Comments Off on Sunday Wanderings

Today, as part of her preparation to become a Bat Mitzvah, Leah is helping out at Mitzvah Day at our synagogue. (A mitzvah is a “good deed.”) She has a special connection to animals (they all love her, seriously), as does her partner, and so they are working with the Friends for Life mobile van […]

Happy Birthday, Dad

Mom and Dad Cruise

You would love my dad.  Everyone does.  He is, quite frankly, the easiest person to get along with on the planet.  If you are at a dinner party you will want him to sit by you.  Much like his dad, he can talk to anyone, tell a really good joke, and, from what I can […]

Good on Paper

June 15, 2006


You know the phrase. Everything looks good. In theory. On paper. On paper, my mom is in complete remission. Her white cell count has rebounded. Her blood work is perfect. She’s a textbook example of someone recovering from a stem cell transplant and round of high dose chemotherapy. Congratulations! You guys can leave Little Rock […]

The other shoe

February 12, 2006


I’ve written this post in my head about 30 times before summoning the courage to actually write it. And each time it had a different emotion behind it, or 50 all at once. But, I finally figured out how it should be written. And I’m going to do my best to make this match the […]
