i read the news today, oh boy ….

So, this was published in our local paper today ….

This morning, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette published one of my essays as part of its Page 2 Portfolio feature on … well, page 2. (Yeah, I stayed up until after midnight – nothing unusual there – to see it go live. IT’S THE LITTLE THINGS IN LIFE, FOLKS.) 

It’s the piece about our simple family vacations at the Jersey shore and a special memory of our last trip “downashore” (as we Philly folks say) with my dad, who passed away suddenly at the age of 44. When I wrote this, I was feeling incredibly grateful that Hurricane Sandy spared my aunt and uncle’s beach home, and I couldn’t help thinking if there was a connection. 
Below is the picture of the Strathmere street (before high tide) that my brother sent me in his first text message. The house is a block or so up the road. 

Wishing all of you and your loved ones a wonderful Thanksgiving, with many blessings always.
