  • Granddad died when I was quite young. When I was 20-something, my dad once remarked how much he missed talking with him.

  • It snows often in Happy Valley. Rarely enough to amount to anything, but just enough to look pretty (and, sometimes, be annoying). My sophomore year at Penn State, however, St. Valentine gave us work-weary students a blessed gift: the one and only snow day I can remember during my four years of undergrad. Yes, classes were cancelled on Valentine’s Day!

  • By glancing at the title, you might assume that this will be about someone’s first boyfriend or girlfriend. But I am talking about a different kind of love, a love that has been forgotten, or in some cases never known.
