Destination What?

By Erika Hoffman

“I’d like a destination wedding,” my daughter stated as I picked her up from the airport. I didn’t look over at her but kept my eyes fixed on the road instead. “Lots of my friends have them now.” I remained mute. I turned on the signal as we approached our neighborhood. “I’ve been to ones […]

Happy When I’m Hiking

By Sandra R. Nachlinger

“I’m happy when I’m hiking, pack upon my back.”(Old English hiking song) I sang those lyrics as a Girl Scout, but only recently did I really take them to heart. Last spring I picked up a brochure from the Auburn (Washington) Senior Activity Center and studied the list of hikes and walks scheduled for the […]

My husband deliberately dresses shlumpy. As a veterinarian, he wears scrubs to work. Dressing up means putting on good jeans, and no outfit is complete without pet hairs. To me, saving animal lives is way higher on the manliness scale than his fashion profile. But there are times in life when you must dress up. […]

Where the Heart Resides

By Rose Ann Sinay

I “skinnyed” my way through the stacked boxes populating our new home, looking for an uncluttered space to take a deep breath. This house had served as our get-away cabin for the past four years. It was fully furnished (flea-market style), and stocked with food and clothes enough to get us by for a week […]

When Fear Mushrooms

By Jeffery Cohen

Though my father was born in the city, he was a real farmer at heart. He would patiently wait out winter, anxiously anticipating spring. Once he was sure the last frost had past, he would pull out a shovel and start turning over the soil in his garden where he’d plant row after row of every […]

If you want to jump start the whole mid-life crisis experience, pop your youngest child on a plane that will fly over territory that’s spelled with letters in an alphabet you can’t sing a song to only to land half a world away in a place that’s flexing newly “nuclearized” fingers. In fact you can […]

China Tales

By Linda DeMers Hummel

My friend married into a family of means, New England types who for generations had been distinguished bankers and lawyers.
