- I am a retired English teacher and department head, the mother of three, grand mother of three, and have been married to the same man for 42 years. I subscribe to Dr. PM Forni's concept of Civility. I was born in South Philadelphia and grew up in the 'burbs. I love soft pretzels and cheesesteaks, the Phillies, the Eagles, and San Diego. I love being Mom, Aunt Kathy, Nona Kathy, and Teacher. I spend a lot of time in my gardens in the spring and summer, and in the winter I plan what I'm going to plant. I also am an avid reader and photographer.

The Last Leaf
There are only a few leaves left on the maple tree outside my window -- few enough that I can count them on one hand. This makes me think of O. Henry's short story " The Last Leaf " that I first read when I was a teenager. Have you read it? It's one of my favorite short stories.
