So, short post this week.

Bostonians

I wanted to add a last observation from Cleveland land. I took an Uber to pick up my rental car and had a long talk with the driver along the way.

Socrates and What Have You Noticed Lately?

I’m contemplating my past. Where you’ve been reflects where you’re going.

Dear Old Dad

Being with my parents, watching the damage done from my mother’s stroke, and the very slow healing thereafter, makes one reflect on these things. She’s doing much better but, still, patience is important to keep on the forefront of one’s . . . → Read More: Socrates and What Have You Noticed Lately?
