In Grandma’s Garden

Posted on 24 February 2011

When my grandmother was thirteen, she was yanked from the place of her birth, a lush island off Italy’s western coast, a stone’s throw from Amalfi, to immigrate to America.  There, she had a rude awakening.  Not only were the streets not paved with gold, as a young teen, she was forced to become the […]

All That Glitters

A Prayer That Never Fails

Posted on 22 February 2011

Years ago, a good friend of mine, born into the Jewish religion and open to all faiths, advised me never to negate “the power of Mary.”  She was referring to Mary, the mother of Jesus.  Dan Brown’s* feminist spin on early Christianity notwithstanding, I’ll confess that I had never really prayed to Mary.  I tended […]

Baby, It’s Cold Outside … but Nice and Warm Inside!

Posted on 21 February 2011

After the last appreciable storm of 2011, a major branch on one of my oaks cracked beneath the weight of the white stuff, making casualties of three more branches.  When the snow melted, my husband played Paul Bunyan by removing the affected branches. After I played Florence Nightingale by doctoring the many cuts on his […]
