We Wish You a Colorful Christmas, the Florida Bay Sunset

We Wish You a Colorful Christmas, the Florida Bay Sunset

There is stillness, a silence in the sunset. At times it is a wonderful shared event such as celebrating milestone moments, other times it is spending the moment in the solitude of nature that makes it so special.

Sunset Sunday – Upper Keys, Florida

In a play based on my life, the Florida Keys would be one of the major settings along with perhaps New York City and Mexico. The destination provided so many wonderful memories (a few scary ones too). I expect so much more magic from the Keys in the future too. Yes, I will always return […]

The idyllic climate matched the setting as I settled in for the sunset at Pierre’s in Islamorada. The bartender arrived with our cocktails and placed my manhattan on the table.
