Shifting Priorities and Unexpected Opportunities

Weeks spent in quarantine force on us a slower pace compared to those rushed days of the recent past. I feel like I’ve been swimming in molasses with waves of sadness, fear, worry and occasional absurdity rolling over me depending on the day. Time is a mess. There’s too much screen time, not enough time to sleep and plenty of time to think. We’re all trying to cope, but the big takeaway is that even the best conference technology is no substitute for real human connection. It doesn’t take long for isolation to take its toll.

What to Wear?

Clothing makes a bold statement. It offers the world a distinct impression of who and what we are.

Maggie and the Bees

On a summer weekend earlier in July, my husband and I traveled up to Maine to visit our friends, Maggie and Bob, who had recently built their forever home overlooking Sebago Lake and the White Mountains. This was our first trip to see them since their house was constructed and while we had heard stories about its unique location, the open airy feel of the living areas and how the natural environment around the property had been carefully incorporated into the house’s look and feel, I was unprepared for the magnificence of what awaited us as we drove up the long dirt road that served as their private driveway.
