The introverted Scandinavian
People in northern climates historically spent long, cold and harsh winters holed up in their homes with no one to talk to but themselves. It was a life of solitude where self-sufficiency was a benefit. They had no choice but to get used to large amounts of silence.

July Fourth is No. 1
We may not be perfect; we may disagree about politics and other issues, but I feel lucky to live in a place where we are free to disagree. I salute our flag, sing America the Beautiful loud and proud (albeit off-key) and at the end of the day go to bed thankful that I know the reality...

Pour yourself a glass of wine. But not six. Just one. And sit somewhere comfortable. Dim the lights. Not amorous. Be ready. Receptive. Appreciate how amazing humans can be. And listen. And I dare you to not be moved.

There is a detour around South Finn Road, west of Wright or near Sawyer, East of Cromwell. This will cause some inconvenience, but sure needs to be done.

The joy of worrying
When they grow up and gain independence the angst is still there, but it doesn't hinge on your actions; it hinges on theirs and that loss of control can be even more terrifying than parenthood itself.

Hitting the sauce
Sauces are an essential element of nearly every cuisine worldwide — from chimichurri in Argentina to sriracha in Thailand and everywhere in between. The world would be lost without sauce.

We had a really great week May 21-28 as our youngest son Curtis was home from San Francisco to help us clean and organize our home. It's amazing how much stuff one can collect in 47 years of living in the same place. And the weird thing is that the stuff that meant so much to us years...

I pull the dandelions out of the garden, without consciousness or appreciation of their sunny yellow dispositions. They are weeds, after all. Gardeners think nothing of pulling weeds in order to make room for the non-weedy, desirable plants. But who decides which is which? It's...
