Once upon a time–or, really, about twelve years, twenty pounds, and a box of hair dye ago–I worked at an ice cream shoppe. I took a certain pride in my important, dessert-based work. Candy combinations. Cream in the hopper. Icing perfectly dolloped. I was good at it. And even though it was “just a job”,…
Let’s agree to take it easy on the shoulds, shall we? I should be cleaning. I should be grading. I should take advantage of this weather and be outside. What a waste of time. You should have told me. We should be closer. I should be the one you turn to. Please shut up, voice.…
I’m making a pact with myself. Albeit, a small one, but a pact no less. Everyday I will: 1. Read. Something. Not anything. A novel; The New Yorker; blogs; short stories; a recipe; a shampoo bottle. 2. Have a Laugh. Seinfeld; the antics of my crazy cats; old cartoons; an audible toot. 3. Savor Time.…

It’s Gonna Be All Right.
‘Cause things have a way of working out, Dear Reader. So, here we are. It’s 2020: a new decade. Let’s hope we humans do a better job of things, both for society and for the planet. We have work to do. So as we begin filling in this pleasantly blank calendar, I’m making a few…
What Would Raja Do?
This is our daughter, Raja. And I’ve decided she’s my new role model. Whenever I feel stressed, I’m going to pause and ask, “What would Raja do?” The answer is usually one of three options: 1. Take Time for a Treat. She loves to eat, just like me! She’s addicted to Temptations, of any flavor…
