The last of the afternoon sun shimmered on the water at Annapolis City Dock. It was the second Friday of the month and after a long hiatus, the monthly Milonga had returned. Seated in folding white chairs we listened and watched. Argentine Tango. A live performance of music and dancers. Subtle and passionate. Smooth andContinue reading “Starting Over.

Maybe I can do a little garden raking and clearing, but what I’d really like to do is kick back and readContinue reading “Blue Skies Smiling at Me”
