Another Day of Sun

I’ve always held musicals at arm’s length. I’m weak that way. Everybody has a blind spot when it comes to movies, a certain genre or actor that they just can’t stand. My wife’s aunt has an irrational hatred of Tom Hanks. Every time she sees him in a movie, she shakes her head and says […]

That’s More Like It

That evening, my brother called. He told me that our father was struck down by a combination heart attack […]
