SPRING IN MY STEP

FullSizeRender-26

On Tuesday, Joe and I took Ella to the ski bowl for a quick hike. The sun was shining, it was in the high 70s and the snow up the side of the mountain was slushy and soft. A dead leaf rolled by and Ella immediately chased it. There was some leftover winter, a little reminder of autumn and a definite ... Read More »

IT’S COMPLICATED

cuba-2017-sauced

Complicated. What an overused word to talk about messy relationships. “Messy” might work better. Or maybe “complicated” does fit. I am sitting in “complicated” right now. Complicated’s name is Cuba. This is my fourth visit to the island, and it has taken four visits for me to move beyond the sense of being overwhelmed by sights, sounds and smells, never ... Read More »

THE PING PONG TABLE

fullsizerender-25

There was once a ping-pong table that lived in my apartment. It moved in on July 11, 2014 and for almost two years, it took up an entire room. It was the big room – the one with the four windows that look out onto Main Street. The one with the beautiful light that makes the hardwood floors glow (and ... Read More »

MEMORIES OF ITALY

img_0027

Claire’s recent trip to Italy has inspired to finally sit down and write about my trip to Italy – all the way back in May. No, not that long ago. But somehow it seems like a life-time has passed since then. Summer has come and gone. It’s almost Harvest Fest at Gore Mountain. The leaves have turned neon orange and all shades of ... Read More »

THINGS THAT MAKE ME SMILE

iu-1

After reading this, I think you’ll guess what finger that is in the photo above. Things that make me smile: Hearing “Your table is ready.” A cup of coffee, a brand new magazine and 30 uninterrupted minutes to enjoy them both. The words “Boat day” followed by “Wine spritzers” (Don’t judge me wine snobs. Spritzers are the perfect summer/boat drink – ... Read More »

WISE WAZE

waze

Mobile app meets psychologist’s couch. How on earth did Waze know so much?  As I got on the Northway heading south recently, I turned on the app Waze, and in its extremely intuitive manner, it did not tell me if there was a vehicle stopped on the shoulder ahead, or even a cop.  Instead, I got this: OMG!!! HOW DID ... Read More »

MORE THAN MOJITOS

cars

If you are a Facebook friend, you have seen the photos I was tagged in from Cuba. It was a LEGAL trip!  Really! There were many mojitos, and some classic car rides throughout, but our recent trip to Havana was on the up and up.  Every day of our adventure had an educational purpose, something quite easy to accomplish for ...

AUTHENTICITY?

Loon

We have moved.  That is an entire blog post of its own, but I think I am still processing that immense change.  It is not blog-able just yet. We are now official residents of the Adirondacks.  North Country folk.  Country music is on the radio.  It is a glorious life this time of year.  Nights are cool, and days are ... Read More »

CHANGES

FullSizeRender-19

There is a time in one’s life when turning your dining room into a ping-pong room is a logical and inevitable choice. For more than two years, it was that time in my life. I had had a dining room table. It was beautiful and antique with the official sounding name of an “Irish kitchen table.” But it didn’t belong to ... Read More »

TYRANNY

tyranny-alert

Definition: despotic abuse of authority. I first envisioned this post to be about iTunes Match.  I made the mistake of signing up for iTunes Match in a moment of stinginess fiscal responsibility.  I did not want to upgrade my phone yet, and I had no room for my music on the phone.  iTunes Match seemed the PERFECT solution! Tyranny. iTunes Match ... Read More »
