-)

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
