I was just hanging out, drinking a cup of coffee on a beautiful morning, and the most gorgeous dragonfly flew onto my porch. She (I’m quite sure) lit on the screen and spread out her wings — stunning. After sunning herself for a bit, she seemed to get a bit frustrated when she realized she couldn’t...
Thank you for support   Our community is vibrant and caring. A recent example was helping to plan a Primary Election in the time of COVID-19. I contacted Principal Leigh of the Daniel Island School, who put me in touch with Head Custodian Broomfield.   Ms. Broomfield met us at 5:45 a.m....
Summer is often a busy and exciting time for rising high school seniors who will be college-bound this time next year.  There are college visits and lists to put together, SATs and ACTs to be taken, Common Application essays to write, and résumés to polish.   This year, COVID-19 has derailed...
TikTok has over 800 million active users worldwide. It’s such a cultural phenomenon that, recently, the leader of Disney+ quit his Disney job and took over as the CEO of TikTok. My kids are experts on the platform and continually churning out content and enjoying the musical musings of others....
The Balance of Bikes and Motorists As a concerned cyclist and motorist on the island, I would like to weigh in on the relationship between the two. DI is one of the more comfortable places to cycle on … but this is only true if both drivers and cyclists are responsible and aware of each other...

As someone who can quote the entirety of “The Devil Wears Prada” and was fascinated by the documentary “The September Issue,” I love a good tell-all about Anna Wintour. I also have admired Andre Leon Talley since he first began working in the glossy magazine trade. But his memoir “The Chiffon...
To wear a mask or not, that is the question. As a local family physician, this is the question that I get more times a day than I can count and have been for more than three months.    The answer has changed over the course of these three months. It is quite understandable why the general...
I’d nearly forgotten about my recent exposure to discrimination at an airport when the killing of George Floyd brought everything back. I’d like to think that if I’d been there, I would have stopped the policeman. I wonder how many of us think that way. Would we? In 1964, Kitty Genovese was...
We are living in unprecedented and heavy times. With our children home from school, some risks have decreased, and some new risks are present. In particular children are spending a tremendous amount of time online, on social media, and playing online games. First, this is not a lecture about...
