The Gift of Giving

In early December of 2017, a chef friend called me and during our conversation, it somehow came up that we should figure out a way to feed families in need during the holidays. I’m not even sure how we got on the topic, we were probably joking about it, but that discussion got me thinking that there was no reason why we couldn’t. I just needed to figure out how. 

After ...

A Day When the Sea Was More Hostile Than the Wind or Sun

He was with a girl a few years younger, a woman who looked to be a grandmother, and several small children. His role ...

This is what I was thinking as I was standing in line on the sidewalk at 11:00 in the morning.

There was a line outside the DMV because there was no room inside the DMV. The inside was filled with disgruntled motorists sitting in chairs holding tickets with numbers on them. Numbers like D5 ...
