February is over, and with it the “Special Days” project. We had entries this month from 22 different contributors. (Way to go!).  March’s theme is Wind. That one is full too. Hope we get as good a box of chocolates as we did in January and February. Everyone who did contribute in February . . . take a bow. […]

Happy birthday Papouli George. Papouli is Greek for grandfather. My paternal grandfather was born on the Greek island of Ikaria on this day in 1892. Today would be his 30th birthday, if he were still alive. Yeah, he would be 124 years old, but because he was born on February 29, he would only have […]

With every child’s birth, a family gains a new special day, the birthdates of the new additions. My wife and I were in our mid forties unable to have children, and so we decided after a number of years of trying the natural way, and then trying the natural way with enhancing treatments, all without […]

She made my day, because we weren’t even talking about American history. I took a deliberate simple little side-tour into English history that had relation at all to the curriculum. American history is so much more meaningful when you have some grasp of what came before. So we were talking about kings. Not quite as fascinating as […]

The day 37 years ago when I had my first child was cold and snowy in northern Ohio. At least, I think it was, as my glimpse of it was out a 2nd-floor hospital window. I had been in labor from the day before until my daughter arrived after over 24 hours at the hospital. […]

Today is the four month anniversary of my older brother’s memorial service in Ithaca, NY. In order to describe that day and why it was special, I need to cover some background. Frank died of leukemia on September 14th after a long battle. He had been treated aggressively with chemo and full transfusions. The doctors […]

“Oh, deer! In the fall, bulls of this species – aka the wapiti – fight for harems that can number up to 60.” This was a clue on Jeopardy last month. It was the $1000 clue, so I assume it was expected to be difficult. But, I was surprised when no contestant could give the […]

Growing up in Nakhon Phanom, a provincial capital in Northeast Thailand, the four of us siblings liked to go out with family and join the activities of whatever special day was being observed. We loved parades with rows and rows of women performing classical dance in beautiful costumes. We were fascinated by a fair with anomalies […]

 Yep. The sands of time are trickling to the bottom and Special Days, our February Group Writing project still has two openings. This is bad for achieving our goal of a conversation a day from a different Ricochetti on a uniting theme. On the other hand, if you have never participated in one of our monthly […]

That’s right. The Doomsday Clock is ticking to the end of January and Special Days, February’s Group Writing Project, still has four openings. We need at least four more Ricochetti to step up, and volunteer to write a conversation about February’s theme. The theme? Special Days – some day that is somehow different from all other […]

Yup. January’s days are flying away. Only a few more days until February, and our February Special Days Group Writing project is only half-filled. (And February is a short month, too.) We need you, folks. Join us by signing up for a day. It is not hard. Really. You pick one of the open days in the […]

Or a day from someone else’s life. Or just a day. Just so long as it is a Special Day. That’s right, folks. February approaches and we are again recruiting Ricochetti to contribute a conversation about a monthly theme. February’s theme is special days. What is a special day? It could be a holiday, or […]
