Tennis court, Lachine. "Don't I look like Victoria Azarenka, but 9 months pregnant," That's what I said to a friend, yesterday as we prepared to play a game of tennis. I made a little WOOOO sound. Well, we weren't  PLAYING  a game, per se. Hitting  the ball back and forth is more...

The old angler's laugh sounded like a howl. It chilled me like a wind. I remembered there were coyotes in Westchester. “I have no favorite river,” he insisted. “Why discriminate?

I was lost for so long, and I didn't even know it!  It is sometimes such a slow process that, over time, you don't know how much you're missing unless you take inventory of yourself.  Coca-Cola.  Sandals.  Coupons.  Notepad and pen.  Check, check, cheeeck, and CHECK ! ! !  They're all here!  It's...
