With Memorial Day come and gone, we can call this summertime, don’t you think? After all, we have strawberries and crumbles, cherries and ice cream, and that’s a pretty solid start, if you ask me. I think this the perfect moment to encourage all of you to head out and pick up a copy of Yvette […]

For many of us, particularly those of us in large cities or places where folks speed straight from the front door to the car, it is incredibly easy to go about our days anonymously. We are known in our workplaces and homes and perhaps a few favorite shops or eateries, but as we walk down […]

I walk to the train station in the cool, quiet morning, rain misting gently from the sky.
