Sunset Lake

I’m launching this blog now that I’m working part-time after being buried in my legal career for over 35 years and battling cancer for the past few. I plan to periodically write short pieces spanning an array of subjects, including:

  • Lessons learned practicing law, advising clients through difficult straits, and grappling with serious medical problems, as well as dealing with the challenges and enjoying the advantages of aging.
  • My two cents on politics, news events, and the media.
  • Profiles of some fascinating people – from prominent business leaders and doctors, to recent immigrants forging their way.
  • Some reflections on life, history, and the world around us.


Thanks for taking the time to visit my blog. I look forward to your comments, and would appreciate your sharing any posts you find worthy on your social networks.
