(For those of you who don’t know, a snowbird is a Northeasterner who spends their winters down in the sunny and warm Southeastern United States.)

I went […]

The Beauty of Time

I had the pleasure of hosting guests this past weekend—family I don’t get to see often, but always welcome the opportunity when it arises. We tend to get past what’s going on in our lives rather fluidly and start pondering broader subjects. Nothing topical—we never discussed the state of insanity that is the world at […]
