The Devi Dasi

Obvious question – why The Devi Dasi?  It feels almost bizarre to call it a rebrand but I felt the need for an identifier that was as pervasive to me as my name. I’ve written about my name and the weight and sanctity it holds to me here.   In addition to my name, however, as…

Day 100

I’ve toyed with the idea of a blog for 11 years. Buried deep on the internets are my initial iterations, recanting my first ever encounter with boba/bubble tea, the trials of a younger brother addicted to runescape and the musings of being the only woman on the Boy Scouts Venture Crew division.

My gratitude journal and #100daysofgratitude have always been about taking inventory of the daily banalities we take for granted while being open to the possibility of connecting to something…

Day 12

I’ve been thinking about how so much of what we do every day is a performance to appear a certain way and enhance an already formulated image of who you are. Social media is of course the extreme “meta” version of that cognition – allowing us to mold our lives into the best possible, FOMO…
