As of October 1st, our kittens Martha and Amelia are one year old, and are now officially cats. Big cats! Compare the two of them between March and September: And on October 1st: To celebrate the occasion I have taken every Vine video I’ve recorded of them since their adoption in January, and combined all […]
Sunday was bright and warm. At church in the morning we heard a message from Reverend Paula Dempsey of the Alliance of Baptists and sang an Emma Lou Diemer gradual. After a Thai lunch we walked down through DC to the National Gallery, stopping by the White House and the Renwick Gallery en route.
Sandy was an epic storm: a tropical cyclone interacting with a strong Northeaster, a kinked jet stream, warm Atlantic waters, and a full moon, all combining into a massive tropical — and later post-tropical — cyclone that veered west from the Atlantic into the East Coast, hitting the northeast US hard with strong wind, heavy […]

I guess it’s time I came clean on this: I’ve been living with someone, and we have shared a bed for over half a year now. She’s much younger than me — less than half my age, in fact — though far older in some ways, and I care for her like a daughter, providing […]
