Rolling Away the Stone

on December 28th, 2012 by mark

The post Christmas blues have settled in like a kidney stone. Actually, the kidney stone has set in like the post Christmas blues. Not sure it has passed yet–but the very fact that I’m saying that means it probably hasn’t. It’s a weekend of pain in the Storer household. Sue had oral surgery today. Well, […]

The Meaning of the Season

on December 26th, 2012 by mark

Christmas 2012 was one of the best ever. BEST. EVER. Dad and Joanne were here and Shannon is just still at the age where believing is important, even if inside, one knows that Santa is more spirit than jolly red-suited guy. She hardly slept and it showed as after a sumptuous prime-rib dinner with all […]

Merry Christmas

on December 24th, 2012 by mark

The grief that has consumed the past two weeks has turned to love and memory. And on this glorious Christmas Eve, God reminds us that His light shines in the world still–and gives comfort to those of us who mourn for those who have gone before. I am unfortunately suffering from a kidney infection or […]

Ghosts

on December 15th, 2012 by mark

Eventually, we will want them to be angels. For now, they are ghosts. The past week is a tragedy. It could be no worse if it were written of in songs of old, about wars and massacres, about evil and fulfilling destinies of hatred and putrid ill-will. It was a list that reads like the […]

Michael Lavenant

on December 13th, 2012 by mark

I took an immediate liking to Michael Lavenant when first I met him some years ago. Our children, his two daughters and young son and our daughter go to the same school and Sue and Michael’s wife Dana served together in the PTO. The kids have done gymnastics together and we’ve been to the Lavenant’s […]

OK, so I blogged about wine…

on December 9th, 2012 by mark

Just back from a lovely trip north to San Simeon. We went with friends Randy and Janel and spent the weekend in a kind of wine and food hedonism. Just adults–took a break from parenting duties and stayed at the Morgan there on the beach a stone’s throw from William Randolph Hearst’s monument to himself. […]

Yuletide Has Arrived

on December 2nd, 2012 by mark

The Yuletide merriment is upon and I say, welcome! Welcome indeed. More Christmas, less….well…..everything. Sue has been laid low with a nasty, nasty cold. It hit her and triggered her asthma and that’s no good. She wound up at the Urgentcare office this morning because, she said, she felt like she had an elephant on […]
