NO BROOM IN THE BRIEFCASE

My Dear Friends and Readers, It was a cold windy wet day in Baltimore City. It was the kind of day that I would have rather stayed in bed and read a good book. It was not to be so. There are days in the life of a lawyer that dictate action within very narrow time lines created by the courts of law. Today was one of those days. But

ROMEO AND JULIET REVISED

My Dear Friends and Readers, One of the rewards of traveling is to expand self awareness by temporarily experiencing  the lives of others whose living environments differ from our own.  As humans we have to go outside of what we know to experience and understand what we don’t know that we don’t know.  This weekend I went to Taylor Falls Minnesota and St. Croix  Falls Wisconsin for a wedding celebration

Thank you Mother for Trying to Raise My Social Status

Dears Friends and Readers, Today I am announcing that I am giving up my self-imposed role of beggar.  Beggars are not to be confused with paupers.
