I flew out to San Francisco this past weekend to attend the concert for which we had purchased tickets last year. This particular concert was not part of our season subscription, and I didn’t know how the seats would be. I was on the 8th row and could see the keyboard beautifully! I was thrilled […]
A very large woman, about 10 -15 steps ahead of me on the escalator, lost her balance and fell backward. Her travel companion stepped to the side to allow her to fall all the way to the bottom of the 3 story escalator and was yelling at her, “Get up!” “I can’t! I can’t!” she […]
This year was the 160th birthday of the Point Bonita Lighthouse that provides safe passage into the San Francisco bay. I loved volunteering as a docent there at the lighthouse for 3 years!

These are things we revere, we reverence. That which is sacred: love, forgiveness, saying goodbye.
If Jones wants to attempt to make some small amends, he should fund an independent group to care for America’s homeless LGBT youth population–a group that has nothing to do with conversion therapy or religion, just loving acceptance.
I guess you can now say that I officially live in Atlanta. We went walking in Piedmont Park where I took the quintessential “Atlanta” photo of the mid-rises reflecting in Lake Clare.
