Plan meals for traveling

As I write this column in the increasing light of a still-optimistic January morning, I think of my new favorite quote, by Thoreau of all people:

“Rise free from care before the dawn and seek adventures.”

Check and check. Now to find some adventures…

Catherine Yeates, my baby nurse

January 6, 2013

I am very delighted and happy to share with you one of my very favorite portraits. The medium I used was water color on a 14 inch by 20 inch hard water color board. I hope that you will love this painting and story as much as I loved having the honor of presenting it to you today.

January 6, 2013

I didn’t go to a wild party on New Years Eve or ring in the new year with fireworks and champagne.

Razzle-dazzle 2013 New Year's resolutions

December 30, 2012

This is going to be a razzle-dazzle, bustling, glamorous and exciting year ahead beginning Tuesday. Let's dance in the year with a little razzmatazz, an early style of jazz music. I invite each of you to climb up in the old brown wooden swing dangling in our front yard and swing along with me as we together make our New Year's Resolutions.

Look for ‘God winks’ in 2013

December 30, 2012

My chore this week was to tame the convivial chaos of what was left over from Christmas 2012. As I attempted to shove some decorations under my bed, I found a book I bought nearly 12 years ago after Sept. 11, 2001. It was a delightful little volume which discussed a phenomenon called “God winks.”
