We had Easter dinner at our house tonight. Besides my mom and my siblings (less the Canadian contingent, of course), my mom's sisters came. They asked about pictures of our trip, and I was reminded that I haven't shared a lot of the snapshots we took. I'll keep at it. Just for fun, I took… Continue reading Tuesday at the Village
So I said some time ago that I was going to tell you about some friends of mine when I could do them justice. I'm going to try. I grew up in a church where the only instruments are the voices of the people, and boy, they can sing. I cut my teeth on a cappella… Continue reading Receiving Generosity
We have a very different view from our bedroom window tonight. No cows. Just lights. We drove in this evening on the George Washington Parkway, with the Potomac on our left and the white marble monuments glowing in the last light of dusk.

So tonight I was sitting in the office, paying bills and going through some other paperwork. I sorted through and stacked up a few checks that I haven't dealt with. (Yes,… Continue reading It Slipped My Mind
Dear Paul, I remember a lot of things about our wedding day fondly, but one of my favorites is that we both rushed our vows. It's possible that the minister paused at an odd time, but I think it was because we were both so eager to get married. So we each said "I will"… Continue reading The First Ten Years
No, I am not still on the beach. I apologize for the radio silence. There wasn't much to say about our remaining time at the beach (except that it was fantastic), and then I was sick again, and we got on a plane, and it was back to the craziness. We did get to go… Continue reading Hiatus
