A Divinely Arranged Marriage

A person's lack of South Asian savvy is revealed when they see my husband and me and ask, "Oh! Was YOUR marriage one of those ARRANGED ones?" Well, maybe that's not such a dumb question after all. As Rob and I head off to commemorate 2 decades of marriage, it certainly seems like someone might have been arranging things behind the scenes. I'll be back on the Fire Escape 8/31. In the meantime, check out Mixed Media Watch, reflections on all things interracial.

Dear Mitali,

I just visited your website for the first time. How did you become such a good writer? I grew up in France as a missionary kid and cannot seem to write (or spell for that matter) in either language even though I was an avid reader.

Now, I am carting my children off to France and wondering how I can help them become better writers than I am. Do you have any suggestions?

Thank you so much,

Thanks, all, for your good wishes. After a wonderful, romantic time up in Maine (including three days biking through Acadia National Park), planned as a surprise by the hubby, I'm now scheduled to report for jury duty tomorrow. With a 9/15 deadline for book two of the First Daughter series, a Charlesbridge bookstore tour scheduled next week, and children to get ready for the first day of school, I hope I get eliminated FAST. How's that for displaying stellar civic responsibility?

Happy Anniversary, Mitali. What a beautiful photo. Two decades! That's just great.

P.S. People can be so ridiculous sometimes.
