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.
You are so funny. This makes me laugh.ReplyDelete
I miss you.
We have been following your descriptions of your trip to Greece. You do not sound all that enthused. If you remember, Calvin became ill when we traveled to Greece at Christmas a few years back. Of course, we went island-hopping, not inland.
The trip to Greece was, in many ways, a disappointment. I doubt we shall ever go back.ReplyDelete
There are only so many piles of rocks one may view, with the odd Ionic column poking its head out from the ruins, before one simply declares, "Enough!"
I probably should write about Delphi, which was the stop after Patras, but I am having trouble getting interested in writing about it.
