A case for baskets or a basket case?



Happy Easter week!

Allow me to start out on the slightly serious side. If you have time, please read this excellent article by Ian Thompson. Ian is the Associate Publisher of the Chronicle Herald. This story appeared in the Herald Magazine this past weekend. I happen to agree with just about every word in the article. Here’s the link:

Easter week means a lot of different things to different people. I have been in a church choir for most of my adult life so Easter week means spending a lot of time in church. Do you have Easter traditions like you do for Christmas?  Some people of the Catholic persuasion still observe Lent.  I gave up desserts for Lent but truth be told, this wasn’t as much about penance as it was about my waist line. I crave sweets and Lent is one time of the year that I have a convenient excuse to lay off them. Easter morning will not be pretty. I plan to go to S@L bakery on Saturday and buy a fresh lemon meringue pie. Betty is gluten free and won’t be partaking. You do the math.

Back in the dark ages, we could expect to receive a skipping rope, a hula hoop or a sponge rubber ball for Easter. And the women all wore Easter bonnets. Bring back the bonnets!

Oh yes. Speaking of math, I have a story just about ready to go about “new math.” I ask you, what was wrong with the old math? The story is called “ It Doesn’t Add Up.”

Question: Is your cup half full or half empty? I guess it depends on your view of the world when you first put your feet on the floor in the morning. My Tuesday story this week ( which will be published on Wednesday) is all about positivity and how each of us has the ability to make the world a little brighter. The story is called “ Making a Difference” and takes place at a newsstand in the Orlando airport.

I do believe I will be seeing golf balls in my sleep after the orgy of watching almost every shot from The Masters golf tournament this past weekend. Watching Bubba win a second green jacket was great entertainment

Have a great week.

P.S.  Just wanted to let you know that I have been asked to write a weekly column for a new weekly paper for Cape Breton, called “The Cape Breton Star.” The paper is owned by the Chronicle Herald and will be launched in May.
