A Rainbow of Sunsets

Posted on September 29th, 2010 by Maria Santoferraro

Well, another sunset season is coming to an end for me, and I have to say that it makes me a little melancholy. From the months of April through October, the rotation of the Earth and the sun are perfectly aligned, so I get to see the sun drop into Lake Erie on a regular […]

“…and I have learned that to have a good friend is the purest of all God’s gifts, for it is a love that has no exchange of payment. It is not inherited, as with a family. It is not compelling, as with a child. And it has no means of physical pleasure, as with a […]

“Life gets better after thirty. Then it gets fantastically beautiful. Guilt gets lost in time.

A Gift Every Man Needs

Posted on September 21st, 2010 by Maria Santoferraro

It’s All Semantics

Posted on September 15th, 2010 by Maria Santoferraro

“An unbelievably large part of happiness/unhappiness is determined by semantics; e.g., the couple who used to be childless is now ‘child-free.’ A nudist colony (tacky) is now a ‘clothes-free resort’ (not quite so tacky). So…you are not dateless, you are date-free. Bald is dandruff immune. In starvation circumstances fatsos are better equipped than skinnies. Having […]

Image via Wikipedia How did this happen? How did the world find out about my passion for sea glass? It seems like everyone is looking for the colorful frosted pieces of glass that wash up along the shores of the beach. On my local beaches I used to be the only one walking along the […]
