Embracing the Good

September 24, 2021

Yesterday I was on a brisk walk in windy, 50 degree weather, perfect for the first day of fall, when an acorn flew out of a tree and smacked me hard on the hand. I actually yelped. It seemed appropriate that a reckless acorn would usher in my favorite season. Just like everything in life, you get what you love along with a little bit of pain. I’m…

OK, Now I’m Over It…Thank you Humidity

June 10, 2021

When my daughter finally got here, we greeted each other with what may go down in history as the longest, most emotional hug we’ve ever…

VOTE! It’s Safe and Easy

October 7, 2020

I’m at my dining room table staring my mail in ballot. I like the fact that I can vote with hair conditioner on, under an electric heating cap, looking like an alien in a bad 1950s Sci-fi movie. I’d share the image, but am too vain to give you that kind of belly laugh right now. I usually vote in person because my parents did, and took great…
