the usual
It’s been the usual March wild ride. Back-to-back birthday parties yesterday. The end of hockey season – an out-of-town tournament – last weekend; Abbott’s first ultimate Frisbee game a couple of days ago. We cheered in the frigid, sparkling sunlight, memor...

Daylight savings time and I’m back to stargazing when I take Nelly outside to do her morning business. Predawn hammering has commenced on a neighbor’s metal chimney, and I have to think serious thoughts to suppress my un-neighborly grin. (Maybe too much Woo...

happily so
Right about now six years ago, we unlocked the door to our house for the first time, plastic bags of takeout in hand. Though it was too dark to see, we could hear the ocean’s waves as we let ourselves in; inhaled the unfamiliar briny air. Dazed and exhauste...

I Don't See the Handwriting
In these days of raw winter, I find myself on the losing side of battles with hedonism and lethargy. I blame my shortcomings on the mostly-absent, anemic light. I haven’t read much of anything since before Thanksgiving. I go out of my way to avoid small tal...

Last night I dreamt of San Pedro
Most years we’ve been lucky enough to escape the dog days of winter for just long enough to remember what heat feels like. A week ago we returned from Ambergris Caye, Belize. It was the best vacation we’ve ever had. Oh, the warm, hibiscus-and-ocean air! The...

for all it was
For the first time in days, I ate lunch. Specifically, I ate a “Mediterranean sandwich” – fragrant, thick slices of focaccia containing brightly seasoned roasted vegetables, feta cheese, briny and sharp, and thinly sliced red onion. Olive oil, sweet and fru...
