    photo friday: katz’s deli

    My mind is confused. So confused. Able to get outside after months of hibernating inside, I keep finding myself thinking things like “Wow, the vines have grown fast.” “Where are all the spring blossoms?” Yes, spring. I keep thinking it is spring. Because I can finally get outside. Because I […]

    parent of an adult!

    The day has come. My eldest child is no longer a “child” but an adult. Of course, she’s still in high school and lives at home. We’re still looking at 4.5 years or more of supporting her, so she’s still a dependent. But she’s an adult. She can vote. She […]

college search: rhode island colleges

Camille had a few Rhode Island schools on her list at the start, but by the time we made our plans to visit the northeast, only one was left. Brown University. Urban campus, good academic reputation, a nice fit for what she wants. I thought we were going to not […]

what’s next?

Taking Camille on tours of campus has me considering “What comes next?” For now, I am happy in my job, but I fear the day may come that my job may disappear or the demands will be ones that I don’t care to accept any more. Then what? What can […]

The Brooklyn brownstone that Camille and I stayed in on our latest trip to NYC was a block away from the Brooklyn Flea Market. Not the *big* one, but a smaller version, the Fort Greene Flea. Nevertheless, we had a lovely time exploring. I bought a new ring and Camille […]
