I am a lawyer, born and reared in the Twin Cities. Family is everything to me. My mother I adore and my father I worship (my father is also a lawyer). I have two older brothers whom I love dearly: one, 39, is married and has a young son and daughter and works as a financial analyst; the other is 36 and single and works as a civil engineer. My brothers and I were dispersed for years while being schooled and while establishing careers (Boston, Palo Alto, London, New York; Ames, Fort Collins, Denver; Princeton, Vienna, Washington, D.C., Boston), but we are all home now—and, it is my hope, we are all home for good. The newest member of my family is Joshua, whom I met in Washington while I was in my last year of law school and while Josh was in his last year of undergraduate studies. We immediately became inseparable and have faced the world together practically from the day we met. We have recently returned to the Twin Cities from Boston, where Josh gained his Juris Doctor. We have many interests and participate in numerous and diverse activities, yet we are mostly homebodies, playing sports, reading history tomes (and passionately discussing them) and spending time with family.
Man... looking at this thing makes me miss the good ole Midwest! :o) There was really nothing to see... but we saw a lot of what we could see!ReplyDelete
Hope October is going well in your neck of the woods!
Hey, Smorg. I hope your October is going well, too.ReplyDelete
Are you the Smorg of SmorgZone.blogspot.com? I assume you are because you wrote about Rossini's "Tancredi" on my blog as well as on your own blog.
If so, you are a native of Saint Joseph, Missouri, and you obviously know the Midwest well. I have never been to Saint Joseph, but I hear it is a nice town.
I love the Midwest, and I love people from the Midwest.
It appears that you get back to Saint Joseph often.
Good for you.
I'm Smorg the opera dude at SmorgZone indeed. :o) San Diego's resident hillbilly, especially when I turn up at the opera house! ;o)
I'm really glad to hear that you love the Midwest, too! I miss it the most this time of year. There is nothing quite like hiking down Katy's Trail when the leaves are changing. Now when I walk around town here in San Diego I find myself wasting a lot of my camera's memory card space shooting at the few trees that are turning orange and yellow. :oP They're just as misplaced as I am! I really should go home more often.
Cheerio from sunny San Diego! :o)
