August 10     Michal Rovner   I have numbered all the blocks in my ancestral walls.  This has enabled me to recreate them stone by stone everywhere I go.  It all fits to create the tomb I now have to learn to leave.  I must change the equation and reorder the numbers...

It was this time of year when I brought the fruit salad to the hospital. I remember making it, I was so diligent to include the fruits my mother loved to eat - strawberries, melon, oranges, grapes, kiwi - sweet red apples.

My version of spring fever: every year around March I want to run away. I once imagined taking my husband and kids along, looking at homes for sale in Maine, New Mexico, Oregon and even Austrailia. Seeking employment, checking schools. This year is new - I want to run away, just me. Our sons are...

The sun is warm on my face, but the breeze coming off the water is cool and causes my shoulders to hunch a little in my too-light jacket. Autumn is here and my heart is light.
