This candle is for all those affected by Ida.

It’d Been A Different Story If I’d Been Thirteen! (I Still Miss You, Buddy.)

January 21, 2021

I’m not exactly sure why, but I found myself thinking about my cousin Jimmy this morning. He passed some years before the birth of my son, but I still remember Jimmy as being my fun (if occasionally jerky) older cousin, and wanted to honor him appropriately.

Hey, Jimmy! Remember when you were so proud of yourself when you beat me at Clue? I just want to say that the reason you beat me is the same reason that I didn’t steal your college-bound girlfriend away from you . . . because I was twelve!

Happy New Year Everyone!

Happy Holidays!

Silence, and a candle for all those people in your life you were once close to and now . . . for one reason or another, you’re not anymore.

Good Luck Out There

June 5, 2020

This candle is for everyone.

It Wasn’t From UPS

May 14, 2020

“Hang on,” L’s Mother told me yesterday as she glanced at her watch.  “I think all my texts for today are coming in at once.  Yeah . . . I’m seeing a notification about a delivery from UPS . . . something about a baby . . .”

“From UPS?!” I just had to ask.

(By the way, congratulations, Pixie.)

My New Year’s Blessing For The World

January 2, 2020

May your new year be filled with a pantry and refrigerator so overstocked that it’s occasionally mildly irritating when you’re trying to find something specific.
