Mary’s Month

Since my childhood I have always anticipated the month of May.  On the first day of the month, my heart feels excitement of having 31 wonderful days to give special recognition and honor to someone I love dearly – Mary.  May is Mary’s month. Mary has been in my life...

Can Fiction Become Reality?

We each have our favorite ways of relaxing.  One of mine is reading, especially mysteries. Besides being engrossing and entertaining, some also serve as tools for learning and reflection. This has been my experience when reading the mysteries from Louise Penny’s Chief...

Alleys
