Life lessons from a rat

Catching the rat was amazing. But then it got even more astonishing.

My daughter’s ‘Friends’

I savored the ’90s sitcom for a decade. For her, it’s fast-forward.

Just right for one cook

Mom ran her kitchen with an efficiency that the military would envy.

There are leaf-rakers and leaf-blowers ...

... and I’d been ‘rake only’ for years. Then desperation set me on a new path.

A captain finds a new crew

My husband heard a new career beckon – with a buzzing noise.

Lessons from the lawn

The men who’ve tended my yard and garden have also helped me grow.

Bring back the phone booth

It used to be that a phone call was for two people – and two people alone.

Music and the lesson of love

My sister and I both played instruments. I had talent. But she had something more.

Shades that shimmer, hues that cry

When it came time to paint the house, we pulled out all the stops.

How Mom found me

I was lost, and she was 1,500 miles away. But all it took was one word.

My cultural collisions with Botswana

The encounters were cosmic, comic, compassionate, and life-changing.

(image)



I traveled on trust and couches

Who’d let a stranger stay with them? A lot of people, it turned out.

(image)



My island reckoning

The biggest challenge, for me, was to preserve my self-esteem.

(image)



The indoor wilds at outdoor parks

I got used to sharing space with critters – up to a point. 

(image)



Memorable fish I’ve been given

It’s best to learn to catch them, but I’m glad to be handed one, too. 

(image)



The Maine attraction

My first memory of the place is framed above the prow of a canoe.

(image)



Spinach helps me feel accepted

In Paris, it was learning how baguettes should be eaten; here, it’s liking ‘leaves.’

(image)



Summer announces itself with a ‘crack!’

For me, the most enjoyable screen door is a wooden one.
