I love the flock of seasonal visitors each year because it allows me to indulge my favorite pastime, people-watching

They say children are overscheduled in this day and age, but what about us?

I realized I was already lamenting the end of the cold months

A golden, transcendent moment when the horsecollars came off and possibility reigned

A gentleman who exuded an infectious joie de vivre

Augurs of change

I was particularly struck by the hosts’ vegetable garden, which was inside a veritable deer and rabbit-proof wire-mesh fortress

I would make a more reflective Hamlet now

The best of the fluke fisherman come in all varieties ranging from priest to dubious to the lucky child who lands a doormat

Not only beauty but guilt and innocence can be in the eye of the beholder
