Blizzards: 1978 and 2022
It's So Nice to Have a Man Around the House


Why am I always behind in my reading?

I read for my classes.  I get the newspaper delivered because I can’t imagine breakfast without it. I read for pleasure, and just finished The Love Songs of W.E.B.Dubois at 790 pages.

And then there are the subscriptions…

Peter and I have subscribed to The New Yorker forever, to Gourmet until it stopped publishing, to Boston Magazine, the Scientific American and The Economist.

The last two were for Peter, and although it is almost four months since he passed away, the magazines still come. I used to look at The Economist occasionally, but never opened the Scientific American.  Now, I read and like both.  (I can still hear my boyfriend of sixty years ago saying, “Waste not, want not."

As I said, I’m always behind in my reading.

I have been reading all your texts lately . You write well.


I’m the same about football. I seldom watched football with my Bruce, my 55 year boyfriend. He’s been gone for 8 years.
Now I watch football and enjoy it. Bruce is up there wondering why I didn’t watch it with him. I wonder why too
