Most recent review is of John Robinson's Heading Home.

To Mosque or Not to Mosque

Everyone from political figureheads to next door neighbors seem to have an opinion on whether or not the Imam(prayer leader) of a mosque 12 blocks from Ground Zero should be permitted to build an Islamic community center closer to

the place where innocent victims lost lives in the 9/11 tragedy.

Many Lessons for a Life Worth Living

Every summer we have a nesting pair of birds to set up residence in the birdhouse in our backyard. For many years, it was a purple martin house, though purple martins never used it. Great crested flycatchers found it and returned year after year. We knew they had arrived when we heard them in the trees. If they thought I was watching, they would fly away.
