Hikers in the Fog

Dear Reader, There is a beloved Soviet short film called “Hedgehog in the fog” (yozhik v tumane) that depicts an adorable, little rodent who pokes around in a murky wood to find his friend “bear.” With no more than 10 minutes of action, this 1975 cartoon has been embraced by international audiences and endures as...

When on Winnipesaukee (Part 1)

Dear Reader How many of you would like a weekend to totally unplug? …I wouldn’t! I love technology and all that it has to offer, but I realize that I may not be in the majority on this one.

What to say about Chelsea

Dear Reader, You can learn a lot about an area through Google Maps; so much, in fact, that you can fool yourself into believing that you really know a place. However, my recent trip to Chelsea, MA taught me that you need to actually visit an area to know what it’s really like. While I... Continue Reading →
