Day 1696: The key to happiness

One of my keys to happiness is learning about the experience of others. So I am happy to ask you, here and now, about your keys to happiness. Another key to happiness, for me, is sharing my thoughts and photos in this daily blog. That’s the key to our hotel in Edinburgh, lying on a […]

Day 1695: Humans

I’m seeing lots of humans (and humanity) in Edinburgh, Scotland, during the 70th Festival Fringe.   Those last three photos include extraordinary humans Ron Lynch and Natalie Palamides. Ron suggested we accompany him yesterday to see Natalie’s wonderful one-woman show, LAID (reviewed here by humans) and so we did, with many other appreciative humans. That […]

Day 1692: Traveling light

For as long as I can remember, whenever I travel, I travel light. That is, I bring along as little as possible. Personally, the less baggage I’m carrying around, the freer I feel. There are things I have to take, though, as I pack for today’s flight to Edinburgh. Those necessities are  my passport,  my […]

Day 992: Wait People

Rather than use the words “waitress” and “waiter” these days, I often use the term “wait people.” You don’t have to wait, people, for me to tell you why. I tend to avoid gender specific labels, like waitress. If you want more examples of that, you don’t have long to wait, people.  Instead of saying […]

Day 778: Getting back to each other

Yesterday, in beautiful, non-New-England-ish* Southern California, my son and I had fun in the sun and mild weather while we were waiting for Ron Lynch to get back to us. If you don’t know who Ron Lynch is, let me get back to you about that, right now. Getting back to my 20’s, Ron Lynch […]

Day 776: Just Ask

If you have any questions or if you need anything, just ask. What have you got to lose? Sometimes I hesitate to just ask, out of fear of a negative reaction. However, not asking means I will get no response, at all.  If I ask, at least I have a chance of getting something in […]

Day 603: What I missed

Last night, I missed a segment of the Emmy awards on TV. After I turned off the TV to spend some time with my son, Aaron, and my boyfriend, Michael,  a comedian I admire, Louis C.K., won an Emmy for best comedy writing. I found the photo, above, through Google images (which tells me it resides […]

Day 599: Signs, again

As I’m writing this — back home in Boston after a whirlwind 5-night visit to Edinburgh, Scotland with my 16-year-old son, Aaron — the room is very cool, with the windows open, at 6 AM. Signs of the impending autumn in super-seasoned New England, USA? We shall see.   Usually, before I publish a post, […]

Day 598: Surprises

Today, my son Aaron and I are leaving Edinburgh, Scotland, flying on a couple of airplanes, and returning to our home near Boston, Massachusetts in the United States. It’s been a wonderful trip. Which was not surprising, considering the wonderful times I had in Edinburgh, the two times I’ve visited before. I don’t have a […]
