teachers and alcohol

Had an assignment for the Post tonight at a hippie high school (Bishop O’Connell High School in Arlington, VA) alum reunion. After people left the hall where they ate and drank while recalling their old memories, I found this teachers’ … Continue reading

this blue, that blue 此蓝非彼蓝

Is a woman with blue lips and blue hair an avant-garde modernist? To some, she is not. To people like my mother, she is very much so. I could hear my mother scream in fear and anger if she were … Continue reading

It was sunny, but blue

This morning, I took a bus to Burma Motor in downtown Rockville, MD, where my car would be repaired. The second time in five days! Even the bright sunlight wouldn’t cheer me up, nor the crispy air. Everyone in the … Continue reading
