For those of you new to the area, have no fear. Art is alive and thriving here in the mountains. Granted, none of us have been visiting galleries recently, but they dot the landscape throughout the … more
For something completely different, I’m having issues. This time, it’s my eyes, which is “serious, and nothing to fool around with” according to my ophthalmologist, as if I … more
“Five hundred twenty-five thousand moments so dear. Five hundred twenty-five thousand six hundred minutes—how do you measure, measure a year?” Those words were written and … more
I was slightly nervous about going in for a COVID-19 test. Even though I had no reason to suspect that I might have contracted the dreaded virus, my doctor recommended it as “a matter of … more
