Sweetie is the feline equivalent of that old lady who lost her filter. She’s a sixteen-year-old Persian with an unruly mane, who has to be sedated for her spa appointments. Sweetie doesn’t hold her liquor like she used to. The day after her most recent style and perm, she was still feeling a…

Winter is a time of deep silence—a drawing inward. Waning light, cold air catching in your lungs, lakes freezing over, and rain which becomes snow are all hallmarks of this drawing away from the surface. This season is necessary for nature to rejuvenate and prepare for the surge of growth wh…

I don’t know if they take attendance in schools anymore. Maybe surveillance cameras, facial recognition and all the other high-tech intrusions make it unnecessary, but back in the day, the teacher would always start out with the roll call. You were expected to announce “here” when your name …

I’m not a Dr. Seuss fan. When it comes to children’s books, I’m more a Curious George or Peter Rabbit guy. I generally don’t like the doggerel or the illustrations in Seuss, which doesn’t leave much to admire.

It was still November when my Christmas tree fell over this year. Don’t worry there weren’t any breakable ornaments on it, those family heirlooms will be in storage until my children are in their pre-teens. I don’t think that ever happened when I was a kid and we had a cat.
