Two weeks

Last Friday at Lake Geneva, WI.

Since my last post, the rose-breasted grosbeaks, indigo buntings, Baltimore orioles, and ruby-throated hummingbirds have returned to our yards, and I have

— reached Book 52 in Robin’s 52 Books in 52 Weeks Challenge;

— seen Hamlet at the Chicago Shakespeare Theater and realized that last year’s Gift Theatre production may prove the most electrifying and memorable Hamlet I will ever see;

— planted impatiens, purslane, and geraniums and mowed the lawn at least five times;

— reread fifteen of the eighteen chapters of James Joyce’s Ulysses (in anticipation of seeing Remy Bumppo’s Bloomsday) and wondered, “Why?” at least twice during each chapter;

— visited Cantigny Park (much of which is under construction) and Lake Geneva, WI; and

— watched my younger daughter graduate from university.

  1. Congratulations to you and your youngest on her college graduation!
    These are exciting times!
    It’s amazing to think I have read and followed and enjoyed your writing,postings,books lists and musings since your children were early in their education.
    Best of luck to all of you in these new seasons!
    We will be graduating our 3rd next May. It’s hard to grasp how quickly time moves… and how grown-up they all are.
