What happens now?

Friends and Food

My daughter sent me a text they were slaughtering the turkeys.  It's that time of year, when after a year of fun and fellowship, they are now going to roast and eat their companions. And they feel pretty good about it.  It's important for them to like the things they...

Back Where I Belong

After a two month hiatus due to lack of  internet connectivity up in Maine and a surfeit of emotional connectivity back home, I'm back where I belong. My little cabin in the Maine woods reinforced my decision NOT to be a fan of scary books and I enjoyed sitting out on...

Hot Days Cool Streams

I'm in the sixth day of my free sample week of BRITBOX and I must admit I love it.  I like to watch Welsh shepherds on breezy hills tending their flocks. I love to listen to Monty Don as he messes with "compost" and talks about seedlings.  And of course, I'd watch...

What is This Strange Place?

One of the issues of being an older new singleton is getting out at night.  Pat and I went everywhere all the time; even after he was on life support. We saw Book of Mormon one sleety February afternoon at DPAC and attended many concerts in Chapel Hill and Greensboro,...
