  • January is a month of both promise and reality.  It begins a New Year and we resolve to do the things that we somehow forgot or just didn’t want to do the previous year.  And this is the year we’ll really get serious about… you fill in the blank.  But the reality is this: we … Continue reading “The January Blues”

  •   I had the privilege of seeing my two-month old granddaughter for the first time yesterday.  Charlotte Jane Keller came into this world in February of 2010 and we had our first conversation last night.  She, of course, spoke in her own language, which was rich in coo’s and ahh’s and lavished with wonderful smiles.  … Continue reading “Legacy”
