  • Another summer is winding down, and I still haven’t gone fishing.  How I long to be sitting in a rowboat on some quiet lake at dusk with my spinning gear and old Jitterbug.  To listen to the “glub,” “glub," “glub” of that surface lure waiting for a largemouth bass to break the otherwise stillness of the lake when he charged it.

    It was the morning after Bobby Kennedy’s assassination when my brother Ken and I went fishing for the last time.  We fished at Lake Mashapaug in northeastern Connecticut that morning.

  • I was doing my early morning XM radio channel surfing when my ears caught a bouncy and light tune that also seem vaguely familiar.  I turned around to view the window on my radio which revealed I was listening to an Aaron Copland piece.  It was called "Duo for Flute and Piano."

  • “Keep your politics and your political views to yourself” was a fundamental principle my father pounded solidly into my character. It’s one of the many principles that he successfully passed onto me.   Several of the rules he had set for his four children I chose not to pass on to my own son. I found that my father did not live by some of the rules and principles he had set for us.  Hypocrisy can be a difficult pill to swallow.
