Staying warm and busy…

I always dream of summer when I see the Australian Open on TV. Sadly, my dream of warmth ends when I look out the window and see the deep freeze of Michigan’s winter. Oh well…3 more months and this ends!… Continue Reading →

Wondering…and hoping

Spent New Year’s Eve at a lovely gathering (thanks Amy and Karl!), and chatting with somebody who has really made me think. She had a philosophical point to dissect: is the world getting crazier, or are we being driven crazy… Continue Reading →
