Summer’s coming. Will you be on a blanket at the beach, in a boat by the lake or cozy inside reading a book? I’ll be grilling white corn on the BBQ.

There are a couple of choices, that in retrospect seem pivotal, that I would like to redo. It’s a waste of time, really, so I try not to get stuck there. But every once in awhile, I wonder, what if….?

Never Say Goodbye

May 18, 2015

When Mad Men debuted in 2007 with these gorgeous opening credits, I was an instant fan. Online, I watched the title sequence again and again, even showing it to a web designer as inspiration for First Person Singular. It was with a heavy heart that I viewed the finale. But I made a celebration of it, inviting friends over for dinner of Pot au Feu and chocolate. I’ve already rewatched the final episode, and I’m comforted the show will live on in digital perpetuity.

How to Stay Afloat

My happily married parents had a wide circle of friends with whom they regularly socialized. There were weekly games nights in the neighborhood, monthly trips into Manhattan for dinner and theater, and the annual, raucous New Year’s Eve bash complete with noisemakers, pointy hats and party games. The group also rallied for the tough times – the hospital stays and the funerals. It was a potent lesson about the bonds of community and it has served me well.
