My Chameleon daughter

This is my 17 year old. I’ve not been able to get her to let me take her photos for a long time. I think the last time she did it, she was 14 or 15. So i am grateful for her to give me the time. As she is very busy with friends &…

the queen makes the chessboard

My parents went to Scotland last September. They brought back stories of their adventures & photographs as proof of them. They also brought back a name of an author who writes a series of mysteries that take place on the Isle of Lewis. There was a tour of locations of the Isle of Lewis that…

Crestline Bagel Co.

The Gift

In a packed Sanctuary, Destin was bar mitzvahed. Destin blew us all away. Near the end of the service, he read his speech, that he had written by himself, to all of us. Personally, I had no idea that this 13 year old was so brilliant & so far more mature than any 13 year…
