I'm a Yankee doodle dandy.

I have a good life here in Sarasota FL.

My life includes good friends, fabulous weather, a nice home (with three gorgeous pets), and membership and ministry in an excellent Episcopal church.

I am grateful.

But I miss New England.  I miss the four distinct seasons. I miss the hills and the mountains, the valleys and the streams.

Mostly I miss thoe wonderful parts of New England life  which include:

 a generally  liberal outlook on life;

a deep appreciation of education and of culture, 

and a lack of ostentation.

It’s not that New England is better than Florida.

It’s more that I am a “Yankee” at heart.
