Happy New Year!

January 2021- we have made it through 2020, and it was difficult for us all.  It was watching parts of our world disappearing, closing or changing.

Tis the season..not quite like last Christmas season. Two Christmas classics come to mind-Charles Dickens' “A Christmas Carol” and the movie with Jimmy Stewart “It's a Wonderful Life”. In each, the themes and values expressed-generosity, joy, kindness, redemption-just to name a few- ring...

It's about time, May 2020. The last month of Spring! I'm getting anxious to sit outside and enjoy warm sun. We also, unfortunately, are in our 2nd month of the covid-19 experience in Maine. I guess this is the new normal. I...
