Fall. As some may know, it’s my favorite time of year. Our abrupt weather whiplash experience several days ago reminded us of winter, skipping right over fall. Not only was it an unwelcome prelude to the inevitable, it prematurely ended some garden harvests and pushed some plants and shrubs into early dormancy.

  • Is a more perfect union even possible?
    Monday, September 7, 2020 6:10 AM
    Sometimes, when it counts, everyone has to win a little and lose a little for things to improve for all. If everyone is an enemy or a competitor, how do we build a community, much less a more perfect union?

  • We all need comic relief sometimes
    Monday, August 31, 2020 11:09 AM
    Laughter has a way of putting some things in proper perspective. I know it reminds me that even when things seem terrifying and hopeless, a good laugh and exceptional humor have an important place.

  • Time for a bit of levity
    Sunday, August 16, 2020 9:19 AM
    It seems like laughter and joy have been on hiatus for a while. I was talking with my brother recently to see how they were doing in a state where the virus is on the uptick. We were talking about our similar routines and how they are getting annoying.

  • Cabin fever has gotten to many of us
    Sunday, August 9, 2020 10:30 AM
    In many ways, my routine hasn’t changed all that much during this pandemic. I’ve been fortunate to be able to continue working, and have continued being a homebody. I’ve always shopped early. I was glad when I could finally get my hair cut. But in my mind, and probably in most people’s minds, things do take on subtle changes.

  • What kind of legacy are you leaving?
    Friday, July 31, 2020 9:09 AM
    An ethical will is prepared as a document to pass along one’s values and beliefs to the heirs. It doesn’t hold material value. It holds something more dear. It is a legacy of what one believes, how one hopes to be remembered, what lessons and values one wishes to pass to their progeny and friends.

  • Words we don’t hear anymore
    Monday, June 15, 2020 8:48 AM
    I’m sure there are words and phrases unique to all parts of the country that tickle one’s fancy, that are used less and less these days. More’s the pity. Hopefully, this kindled some memories of good words gone by.

  • Memorial Day worthy of reflection
    Sunday, May 31, 2020 8:22 AM
    I’m proud each Memorial Day. I also mourn each Memorial Day. Since the demise of the draft, fewer and fewer of our citizens have a direct link with the military and those who serve. That sea change is having an effect that only historians will be able to assess accurately.

  • Quotes that mirror our thoughts
    Sunday, May 24, 2020 10:15 AM
    With your indulgence again, I’m sharing words and thoughts borne of renaissance thinking that prove there are those individuals who shine and articulate situations in ways that elude most of us, even if their words illuminate what is in our hearts and minds.

  • Pay attention to the words we all use
    Sunday, May 17, 2020 11:59 AM
    For me, words take on new meaning in times of stress. What people say, write, tonality, context all seem more vivid. I also find myself projecting my particular momentary space onto others’ words and thoughts. This is always dangerous. We can misinterpret, and set things in motion we never thought possible.
