... to load or unload from the port. Separating the ocean and the lake is a narrow neck of land on which stands a sort of fishing village. Looking to the right from the terrace one can see two bridges spanning the lake. They seem to be full of passing vehicles and pedestrians all day and far into the night.

Today was a travel day as tomorrow will be as well. It's not ...

It seems to be a family malady to accumulate books, and I can't think of parting with many of mine. My father has a basement full of bulging bookshelves and seems to know right away when a title is out of place or missing. My home office has one wall floor almost ...

At the end of my three hour stay, I ended up becoming quite good friends with them. We even shared, my favorite guilty pleasure, an issue of InTouch weekly and talked about Tiger Woods.

I realize here that black and white is a reality, not dumbed down like it was in New York. Someone ...
