MOULTRIE - We're all sitting there at the breakfast club, and someone begins talking about his new cell phone. It can do a lot of stuff, but it can't pour coffee nor can it scramble my sausage and eggs into my grits. So I'm left with some comfort zone.

I remember all of the Easters of my life more clearly than any other holidays. Christmases blur together with only a few standing out in my memory, such as the one when it snowed all day, the year I lost my voice completely and the two times that I wasn't home - one working in Washington, D.C., and another in London.
