This week, I will be attending the Alumni Reunion of my medical school. All the alumni who live here in the US, Canada, Europe get together each year. This year there will be some who will be coming from Australia and New Zealand also. Therefore, I decided I shall also go. The last time I went, to one was in the Bay Area, again, in California

However, this year, it is going to be very special. I will be meeting two of my favorite xangans there; Janet, (slmret), and Carlos (Carlos Carrion) will be meeting up with me. I am so excited. Even though it will be only for a couple or three hours and we would have lunch together, it is nevertheless, a wonderful opportunity for me. I shall reach there on Friday and return after the gala affairs of the alumni meeting on Monday via Chicago.

Just thought I would let you all know. Hope those horrible fires would have died down by then.  Have a great week

About Zakiah

I write poetry and some fiction, have a book that was published in 2012. . . Stray Thoughts/Winged Words. I have four grandchildren, ages 16 and half to almost 16 months. I love the ocean, and grew up along the Indian Ocean in South India. I am a retired physician. Don't know much else to say. Thanks for reading. That has been my profile for so many years. My daughter Saadia a great poet and story teller, has two sons; the oldest grandson is now 21 years old, doing architectural engineering at Missouri S&T in Rolla MO. His younger brother is almost 16 and taking driving lessons seriously and is in High School. The other two grandsons, children of my son Sayeed, are 9 and 5. I have recently published another book titled Gulistan, A home of Flowers. It has stories and memories of my childhood and of a distant land which I still consider as my HOME., even though I have lived here in the US for more than fifty years. Hope to see you on my blog.

    The fire north of Santa Barbara is projected for containment by 6/23 (Thursday) — you won’t be able to see it, but the air may still be somewhat smoky. If the air looks blue, stay inside! And the heat should break on Tuesday, If today’s prediction is correct. I was talking today with a friend who works outdoors, detailing cars — he had to cancel tomorrow because the wax would not withstand the heat! I’m looking forward to seeing you on Saturday!
