It's Great to Be Back!

We’ve had a few technical issues that have kept 21stCenturyWaves.com offline for a few weeks!

Thanks to Tom Johnson at http://www.idratherbewriting.com for getting us back online.
If you have a WordPress problem, I’d highly recommend him.

It’s great to be back…

Ebullient Congratulations to the Taj Mahal and my Mother!

Congratulations to my mom because this week she achieved the remarkable age of 91 and continues to enjoy life on the west coast of Michigan! Happy Birthday Mom!!

Ebullience in abundance: My mom at the Taj Mahal. Click taj.pdf.

Besides being the most loving, ebullient mother anyone could imagine having, she’s a retired teacher and a world traveler who’s interested in everything. She grew up in India and learned to play tennis at the Kodaikanal School in the Palani Hills of Tamil Nadu while her dad was a Methodist missionary.

Since that time she’s visited every continent on Earth except Antarctica — although I don’t want to give her any ideas :) — and shared it all with her lucky students. More recently she’s enjoyed visiting China, Australia, and New Zealand.

The first part of mom’s life encompassed “The Aspirin Age” from 1919 to 1945; a counter-ebullient period just after the abrupt fall from the near-utopian Polar/Panama Canal Maslow Window to W. W. I, including the Great Depression and W. W. II. Similar hard times have afflicted the Taj Majal, and we offer our congratulations to this architectural masterpiece for surviving all of them.

Built in the 17th century by Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan as a memorial for his wife, Mumtaz Mahal, the Taj was damaged during the Indian Rebellian of 1857, near the end of the Dr. Livingstone Maslow Window. However, just in time for the ebullient Polar/Panama Canal Maslow Window, British viceroy Lord Curzon ordered a massive restoration project, which was completed in 1908, only 10 years before mom was born.

Again, congratulations to the Taj and Happy Birthday to You, mom!
