My bicycle rested on my hip, one wheel spinning. The front tire had slid sideways against the lip of a driveway, and boom. My knees and hands hit, then my helmet, with a crack that left my ears ringing.   Cars passed by in a steady parade. A few eased over the center line to …more

I was saddened to learn from a disconsolate assembly of sixty-something family and friends in Edinburgh last week, about the recent passing of a former school teacher of mine – 101 years of age no less – one who contentedly endured and defiantly persisted as bright as a button – right up to the critical, …more

Was this REALLY how it was going to end? It was the last day of summer after all, my last day of an amazing summer, and my last day working on the beach as an umbrella boy. It was a sunless blustery day with only the most resolved beach goers venturing out! Maybe it was …more
