A year ago I blogged about gathering virtually for Passover (and for others, on Easter). No one thought then we would still be dealing with COVID19, albeit with many of us “vaxxed” or on the way to be such. Nonetheless its a big deal that we were able to gather in our small but safe core. My daughter took care of making sure a new seder plate she procured for her family got “filled” appropriately. And the daughter stepped in and handled all the kitchen duties for her mom this...
So my thoughts focus on when we can get together again.   You might ask why but I suspect most know.   After all, in other times, many would be looking forward to hosting or visiting family towards the end of this week into next weekend. Usually a big meal serves as the centerpiece. Instead, this time any meal involves those in the immediate household; at best we can employ video technology to perhaps widen the size of the gathering and connect family and friends around a vir...

A good number of us gather with family this weekend. Some gathered today for Easter. Others including members of my family gathered Friday and Saturday eves for Passover.

Vacations involve a bit of work no matter where we go. As I wrote about and retain an interest in siting sports stadiums (stadia?) I always try to include one on a visit. Since I enjoy clients involved in transit and transportation issues, I check out the issues wherever we visit. I also take advantage of opportunities to gain perspectives on current issues. This spring recess centered around a visit to our daughter who lives in Los Angeles. Instead on centering our visit...

I am not sure what you are doing this weekend but it is likely that you are with family or friends celebrating Easter, Passover, or April Fools day . What do you think about memory? It is a strange thing. Moments in our lives recorded on our nervous systems with electrical impulses. Some are etched so deeply we recall all the details what we were doing, saying, smelling, seeing. Sometimes these moments are snapshots in the collective conscience of a generation like the day K...

We did not host this year.  We always hosted; tradition of sorts, and not just for Passover. Noneless, we joined my good friend Joshua for the seder he hosted with his wife Linda; I found myself rather relaxed with no carving and other related duties; we enjoyed the company and the food. The next night we joined my mom in a restaurant for a 2nd night seder, more than 200 dined, an amalgam of families and friends who knew not those at adjoining tables. I enjoyed playing the r...
