Where’s Ron?

For the past 30 years I have been traveling to various locations with my in-laws. During these trips, my father-in-law, Ron, regularly went missing. You can imagine how the hunt for Ron was exacerbated by the absence of cell phones in the earlier days. Without them, how exactly does one find a missing Ron atContinue reading “Where’s Ron?”

Intermingled

I have decided that Thanksgiving is probably my most favorite holiday. I am 49 years old and just realized this. Some of us like to take our sweet time when it comes to self-reflection. 😏 Besides the obvious “blessing” of a holiday celebrated mainly by gorging oneself on a flood of carbs and high-fructose cornContinue reading “Intermingled”

Wide Open Like a Lake

Several years ago, before my life as i knew it unraveled, I was on a vacation. I remember, very distinctly, sitting poolside, listening to music on my ipod.
