  • It was a blistering hot July in the southern New Mexican desert town of Las Cruces, with the oppressive heat making the enjoyment of summer seemingly impossible. Four teenage boys and two middle-age dads, all already perspiring, assembled in the gravel parking lot in an attempt to escape the...

  • My dad is originally from Russia, but when he came to the United States he was introduced to the wonderful state of New York, specifically New York City. He has a great love for the city, a nostalgia of sorts. Every month we visit the magnificent wonder a couple of times. But this time was...
