Occupying Free Time

Dear Reader, If you were unexpectedly granted an evening free from work or commitments, how would you spend it? My guess is that how you consider this question is heavily influenced by whether you are more of a planner or more of a go-with-the-flow type — a type A or a type B. I am […]

Fall Phase Two

Dear Reader, Daylight Saving Time ended today in the United States. Although I woke up early this morning, I wore sunglasses on my morning commute because we have fallen back one hour. The days are becoming shorter and the nights are beginning earlier. We are now in phase two of fall. If I were to […]

Pumpkin Time!

Dear Reader, Not all hours are created equal. This week for me has been filled with work. Our team has a big project in December that we already must devote much of our attention to. Even this week, we met for a few hours on Sunday, because we just wouldn’t have had the time to […]

They had booked their flights in July and I was hesitant to plan too many outdoor activities because I […]

Halloweentown, MA

Dear Reader, Have you ever seen the popular Halloween movie “Hocus Pocus” from 1993? This classic Disney film is one that I have seen many times in my youth. Although the action-packed plot is captivating in itself, one thing that always interested me about the movie was the quaint town in which the plot took […]
