The Mother’s Day I Dreaded

It’s Mother’s Day, 2015. I sit alone in my mom’s house, typing this from her computer. Mom left us just over a week ago. She was 81. I hadn’t had the closest relationship with her most of my life but she was my only surviving parent, since Dad left us in 2004. I attended the […]

Sports in 2013 – Updates

In my continuing battle to keep at a reasonable weight, stay in shape and enjoy life, the outdoor sports of running, cycling and swimming have taken center stage.

My daughter Grace entered a “table art” contest at a restaurant in upstate NY when we visited in November. Symeon’s, a Greek restaurant that I have loved for years, was having a contest to see who could draw and create art on the table cloths. Grace, who is showing some potential as an artist, drew […]
