It Comes in Threes September 16, 2017

                Honestly, the day started out just fine if you don’t count the fact that I had to set my alarm for 6 on a Saturday morning.  I drove my son to his rehearsal at the Atlanta Symphony Youth Orchestra, drank coffee and wrote in the audience, and was generally peaceful, if a little sleepy. …

On the Road with Mario September 2, 2017

Day Drinking as a Public Service July 9, 2017
