For many of us mother’s day is an opportunity to lavish love and gifts upon our mothers and grandmothers, to receive such gifts or to fondly remember those beloved mothers of blessed memory. Many of our associations of the holiday revolve around FTD and Hallmark Cards but the day is about much more than cards […]

What a year! We’ve endured a pandemic, a contentious presidential election, an insurrection, racism and protests against racism and a trial and conviction of a police officer for murder of a black man.

This week on Wednesday we will once again observe St. Patrick’s Day. Like so many things this year it will seem odd not to have St. Patrick Day parades and corned beef and cabbage specials at local eateries. Traditionally on St. Patrick’s Day everyone is Irish for the purposes of celebration. So go ahead and […]

It’s been a tough year. We are almost to the exact one-year mark of our first COVID shutdown. I remember how scared I was. I’m happy to report I am no longer so scared but I do have a deep sense of unease over how all of this is playing out. Why am I feeling […]
