What is ‘Karma Calling’ about?
It’s a record of our life, our thoughts and our many adventures as they unfold. A chronicle of our pasts and a wish list of the future, a commentary of the present.
Who is ‘we’ ?
BigGeek – The husband. A true renaissance man. Metal head. Connoisseur of single-malts. Crazy about sound and sound engineering. Enjoys photography. Likes scifi and comics. A real Big Geek.
DotMom – The wife. A bohemian at heart. Musically inclined. Enjoys listening to Bach, Kishori Amonkar, Dreamtheater, Steve Morse Band. Likes to cook, bake and garden. Enjoys photography. Likes to write. Enjoys literary fiction. Writes this blog.
Chip – The Offsping. Chip off the block. Rambunctious. In the throes of his terrible two's. Has his mother’s nose and father’s ears. Is the very definition of a Sears' High Need Child.
Why does DotMom blog?
It’s therapeutic. It’s fun. It’s also very addictive. But mostly because she hopes one day Chip and his children and their children will read it. A bequest of sorts.
