  • Nov 24, 2008 at 6:26PM

Who I am is partly due to my family history, my current experiences and my hope for the future. But if I can not remember where I came from, or what to do with myself now, who am I?

Hail to the Chiefs

When we moved from Illinois 18 months ago, one of the little things that helped our family conquer homesickness was the very road that got us to Mercer Island. If we hopped on Interstate 90 going east, we would eventually find ourselves in downtown Chicago. It’s the same Interstate, but in the Windy City, I-90 is called The Kennedy Expressway. Funny, Chicagoans also call another one of their major tollways The Eisenhower.

The luxury of the lily

  • Nov 24, 2008 at 6:25PM

From the earliest times, lilies have been found in flower gardens. Few gardeners are indifferent to them. Their color, beauty of form and heady scent all add to the beauty of the garden, and, in addition, they can help beautify a room when used as cut flowers. Of the scented types, even one stem can perfume a room.

How to lend support when someone you know has cancer

  • Nov 24, 2008 at 6:25PM

Support from family and friends is critical to cancer patients going through treatment, but what should that support look like? Many of us worry we won’t know what to say or do, or worse, that we’ll do the wrong thing.

A book worth finishing

  • Nov 24, 2008 at 6:24PM

For the first 40 or so years of my life, if I started a book, I finished it. But then the sense of my own mortality hit, and I realized that there weren’t enough days left in my life to waste any of them on bad books. So, reluctantly, and with some trepidation, I adopted a new philosophy. If I started reading a book and really, truly thought it was terrible, I'd just stop and put it aside. It’s still hard for me to give up on a book, but I’ve gotten better at it.

In praise of a winter view

  • Nov 24, 2008 at 6:24PM

The past four months have been a meteorological phenomenon of astronomical proportions. In other words, this winter has been out of this world. And unlike the way we normally use that phrase, I’m not sure we’d all agree it was a good thing.

Birds show skill and flare in coping in urban environment

  • Nov 24, 2008 at 6:24PM

A few years ago, while outside on my Mercer Island back deck, I watched a Steller’s Jay belt out an exact mimic of a Bald Eagle’s call. If I hadn’t been standing close enough to see its beak moving, I wouldn’t have believed the call actually came from the jay.
