Where are we? Where to begin and Where to Go?

It has been so intense, unreal and yet at the same time painfully and brutally real these past few weeks. The 8 minute and 46 second video of George Floyd, a Black American choked to death by a White Police Officer with his knee in Floyd’s neck and several other Officers just watching as FloydContinue reading “Where are we?

Where to begin ? Seeking the new future.

Busy on Borough Council, busy supervising a Social Work Intern at a local non-profit community service organization.  Helping out with the local production of the Nutcracker.  My mother had AMAZING sewing skills, my mine totally pale in comparison, however I seem to fit some of the requirementsContinue reading “Same Blog New Look !”

I don’t have a lot of pics of my family this summer . . .

This summer I have been living with my children: walking, cooking with food from our garden, eating, laughing, swimming, and just laying around reading together or watching movies.  We have been doing a lot of things like painting the porch at the cabin, redecorating and reorganizing the rooms in our house, going on day tripsContinue reading “I don’t have a lot of pics of my family this summer . . .”
