Life amidst the not-life


We sure seem to be right in the middle of the Sad Season.

I’m very sorry to hear of the passing of Robert B. Parker, who invented the detectives Spenser, Jesse Stone, and Sunny Randall.

The list of those we’ve lost in the last few days, even not including Haiti, is long. Winters, I think, are rough in general….


  1. Maureen Meyers says:

    I hate to add to your list, but just heard that Frank Schnell passed away Monday.

  2. John Chamblee says:

    Just finished going back through John Adams, by McCollough, and I had been recently thinking similar thoughts about the difficulties of winter. It has always been so.
