Nancy? Are you coming?
I’ve been waiting by the old oak in the park for almost an hour
I tried calling your father and he said you went out to the lake with Bess and George
but Bess came back ages ago
I guess maybe you didn’t take your phone with you
anyhow the picnic is here
and I am here too
whenever you get here
I miss you
I’m so sorry
but I am so close to figuring out who the jewel thieves are
I think it has something to do with the ghostly figure that frightened Ms. Martin after the gala
and the twins are pretty sure they saw something out on the island
what did they see?
could be anything
anyhow so it’s really important that I go sailing with them
if you really think it will help you solve the mystery
couldn’t solve it without them
just let me know when you get back
maybe I can see you afterwards?
i don’t know if i’ll have reception on the lake
it’s really hard for cell phone signals to cross running water so
yeah I know
hey I love you
don’t you have anything to say back to me?
Ned you know I can’t talk openly when I’m on a case
we don’t know who’s listening in
sorry READ MORE

The candles are lit in a flickering perimeter around the bathtub. Cable-knit sweaters of all shapes and sizes await your appointment under the big bay window as a dozen steaming mugs of tea steep quietly on the sill. Your breathing is relaxed and even. Your spine is straight and supple. Your pelvic muscles are engaged and your internal organs are as clean as the day you brought them home from the store. You’re taking time for yourself. READ MORE
On the first day, you make the decision. “I’m going to drink more water,” you say. “Eight glasses a day, to start with. Maybe more.” Suddenly you realize the break room has gone silent. The sun sinks below the horizon as a sign of respect. You begin right away, finishing the cup of water already in your hand. READ MORE
