Welcome to my blog where I will post commentary on issues ranging from fiction to public policy. Tucked away in the Idea Boxes are “how to” tips on a variety of projects that have become part of our family’s culture over the years. I hope you’ll find some useful ideas there. My blog will take you through the fantastic journey of writing and publishing fiction, as well as commentary on politics, cultural trends, book reviews and family.

New Blog

The life of a writer is a solitary business, but we are fortunate to live in an age when electronic interconnectedness lets us tap into the experiences of other writers and of people who love books.

I hope this blog will give me a window into the community of writers struggling to bring their stories and ideas to life in the face of stunningly new ways to consume information.

I also want to introduce you to the Idea Boxes on this blog page—my way to pass along some of the ideas that have made our family’s life more interesting.

Cousin Camp is our family’s annual summer gathering.  It has evolved into a structured “camp” for the grandchildren and you may find some ideas there to make your own family reunions more meaningful.

The Health Care Act is much in the news these days.  This is a presentation we put together for our New Year’s retreat at Asilomar.  We think it’s a balanced view of the problem and of the case before the Supreme Court, with a focus on why costs keep climbing so fast in U.S. health care and the difficulties in trying to reform the system.

We like social events that have a little structure to them and you’ll see that in the descriptions of how to set up a Robert Burns Dinner or a Bridge Group.

Thanks for your interest and for taking the time to comment.
