No Longer A Part Of The Club

Joining isn’t the most popular verb in my own personal vernacular. There’s my local PBS affiliate and the non-commercial listener-supported radio station — I joined both of those a few years ago.

Fast Friends And A Growing Family

Hellos and handshakes from one blogger kid to another, to all, with cheeks rosy from the chill of a Lake Tahoe winter and from anticipating all of the joy that had been built into our schedules, helped make fast friends of tween people who happily joined the Sorento Family last […]

How To Spend 24 Hours in Nashville
