Obama supporters in Harlem…Sad

I made a decision when I started keeping a blog that it would NOT be a place for my political views. I like to keep them to myself. I don’t feel like espousing my viewpoint would really do much to change anyone else’s, nor do I want to have to argue with anyone about why […]

Door to Door Magazine Solicitors

Yesterday afternoon, I was in my office and H was upstairs doing her homework and the doorbell rang. I looked out and there was a young man standing there, no car visible anywhere, and I didn’t recognize him, so we didn’t answer the door. I watched him walk away from our house, up the street […]

Je voudrais allez a` Paris!

When I was a little girl I read the Madeline books…”In an old house in Paris that was covered with vines lived 12 little girls in two straight lines…”It was pure poetry! From that moment I was smitten, and dreamed of going to Paris. I was 30 years old before I actually made it there, […]
