Rediscovering Uriah Heep

In hindsight, perhaps my generation really was apathetic; or, I might suggest, we learned to be quite cynical…cynical and proud of it!  After Kennedy’s assassination, few of us believed little if anything that our federal government officials chose to share. The Warren Commission hadn’t answered our questions; it had only raised additional concerns.  LBJ had […]


Innocent Bystander

For the most part, my father was a very unassuming man in attitude and countenance.  It didn’t help him at the age of ten to have been compared to his older, more handsome siblings.  All nine were lined up in front of some old French woman who had decided it was her position in the […]

Growing Wiser

By January 6th, our tree was hanging on for dear life.  We never put it in a bucket of water. It stood on its own wooden stand on top of the marble and cherry Victorian table.  The silver tips were very brittle and drooping long before the Feast of the Epiphany arrived. Time to put […]
