Turning Sixty

I kicked off my 60th birthday week with my parents and youngest son yesterday. I made all our family favorites for Sunday dinner – pulled pork loin, cheesy potatoes, and green beans with bacon – and afterwards there was cake, ice cream, and presents followed by a fiercely competitive game of Uno. (In typical fashion, […]

Sedona Adventures, Part 1

My flight to Phoenix on Tuesday was blissfully uneventful. I picked up my rental car and made the two-hour drive to Sedona, arriving about 6:30 at the beautiful Arabella Hotel. I checked into my lovely room, took in the breathtaking view from my balcony, and walked next door to my favorite local restaurant, the Elote […]

Goodbye summer; hello Sedona!

I apologize for being so scarce here on the blog. The last two or three months of the academic year were busy ones.

NOTTE by Milana Zilnik

Milana Zilnik is no shrinking violet. According to her website, “soulful singing and complex piano melodies are [her] signature, but she embraces a variety of styles – everything from folk, blues, opera and Middle Eastern, to her soft spots for rock and jazz.” Now, in her latest album, Notte (release date June 1, 2019), she […]

Happy Birthday, Mackenzie

My daughter, Mackenzie Colleen Geyer, would be twenty-five today. She was born May 4, 1994 with an extremely rare genetic condition called Trisomy 13, meaning she had three copies of chromosome 13 in each cell of her body instead of the normal two copies. This disrupts the normal course of development and causes the associated […]
