  • Last Sunday I felt like I was under siege.  
    There were starlings everywhere; so much so that I feared being splattered with poop at every turn.  
    The surprising thing about starlings is that they are everywhere yet not from here.  It’s another story of one good intention going bad.
    Apparently back in 1890, in honor of a Shakespeare festival in New York City’s Central Park, 60 European starlings were released.

  • I like to tell people that every obsession I have is my youngest daughter’s fault. She got me hooked on jewelry, shoes, pedicures, purses, expensive cosmetics — I blame her, only because the alternative is to blame myself.

    Do you yearn?
