  The holidays can be both a joyful and challenging time of year. If you spent the last couple weeks shopping for gifts, mailing cards, baking cookies, decorating, and spending times with loved ones, you’re exhausted by now! And there’s still one more holiday and a whole new year ahead....

Today’s mantra is chillax, floating to me out of a crashing surf.  Waves of anxiety arose from divergent currents – work, writing, personal life, wife’s health.  Two team members are out this week, neither planned, so I’ll pick up what load I can of their tasks.  I’m worried as my...

My wife and I are veteran browsers.  We spent some time this evening after work, first browsing at stores before turning to the web. Downtown, we browsed in a used book store, searching for books from our lists. My wife scored two hits, although not the book by John Green that we sought....

Hanging with the Girls—Ramallah July 4, 2011 In Ramallah restaurants have gardens, lush, often shaded, cozy or open and populated. The evening crowd gathers around seven and stays till one.
