  • Grace Notes

    A number of years ago, one of my daughters was a “secret shopper.”
    She actually got paid to go into restaurants and eat or clothing stores and shop. All she had to do was be inconspicuous as she observed the store’s employees.
    Then after leaving the store, she would write a report of her observations: “The salespeople seemed too busy talking to each other to pay attention to customers,” or “The server disappeared as soon as she brought my food and failed to suggest dessert.”

  • Late winter pruning

    In a fit of gratitude, I made a list of the things I loved about my life the other day.  
    I managed eight solid things, none were frivolous; and one prompted the whole exercise: I love warm February days.
    This beautiful February day set into motion a very productive weekend. It felt fantastic to get some good old-fashioned garden clean up done with my husband by my side and the sheep grazing freely about.  
    It makes you feel optimistic about the rest of your life.
