Sunday Best – December 27, 2020

As the year draws to a close, I start making lists, counting my blessings. Normally these lists are full of things I’ve seen and done – lots of travels, celebrations with loved ones, all sorts of buzzy activity. This year, though intensely busy in different ways, has markers that are quieter and a little harder to […]

  Years ago, we had a big anniversary party for my grandparents, who at that point had been married for sixty-five years. The whole room was packed with Colllinses, eating and talking and laughing. I was able to sit by my grandpa for a little while and he looked around the big noisy room and […]

Every new beginning comes from some other beginning’s end.     – Seneca (or Semisonic)   Last week, I took a long hike with a dear friend, up through a forest that had been consumed by fire a few years back. It was not quite as conventionally pretty as other hikes nearby, with its ghost […]

I have a big birthday coming up, which naturally leads to all kinds of reflection. It’s great to think of the long arc of endeavor in life, of all that’s been tried and some that’s been accomplished. But it’s even more wonderful to consider the long arc of luck. This passage by John O’Donohue steered […]

Friendship is a sheltering tree.                   – Samuel Taylor Coleridge Here’s the wonderful, hopeful, loopy thing about gratitude: once you’ve experienced friendship, you want to be a friend.

Sunday Best – January 21, 2018 (with news!)

This past week marked a joyful beginning, where many years of professional endeavor came to a new and exciting starting point (click here for the news from Putnam).  At other beginnings, whether first days of school, or moving days, or first dates, or new jobs, I’ve felt the familiar flutters of anticipation, happiness, determination, hopefulness, and […]
