That may not sound earth-shattering, but my relatively recent unreasonable fear of electronics reared its head and this was a major feat – one that could only be handled with hand-holding from someone patient and understanding. My library of old movies is now available to me again, and I wasted no time in indulging.
  • Watching old movies always comforting

  • Think hard before voting on Nov. 6
    Sunday, October 21, 2018 10:57 AM
    Does a candidate or initiative expand, empower and enable the citizenry to have a better life, more liberty and the ability to pursue happiness? Is there “decent respect to the opinions of mankind?” I think this will be my starting point toward my voting decisions this year.

  • September always full of memories
    Sunday, October 14, 2018 12:22 PM
    One of the things that overwhelmed us the most, and left us awestruck, was the care and concern of people who don’t know us from Adam. It actually took a village of strangers to assist us in ways great and small to take care of the many details that accompany a death. Days later, we are still overwhelmed.

  • It may be time to examine our beliefs
    Sunday, October 7, 2018 10:37 AM
    For the purposes of this column, I’m thinking about the recent anonymous op-ed published in the New York Times. When the op-ed first appeared, it was sobering. It came on the heels of the Sen. McCain funeral that brought words like honor, service, truth and sacrifice back into the vocabulary, however temporary. It also brought a sense of sadness.

  • Fall offers many things to appreciate
    Monday, October 1, 2018 6:20 AM
    It’s that time again. Fall. My favorite time of year. The crisp feel in the air, the cornucopia of colors among the flora that graces our landscape, and all the attendant sights, sounds and scents are calming and reassuring. Football, fires in the fireplace, sweater weather and candy corn are all reassuring signs that fall is in the air.

  • Strive to do better with our words
    Saturday, September 15, 2018 9:12 AM
    I do think words matter. I think how we speak, and our tone, matters. I know I’m not as careful with either as I would hope. I chastise myself when I fall short, which seems to happen with greater frequency these days.

  • Writing not always easy, illuminating
    Friday, September 7, 2018 8:47 AM
    In the past few weeks, I’ve been asked by a few different people about how I decide what I’m going to write in my columns. It’s a good question, and not one with an easy or quick answer. Each time I had to pause. Each time I had to think a little harder about the answer.

  • I wish you enough in your lives
    Saturday, September 1, 2018 8:47 AM
    In 2018 across the globe, there are still societies wishing for a way to keep warm and for any basic food source that will allow them to survive. We have enough of most everything, except appreciation and compassion. Maybe when we rediscover those, we’ll realize what is enough.

  • Show more support for institutions
    Sunday, August 26, 2018 12:31 PM
    As our institutions start to wobble, we need to make sure they are supported. It is in our interest as individuals within a society, especially if we want that society to survive.

  • Whatever happened to customer service?
    Tuesday, August 21, 2018 8:29 AM
    I recognize that customer service is a two-way street. Customers aren’t necessarily being charmers today. I was in line at a store where I witnessed a customer behaving like a jerk, berating the cashier for some reason that I could not quite hear. Actually, I can’t imagine any valid reason for the behavior that was on exhibition.
