This past weekend my dad was in town. As a native New Yorker the city is a familiar part of his past and so visits here are more nostalgic than touristy (which I greatly appreciate). One of my favorite things about this city is having people come to visit as it allows...

Most people who know me well know that for 25 years of age I have experienced an inordinate amount of death. I doubt I'll ever know the reason why, but for as long as I can remember rarely has a few months passed without getting a phone call that another person in my w...
