Father of AHHHS – The “D” Word

It is a well known fact that Chinese culture contains much superstition in their traditions and belief system. I am the product of resounding reminders of some of these superstitions. Growing up, my Father was very mindful of many these ancient rules of consequence. One of the subjects of major superstition and consequence has to do with death. Even as I wrote the last sentence, I could feel my Father turn in his grave and tell me to “STOP, you cannot write about that! It’s bad luck!” The Chinese people are very weary of the number 4, because in the Chinese…

Father of AHHHS – All Lives Matter (Part One)

As long as I can remember the subject of race has been a hot button topic of discussion. My first influence on the subject of race was when I watched the TV Mini Series Roots.  We did not have a TV in our home growing up, so I remember I went to watch this anticipated series at a friend’s house. From the first episode I was mortified yet hypnotically transfixed on the program. I remember sobbing convulsively as I watched the depiction of some of the worst acts of violence I had ever seen. My love, compassion and humanity were…

Father of AHHHS – Doctor, Lawyer, Commander in Chief

My delightful soon to be 5-year-old son is at that magical age where the answer to the question “What do you want to be when you grow up?” changes almost daily.  It is very entertaining to hear his many responses and rationales. We are past the phase of standard responses such as “a fireman, garbage truck driver and astronaut.” We have moved on to more serious contemplation, this summer it was all about being a Paleontologist.  Then, a Paleontologist on another planet – one of my personal favorites. However for two years he has consistently had the desire to begin…

Father of AHHHS – Mac & Cheese – Please!

When I was a kid I can remember other children raving about this thing called Macaroni and Cheese, specifically Kraft Macaroni and Cheese. Some kids said they ate it all the time, my friends talked about it like it was pure magic and that they could eat it every day. I recall seeing it on a TV commercial when visiting a friend’s home. You see, I grew up without TV in our home. In fact pretty much everything about my childhood home was “different.”  Our home was full of fixtures and ornamental statues from China, hand carved Chinese chests and furniture, tall…
