My mother’s maiden name was a series of consonants that contained no vowels until the “i” that ended in “ski.” This lasted until first grade, when she encountered the nuns at St. Veronica’s School. In America, her Polish-born parents were told that all words needed vowels between the consonants. And so her Polish name became Americanized. From that day forward, there were two spellings of her last name — the original Polish version and the American one. Words were important then, and so was assimilating into the American culture.

Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.
I throw the apple at you, and if you are willing to love me, take it and share your girlhood with me; but if your thoughts are what I pray they are not, even then take it, and consider how short-lived is beauty.
Thanks, Officer Carey
If you couldn’t make it to Munich for the Octoberfest celebration, there’s still time to enjoy some beer and brats right here in Philly. Munich’s 182nd Octoberfest kicked off on Sept. 19. Mayor Dieter Reiter cracked the keg uttering the traditional opening words, “O’zapft is,” which mean, “It’s tapped.” This officially began the 2015 Munich Octoberfest. Festivities will continue until Oct. 4.
