My father has been gone 5 years. He died less than 2 weeks after his birthday so the time between the two dates has become a time where I think of him often.
The first year, my sister and I went to my favorite hot dog stand from childhood and ate Chicago dogs with fries in his honor.
This year, I was with my nephew and we happened to notice a shop that sold ice cream filled donuts! When the children were little, he had convinced them even if they were full, there was a separate “dessert pocket” in their stomachs so they could always join him for dessert. His favorite dessert was profiteroles and this was basically a giant version of one.

Boulder Public Library is the home to so many wonderful resources. The exhibit that I’ve been admiring for the past two months is on its way out. Here are a few highlights.
Both of these installations were created by Rozie Vajda who was kind enough to give me a demonstration as recorded in the video.
I took these photos at the beginning of the month when things in Boulder were snow covered, the sun was shining, and the reflections were blinding.
I spent a fantastic Saturday morning at The Book Stall in Winnetka, a wonderful independent book store with 75 years in the community. Author events and book clubs fill their calendar.
It was a dream-come-true feeling, reading ALIANA REACHES FOR THE MOON and answering questions from the crowd which included babes in arms, engaged children sitting on the floor, longtime friends in the area, and a lovely elderly woman from the neighborhood who attended with her caretaker. While signing books, I was able to have some wonderful moments with the attendees. The perfectly dressed older woman asked if I’d come home with her and read again later.
Due to technical challenges with WiFi these photos were taken with my iPhone and one was not my photo.
