I wonder what she's thinking... Not many good shots from this year's dance recital. The lighting is difficult, to say the least. But, I do like this one.

OLLI: Writing our lives

The is the 3rd or 4th time round that I have taken part in the "Writing Our Lives" class offer through our local OLLI@Auburn organization (Osher Lifelong Learners Institute at Auburn). I'm just a beginner! The class is filled with people who have been there for many...

Fall in New England

We spent a long weekend in Westerly, RI visiting my husband's family. Now that is what Fall should be like... frost in the morning, cool, clear beautiful days, and trees beginning to burst out in fiery colors. At home it was in the 80's. In New England it was in the...
