Today I said farewell to Perseus, who had lived with me longer than any human or non-human animal except for Greg.

Why not also celebrate the birthdays of people who are not particularly famous, but who have nevertheless left an indelible mark on our lives?   Tuesday, June 6, 2017 will… Read More

As we… Read More
