My family came to the United States between 1903 and 1906. I’m sure I’ve relatives in Mexico, but I wouldn’t know where to look to find them. I know so many of their stories; to a one they all take place in the U.S. I feel we are lucky that we know our stories and […]
Scop. Love the word. First heard it when I was in an English class and we were reading an English translation of Beowolf. The idea that a scop (storyteller) would have a special place in Viking society was an appealing thought. In communities the storyteller is also a main culture bearer. When I stopped […]
Lili was the one who started it. She liked snugs. As a tiny bit of a thing she would come and snuggle with her family as she was waking up. That was a snug. Pánfilo must have picked up on this with no example and no training because he beat the girls to James for […]

When I was a mother of young children, it was seeing the sweet, or quick, expressions of love that the kiddoes had created. As I’ve gotten older the definition has been more haphazard in nature. […]
Random thoughts Being married to a fellow who loves numbers has modified my perspective on a lot of things. Example – He loves prime numbers. They are special to him. By extension they’ve developed a special meaning to me. 60 is a fine number = 4X15, 2×30, 20+10×2. Cool. But 61, ah, that […]
Happy Father’s Day! Words can be funny. Put a sentence together and it can have so many layers of meanings. Most guys choose to be dads. Most guys who are dads chose to fill that role. Most guys who choose to be dads stay connected with their children. This is the day when we […]
