  • Packing for Pennsylvania: My 100 Items

    If your house was on fire and you could only save three things, what would they be? Fun icebreaker question -- I know. My answer is pretty traditional and boring -- computer, camera, safe box.

    I love the tavern scene in the movie, Fiddler on the Roof, where Tevye and Lazar Wolf are  celebrating the wedding arrangement of Tevye’s daughter Tzeitel. They are so overjoyed that they break out in chorus singing about the good times and the bad, but that in this present moment, they should drink “L’chaim” (to life). In essence, they were saying that life should be celebrated (or at least embraced) no matter the situation.
