Yes folks – it’s that time again where I humbly offer another year end wrap-up in the poetic stylings of “‘Twas the Night Before Christmas”! Are you sitting comfortably? Then I’ll begin! ‘Twas a year to remember, that’s quite the safe bet! But largely a year I should like to forget. This annum could have […]

November is the month in which we in the US set aside the 11th to honor our veterans of war. And if the sports year were going as it should, the red poppies in Canadian hockey announcers’ lapels would be reminding me that our northern neighbors are among the countries that observe Remembrance Day at the same […]

Personal growth isn’t always a pretty process for me. Nope. I’m gonna reach back several decades anyway though and share a messy – but marvelous – teachable moment from a visit to Scotland! Okay so back at the end of my college days, I was lucky to get to spend a summer backpacking around Europe […]

“Where were you in ‘62?” That’s what movie posters for the 1973 classic American Graffiti asked back in the day. Easy answer for me: wasn’t around yet, but love the film! Here we are in 2020 (because we have to be…) and, as our Constitution requires every ten years, we in the US are getting […]

We’ve probably all been establishing new habits in these Covidian times, right? I sure have – but I’ve also noticed one long-standing habit has all but disappeared. I don’t check my calendar each morning anymore. Because my schedule – is – open. I do still flip over the wall calendar page every month just to […]

Summertime greetings! Okay, so I’m deciding right here to make this my final post that features a view from my window! I mean, I’m hoping three prior squirrel-related posts wasn’t already excessive. And Dorothy’s sentiment in the Wizard of Oz movie is nice and everything – but I’ve now had three months to look for […]

Greetings again from me and my now longtime squirrel-buds! As the world gradually reopens out there (with mixed results here in the States…), I’m still pretty much sticking to home. No, not because of my gray roots. Okay, not only because of my gray roots. I think this squirrel and I both just prefer to […]

Greetings, all!  Hope this finds you healthy and hanging in there! As these necessary distancing days wear on, I’ve settled into a routine of alternately exercising, apartment cleaning (kind of a new experience!), continuing to bond with the squirrel quaranteammates outside and, of course – binge watching stuff.   I’ve been sampling current fare (yes, […]

My, my, my. Last month’s cheery post about a trip to Colorado seems like an age ago.  Now I’m dug in at home, envying the squirrels I see outside my window that can come and go as they please…   But that’s absolutely as it has to be right now!   And maybe there’s some inspiration to […]

Greetings, all!  Back from a brief but inspiring trip to Colorado where views like the above were just some of what took my breath away! The quick outing combined two of my chief passions – travel and hockey!  This time a year ago, I’d met up in New York with friends Dee and Dedrie for […]
