Because We Are, a Novel of Haiti, sat in my queue of audiobooks for a few months, waiting for me to get up the nerve to listen to it.… Read more

This is the third in a series of posts about favorite mystery TV series. Here’s another one I think you’ll enjoy.
This series is called Life. I found it by accident on Damian Lewis’s IMDb page. He’s a good actor and I was looking for something new to watch.… Read more

I’m a big music fan, in case you hadn’t noticed. I love to make music; I love to watch and listen as other people make music. So I naturally gravitate to summertime music camps and festivals. I love to read the lineups for music festivals and to imagine going to see all those wonderful performers.… Read more
