Profile Information

Bio
Male, Jewish, in my early sixties, married with kids (well, at this point I guess that should be "kid"). Thanks to Lezlie for avatar artwork - sort of a translation of my screen name. "Salaam" is peace in Arabic, hence the peace sign. (No, my name doesn't mean "hunk of meat" and yes, the pun is intentional.)

She wants to get a souvenir, I later find out for my daughter. What kind…

Dad, a Repost

Originally posted Sept. 2013







Because my Dad passed away on September 1, I’m in a mood to write about him. Writing helps me consolidate my thoughts and my memories. Things become clearer to me when I try to talk about them, I suppose because I have to process thoughts in order to explain them. So I pace around talking to myself in the middle of the night and things become clear to me.



I have no reason to believe that anyone here has any reason to care about my… Continue
