How My Wife and I Support Each Other Through Chronic Illness

Happy Valentine's Day! I can't believe Lori and I met about 25 years ago at U.C. Davis as undergraduates. We bonded very quickly over the experiences of living with lifelong health condtions. No one is going to be perfect at supporting another with challenging health conditions. But keeping a vow is not about being perfect. For us, it’s about friendship and being present. That’s the best gift that we could give each other.

The Super Blue Blood Moon

I set the alarm for 4:30 a.m. this morning to catch the rare super blue blood moon. A super moon happens when the moon in particularly close to the earth. A blue moon is a second full moon of a calendar month, January. A reddish blood moon comes when the moon is in the earth's shadow during the eclipse. It's rare for all three to happen at the same time.
